2011 in Review: For Love of Exploration

In 2011 blogging became an extension of my everyday life.  I took pictures with it in mind, I cooked with it in mind, I planned my weekends with it in mind and honestly I constantly toyed with the idea of figuring out just how I could blog & promote my own brand 8 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Okay time to get real…the reality of the situation is that I am not in a position to take that leap just yet, but WordPress has given me a little gift of encouragement for my efforts in 2011.  As I still have a full-time job that demands some serious time (especially Jan-Jun) and other commitments (boyfriend, friends, family, my well-being) I don’t have a ton of free time to execute the post ideas that linger in my mind day-to-day, but the below was an encouragement that the efforts I do put out there matters to someone, somewhere out there!

For the New Year WordPress sent this ridiculously well thought out analysis of my blogs success over 2011.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,700 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
