2020, Blog Notes

2020 in Review

2020 was a hard year in a lot of ways.

Personally, I went through a restructure at work that took up a lot of my bandwidth for most of the spring and summer. I saw good friends lose their jobs and watched others struggle in their new positions. I’ve been lucky so far in that I was able to remain in my role and continue on with the team I had been helping to make.

Covid has been hard and that’s all I want to say about that publicly.

As for the blog it’s been a good year overall. I saw a growth in overall views up from last year’s 10,284 to this year’s 13,047. Roughly a 26% growth rate year-over-year. That’s a very good thing as it indicates that what I’m writing is finding an audience. And while I know that I’m not supposed to care about such things I very much do. Seeing that growth rate lets me know that what I’m doing is meaningful to other people.

So thank you for reading my blog. It means a lot.

A few other numbers for my fellow nerds.

Post frequency

  • 2020 saw 61 posts compared to 2019’s 75.
  • This represents a decline of 18% in overall post frequency.

Other Random Stats

  • I bought 10 new RPG books.
  • Backed my first Kickstarter (which delivered on time).
  • Discovered 22 new bands, mostly new western music, ska, and thrash. (Yeah, I have no idea what’s going on with my musical tastes either)
  • Beat two video games
  • read 16 novels
  • Voted and won with 3 of my candidates.
  • Got promoted at work

So, how was your 2020?

  1. More stressful than usual and a different kind of stress.

    16 novels? Wow! I only wish I could find the time to read that much. I think I got through 3 or 4 (maybe!) the last 18 months.
