2012 in Review: My First Year in Blogging

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,700 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

I blogged a total of 51 posts, and visitors from over 54 countries viewed my blog, with most of them, naturally, from the United States. Apparently, visitors from India and Canada were not far behind! The most viewed post with 59 unique visitors was A School Administrator’s Response to Tom Friedman’s OpEd: Average is Over.

51 posts is frankly less than I’d have hoped to write (it’s a little less than one post a week), and I’m determined to do more in the coming year. I’m especially committed to linking to more articles that I find interesting, along with my own thoughts and original posts as inspired by my daily work as a school leader.

If there are particular topics that intrigue you, please don’t hesitate to use the comments section to post them or your questions and I’ll be happy to respond to them either directly or in a future blog post.

I’d also encourage you to relink or repost articles you read here via your own social network, as well as suggest other educators and experts that would add to my thought process and leadership.

Thanks for reading and all the best for the new year!

    1. Rich,

      Great idea! I will plan on sharing as much as I can publicly.

      On a related note, I’ve been planning another post for a month or so now of lessons learned during the head search process. Hopefully it will be helpful to aspiring heads –
