The Blog that was- is and “finity”

January 1, 2012 at 4:31 pm 3 comments

I’ m surprised I am still writing this blog on this New Year’s Day. This blog should be the “last front page” by now and the “Oh! Her Again” should be up and running BUT at the moment there doesn’t seem to be a fini in “infinity”.

I like things wrapped up and tidied and there is a lot still going on and “changing horses in midstream” has never been one of my favourite behaviours.

Looking back ( and I believe we have to in order to understand where we are and where we are going) I thought I would share this New Year’s Day some of the searches that bring people to this blog.

These are just “some” of the hundreds from yesterday in no particular order and some of course are multiple searches for the same subject:

school safety Lorain City Schools
ernest j king
strasbourg cathedral
embalming process
bishop lennon
is downtown Lorain safe?
sky burial
blue heron
clovelly england
industry lorain, ohio
settlers watch
vatican letters
airey neave
“joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat”
that woman blog
let me refresh the signals from my end
grief mother
woman crying with worry
that woman
brother sister letter
bash street kid
confusion quotes
Cleveland Clinic
loraine ritchey
wild horses
air burial
chris ritchey
america’s youngest mayor chase ritenauer
bishop lennon
highland costumes
hodgkins lymphoma curable?
strasbourg night cathedral
ernie nimmons
that woman’s weblog
angela ritchey do
viking funerals services
property values Lorain
the front fell off
Mark Puente
martin hines
ww1 german masonic
gericault insane
crime in Lorain

Once again the most searched this year has been Dachau, followed by “war” and religion. Locally (Lorain) the top searches have been about “safety/ crime” and “property development” followed by the school system ( although that has drawn the most daily readership locally) .

According to my annual web report- Continental US readership comes in at the top, with Canada and UK right up there, Southern Hemisphere (Australia and New Zealand) followed by Germany ( most translated language with french and spanish following) France, Spain Russia and then South America. The stats tell me that still less than 30% of readership is local ( Lorain/ Lorain County) . I am honoured to be told my writings have “longevity ” and are still in some of the top ten searches on a subject even after three years of being published 🙂

So a day in stats, a year in stats and hopefully the coming year will find an “ending” and a “beginning”……. I hope your 2012, no matter where you are, is all you wish it to be.
