August 2014, most visits ever to my blog


Blogging cartoon

August 2014 was the month with most visits to my blog, ever since it moved to WordPress in December 2011: 29,316.

This is a bit unexpected, August being a summer month; and many blogs, including mine, usually get less visits in summer than in other seasons.

Before this August, the busiest month was, according to my WordPress counter, November 2012, with 28,225 visits.

There are differences between the November 2012 visits and the August 2014 visits.

The three blog posts, or pages, which attracted most visits in November 2012 were:

Title Views
British Thatcher aide accused of child abuse 5,507
Home page / Archives 3,360
Thatcher’s Downing Street child abuse scandal 964

So, two blog posts about that sexual abuse scandal, then much in the news in Britain, plus the home page, together accounted for 9,831 visits, over a third of total visits.

A more complete list of visits in November 2012 is here.

While in August 2014, visits were much more evenly spread over more pages.

The blog posts and pages, attracting most visits in August 2014:

500,000 visits milestone on this blog, thanks!


This video is called Creating a free WordPress blog – tutorial for beginners.

My counter has just marked that ever since my blog moved to WordPress in December 2011, there have been over 500,000 visits. Thanks, all visitors!

11. Akismet has protected my blog from 304,698 spam comments, ever since I moved to WordPress in December 2011.

Juliana’s questions are:

1. In a fruit salad, what piece of fruit do you always choose first?

Pineapple.

2. When you travel, do you prefer planning every detail or just seeing where the road takes you?

I have to plan, as I don’t drive a car :)

3. Fill in the blanks. If I can accomplish _____ WORLD PEACE by the time I’m ____ DEAD, I’ll die happy.

4. If you could go back in time and change one event in history, what would it be?

Stopping World War I from starting; as it not only killed millions of people itself, but also contributed to many later wars up to now; very contrary to the official propaganda of it being ‘the war to end all wars’.

5. What’s the worst experience you’ve ever had at a restaurant?

Waiting for a very long time.

6. If you had to pick one outfit to wear for the rest of your life, what would it be?

The sturdiest one, least likely to get damaged in many years to come.

7. What’s your favourite episode from your favourite TV show and why?

The report on the 1992 Tour de France cycling race for women, the stage to Alpe d’Huez, high up in the Alps. Two cyclists were leading near the finish: Jeannie Longo from France, and Leontien van Moorsel from the Netherlands. Both riders did a track stand; which usually only happens in track cycling, not in road cycling, and certainly not in the mountain stage. See here.

8. Describe the best concert you’ve ever been to.

An ‘unofficial’ concert in London, announced just by one note in a shop, by the Clash, the Mo-dettes, and Ten Pole Tudor.

9. What’s the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

Start birdwatching.

10. If you were to face a boggart from Harry Potter, what form would it take?

A nuclear bomb.

11. If the Queen of England was invited to dine at your house, what three courses would you cook?

Three vegan courses, as a counterweight to all the hunting going on at royal courts.

My 11 new questions are:

1. Which country where you have never been to would you like to visit?

2. If you could travel on a spaceship, where in space would you like to go?

3. What is your favourite bird species?

4. What is your favourite mammal species?

5. What is your favourite plant species?

6. Who is your least favourite politician?

7. If you could go back in history, to wich person would you like to talk?

8. If WordPress would stop, would you continue to blog elsewhere?

9. If yes to question 8, where would you blog then?

10. About which country which you visited do you have the best memories?

11. Do you play a musical instrument? If so, which one?

Most Influential Blogger Award, thank you Afsheen!


Most Influential Blogger Award

My dear Internet friend Afsheen of the blog Dreams to Reality ! has been so kind to nominate my blog for the Most Influential Blogger Award.

Thank you so much for this wonderful gesture! All my best wishes for you and your blog!

Here are the guidelines for acceptance – really very straightforward.

To accept this award, the awardee must do the following:

1 Display the Award on your Blog.

2 Announce your win with a blog post and thank the Blogger who awarded you. Do not lump this award with any other award in a “basket”, “bouquet” or “collection” etc, I would rather you didn’t accept the award.

3 Present 10 deserving Bloggers with the Award.

4 Link your awardees in the post and let them know of their being awarded with a comment (or a pingback).

5 Include an embedded video of your current favourite song (YouTube has virtually everything, just copy and paste the link into your WordPress editor). If a video is not possible you can embed a SoundCloud track.

My music video is this one:
