2013 In The Rearview Mirror

OK, today is the last day of the year . . . not exactly a breakthrough scientific insight I grant you.  Nonetheless, for me that simple realization sparked another:  To wit, if I plan to cast a backward glance at 2013, at least the blogging portion of it, before 2014 barrels in with a roar, it is pretty much now or never.  For those whose instinctive reaction was to scream “Never”,  I can only say, “If I had wanted your vote, I would have mailed you a ballot!”   (Forgive me.  I love that snarky little rejoinder and this is the first opportunity I have had this year to work it into this blog.)

Not to worry.  This post is going to be to soul of brevity.  All the heavy lifting was done by others as the following sentence reveals.  “The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.”  If you have been pining for a statistical summary of Travel By Terry to the point of clinical obsession, this post is for you!   If you are simply so bored that even the prospect of wading through this data sounds mildly amusing, this post is perfect for you as well.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,700 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

What say we meet back here in 2014 for more rollicking good fun?
