Hi everyone! I know most people did their year end posts yesterday, but there was some things I just couldn’t add in until the year had ended. So, now we can do this properly and completely. But I won’t take up much of your time with this, I just want to share some highlights from the year with you. And…
I want to say “Thank you” to everyone for your amazing support throughout the year!!
You truly made it a wonderful year in so many ways! And many of the goals I had made for the year were fulfilled, some going past what I had set for a goal. Other goals didn’t quite get fulfilled, but they were close and I’m still very happy overall. Some people don’t like to look at numbers, but personally I think these numbers are very important. After all, I’m not doing this for me, but for my readers and followers.
So, if numbers are good, then I know I’m going in the right direction. Now let’s take a look at some numbers…
Well, we started the year with 32 followers and my goal for the year was to have 600 followers, and we made it! Actually passed it, with 610 followers at year’s end. That is absolutely amazing to me and I thank each and every one of you for following and giving your support to Steve’s Country!
There was a total of 19,803 visitors last year, just short of my goal set at 20,000, but I’m still very happy anyway. And we had 57,894 views for the year, I had been aiming for 60,000, but hey, that’s close and a great number anyway. For both likes and comments I was aiming for 25,000 and we passed that quite easily with 26,218 likes and 27,842 comments. Surprisingly I published 553 posts throughout the year as well.
All this adds up to a fantastic year, and it’s all because of you, my followers and supporters!! Thank you once again from both Muffin and myself!
We started last year with a continuing long and very cold winter that went right to the end of April, followed by a cold spring and a short, but warm summer. I had my dream vacation going to the French Riviera for my birthday back in June. That was a fantastic time indeed and I will be showing a few more pics from that vacation soon. Then followed a very cold and rainy autumn for us setting records for rainfall. I had discovered a beautiful forest path down to the river near where I live and I enjoyed walking that path almost daily from June to the end of September. That’s when my little “accident” took place that stopped my walking for the next 3 months. I am still recovering though the healing seems to be done, now just some exercising for the next 4 to 6 weeks to get that muscle doing what it should be doing once again.
So, I don’t have a lot of new pics to use right now, I have to rely on some older pics from last year for a while, I hope you won’t mind that too much. Unfortunately too, I lost a lot of pics that I had on an SD card which I somehow managed to lose. Sigh. Still can’t figure out how I did that.
Well, I better stop, I said this wouldn’t be long and it ended up long anyway. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
Thank you all once again!! We hope you will continue to enjoy it here and perhaps get a smile as wide as a country sunrise!!
Steve and Muffin.
