A blogger’s first anniversary

September 15, 2011

I just want to say thank you to everyone who’s read the blog at some point over the last year. What began as an assignment from Professor Don Dunnington as part of my Online Public Relations course at Rowan University morphed into an outlet for the part of me that misses being a professional writer/journalist. I hope at some point, amid all the snarky commentary, you found the blog to be funny or educating or at least interesting.

I appreciate all the comments and feedback that have come through via Facebook, Twitter and the blog itself (none through Google+, not a shock since I don’t think anyone but the technocrati know how to use that social media enigma yet).

If you’re interested, here are some of the stats from the prior year.

Total posts: 74

Total views: 5,148

Total words: 55,574 (by comparison, my Master’s thesis is only 9,088)
