Hi folks! Happy New Year (2013) to all the readers, commenters and silent visitors of MoneyCTL.
It was a chilly winter morning in a small town called Sambalpur. On 1st Jan 2013.
Sitting on the roof-top and enjoying the morning sun with cool breeze. A much needed 10 days break from blogging routine.
As usual, I was eagerly waiting for my blogging report from WordPress.com
The Annual Blogging Report by WordPress.com with collaboration with JetPack.me is very exciting. It’s for every WordPress bloggers. And this time it’s the 2nd Annual Report for bloggers from Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com.
More than the crunchy numbers and all the data; the way WordPress presents a blogger’s achievements and hard work is delightful. Each rocket represents a post published on this blog in 2012.
200,000 Views: There is a cute-little country in Europe called Liechtenstein. Every year, around 55,000 tourists visit this beautiful country.
And MoneyCTL was visited 200,000 times by online-tourists. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 4 years for that many people to see it. More number of visitors than a small country in Europe. Very funny!
