Day 31: 2015 in review

It’s the final day of the #31dayblogchallenge to write every day in December. I did it! Woohoo! My goal for January is to post twice a week.

2016 is just hours away so I thought I’d end the year with a fun report on my blog statistics for 2015. Click through to see all of it if you’re interested in that sort of thing. See you next year!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,800 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Day 20: Explain a Film Plot Badly

I found this distractify article today. It has 25 examples of people on twitter explaining movie plots in one sentence. They’re super funny and sometimes quite astute, like the one that describes the movie “Inception” as a series of naps.

Check out more tweets with the #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly hashtag here. Jurassic Park? “A startup company learns the importance of a proper IT budget.” The Matrix? “A group of friends decides to spend less time online.”

Happy Sunday!

 

Day 19: In Carri’s Honor

My new friend Carri died suddenly and unexpectedly last week. Her funeral was today. I’m so glad that we got to know each other. We talked at length about my affirmation quilt which says, “I am safe, warm & loved.” It’s a comforting message. I’m going to donate that quilt in her honor. I don’t know where it’s going yet but will update you guys when I do.

Thanks for the memories Carri. I love you and hope you’re happy wherever you are now.

Day 17: Owl Listen

It’s Throwback Thursday! I wrote about two owls back when we first moved into this house. Choosing my friends wisely has made it much more fun for this introvert to socialize.

Here’s the newest addition to my flock. This lady has yet to tell me her name. What do you think it should be? She’s a good supporter when I’m frustrated and need to talk. My personal cheerleader, that owl will listen.

P.S. “Disapproving Owl” had an unfortunate accident when I smashed him to pieces. Whoops. 🙂
