First Year of Blogging
Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 30, 2010
June 28 marked the first full year of this blog. I had hoped to mark the day with an interesting post but I was much too preoccupied with problems at work to think about my blog. So here it is, better late than never (and a less interesting posting is better than not writing at all because inspiration hasn’t struck). I took this photo after I got off the minibus this evening. There are several bulletin boards in my neighbourhood and they accumulate a fascinating assortment of layers, bits of papers, pictures, apartments for sale, camp announcements, dress sales, and so on. I never noticed before that the board underneath is wood!
My very first posting called Video 1: How to Make Boiled Kubbeh, a cooking video that I recorded in my office. Yinnon, whose pre-wedding photos were presented in my last blog posting (June 25) starred in that video. Interesting that we’re still the same basic group, me, Masha, and Yinnon, but now in a different room, on a different floor, and with a fourth officemate, Chaim.
Stats for year 1 of this blog:
- 208 postings
- 40,914 hits total
- Busiest day: Aug. 14, 2009 (3,963 hits)
- Top posts: Periodic Table Sweater (18,941), Irish Crochet Leaf (777), Miniature Bobbin Lace Tablecloth and Pattern (593), and Sunrise over Amman, 2010 (470)
I write about photography, food, crafts, and Israel, but photography seems to have taken over by a margin, according to my category totals:
- Photography (106)
- Israel (68)
- Crafts (36)
- Food (33)
I should note that some of these categories overlap, that is, a posting might be tagged with two categories.
And I’ve received 464 comments. Thank-you! I appreciate the comments and links that you’ve left on my blog and I’ve tried to comment as well. I realise that this blog is a bit quirky — not quite a photography blog or a craft blog or a food blog and not quite political enough to be included in lists of Israeli blogs. Hmmm. A bit like me… 🙂
