Desk Diary 2013/02 – Numbers
It feels like I’ve been sleeping since New Years day, Dreaming my life away. Anyway writing from my parents home in London, its a Diary post today although their is nothing really interesting to report on but maybe thats just me being a grumpy pot. Lets start with the blogshpere and a few updates concerning this site. Ive recently received a data report on my blog’s activity in 2012 from WordPress and I must say there was a lot of activity more so than the previous. Lets share a few points:
If 19,000 people can fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 76,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it!
In 2012, I wrote 158 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 237 posts.
The busiest day of 2012 was January 22nd with 7,446 views. The most popular post that day was Holo on the Great Wall of China.

In total I am registered in 3 social sites:
My facebook page has reached a total of 300 likes, my twitter account has also risen to 409 followers while in my google plus 163 people have me in their circles. These are incredible numbers which I never thought I would have when I first started so Im deeply grateful to everyone who liked,followed and added me.
So too conclude 2012 was a very successful year for blogging even if I had a few inactivity. Nevertheless I hope it continues but only through your support which I will work hard to maintain our already good relationship.Now In other news related to Arsenal (football team I support for new readers), I officially became a red member a few weeks ago receiving my membership card, It was a proud moment and since, booked a few games to watch at the Emirates Stadium, the recent game being Arsenal vs Liverpool 2 days ago which finished 2 all. The stadium is wonderful and for those fans criticizing Arsene Wenger and the board for lack of ambition really im sure haven’t been to the stadium.
I know its been 8 years without trophy but as fans we need to keep the faith and stick with the team. My next game will be on Saturday where they will play against Stoke, will be a physical game but im confident the team will pull through and get the 3 points, im expecting Giroud to add a physical presence and bully their defence. Come on you gooners!I just realised that the last acquired Figure I bought was in January being the Beatless – Lacia – 1/8 by Good Smile Company. Im glad to say that the wait is over, well until I receive them. I just ordered myself Steins;Gate – Amane Suzuha by Alter, Mawaru Penguindrum’s – Princess of the Crystal by GSC and Nisemonogatari – Araragi Karen again by GSC, all 3 being PVC 1/8 figures. Further, Ive also ordered both Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb – Miyako and Yuno Nendoroid by GSC. So my figure collection is finally going to be increased and looking forward in getting them.
Finally for today, my friend Wibi who Ive mentioned quite a few times here has a new blog makeover called Vivid Country. You guys should check it out especially for travel enthusiasts. He has been writing up a lot on Bali which is a great place to go on holiday. Youll also find stories on Japan and Perth.
Right, that’s that, back soon with some kind of post. Until then.
