Nine readers generated 16,000 views?

Full-timing allows us an opportunity to experience a different lifestyle than we had before.  Some of you told us you are interested in how full-timing works and what it feels like.  Some of our readership are full-timers and we read each other’s blogs and compare notes.  I think full-timing allows time to write because we’re not spending time fixing walls, trim, gutters, roofs, basements, driveways, or working much on our landscape.

We’ve joked about having nine  (thanks to Dana, Cal, Rob, and Beth for upping the numbers!).  Wordpress says we had 16,000 visits to our blog last year.  Let’s see, divide 16K by 16 and everyone would have visited our site 1,000 times each?  No, there must be more of you than nine.  Somewhere in the wordpress blog stats it must tell me how many?

And thanks to these top referrers — we read and recommend you a lot and are glad we get referrals back.  We appreciate it.

Thanks to you readers for helping make this blog enjoyable for us.  Your feedback is fun for us and keeps us in touch with you sometimes.  Today we added sharing capability to our blog, we hope will make our blog easier to share when we deserve it.  We’re glad you read this far — now look just a little further and see the numbers YOU created.  The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for our  dreamstreamr’s blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

  1. This is a really neat report. I’m impressed that WordPress took the time to design the program to put this together. If you read this blog, it’s worth an extra minute to peruse the report.

  2. You can count me…

  3. I’m exhausted and I’m sure that the other 8 are as well…. good thing we don’t leave a comment each time we visit….. or Jim would have exactly zero time to play tennis, yak on the radio, look for new red shoes . . . etcetera, etcetera . . . .

  4. Just read the report… Am humbled to be No. 1 commenter. Guess I AM spending too much time on the computer. lol

  5. We are back on the road in our ’25 mansion. Right now we are listening to the Carillon at Stephen Foster Cultural Center State Park. We enjoy reading your posts. Keep them coming. Sorry we missed the rally of your readers and the Sydney Opera House.
    See you down the road.

    • Rich & Julie,
      The Stephen Foster State Park sounds really nice, especially in mid-January. We haven’t visited it yet, haven’t seen the 97 tubular bell carillon and will look forward to it. Tell us more about it, okay?

      Great to hear from you, glad you’re enjoying your silver mansion.

      Jim & Deb

  6. Today is Stephen C. Foster day in celebration of the Anniversary of his death (poor guy was only 37 and was broke). There was a “coffee house” program last night, and today there was a carillon concert with vocalists, instrumentalists, and a finger food reception following. We are paying only $20 a night, so signed up for another day before heading to Travelers’ Rest near Dade City. Are you heading this way?

    • No, we’re in AZ until end of Mar then a month in NC then up thru New England to New Brunswick and crawl across Canada to Dawson Creek for Alyeska Caravan hook-up.
