And just how quickly did that go? As the time flew by so quickly in 2018, here’s a quick recap of blog related facts and figures, interspersed with a few trips backwards and forth through time itself. You can’t say I don’t do research for this blog!
The top ten countries with the most visits to call by Beyond The Sphere in 2018 were (in no particular order)…
United States of America
From the top three, one country had 3699 visits, one had 3680 visits and one had 703 visits. Which country is which? I hear you wonder… well, you shall have to read on to find out!
To count from 1 to 3699, it would take roughly an hour. Try it and see!
3680 seconds is equal to one hour, one minute and twenty seconds.
In England, back in 703, nine different kingdoms were ruled by nine different kings, with two kings ruling one kingdom, and one king ruling two. Things were never easy back then…
Kingdom of Northumbria
King Ealdfrith (685–704/705)
King Geraint (c.670–c.710)
Geraint of Dumnonia (c.700–c.710)
Kingdom of East Anglia
King Ealdwulf (663–c.713)
Kingdom of Essex
Co-King Sigeheard (694–709)
Co-King Swæfred (694–709)
Kingdom of Kent
King Wihtred (c.693–725)
King Æthelred I (675–704)
Kingdom of Sussex
King Noðhelm (692–717)
Kingdom of Wessex
King Ine (688–726)
As years go, 2018 was rather quiet compared to previous years. The busiest month for visitors here was February.
In Welsh, February is ‘y mis bach’, which translates to Little Month.
The top six commenters during 2018 were (once again in no particular order):
Prenin, Beverly (BCParkison) Diane Henders, Visionkeeper, Sue Dreamwalker and Raili (from SoulGifts). So, that is the USA, Canada, the UK and Australia represented – but do these countries appear in the top three visits list above? Hehehe! Keep reading!
I posted 309 times (310 including this post), and those 309 posts held 71,261 words. I’d actually typed many many more words, but with my atrocious typing (and hindrance from Fingers, my Inner Typist) I’ve gotten through eight backspace keys.
The first film on page 309 of the 1988 book by Leonard Maltin, ‘TV Movies and Video Guide’, is ‘Fathom’… a 1967 fast-paced tongue-in-cheek spy caper starring Raquel Welch. I’ve never seen it.
I’ve been liked, well, I say ‘I’ but I mean my posts, a total of 3,473 times during 2018. I’ve been viewed (and I refer you to my previous comment!) 177,611 times. I’m grateful for each one.
The year 3473 begins on a Wednesday. The calculator didn’t go up to 177611, but I have a feeling that year begins on a Wednesday as well.
Feel GOOD! was my most used category during 2018. I use Feel GOOD! for anything, as I think no matter what Feeling Good is always the basis for the next best thing… even if my posts weren’t quite as good as they could have been, there is always the chance the next one will make up for it. Or maybe not, but whatever.
And that’s it for 2018. I shall see you again in 2019, so Happy New Year! to one and all.
Oh, I did promise. The countries with the highest visits were… ah well, just have a look at the map. Stats are fun, but they aren’t everything, are they?
