2012 in review

Thanks to the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys, who prepared a 2012 annual report for my blog.

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,300 views in 2012 from 74 countries; the highest concentration of readers was in the United States, with Ireland a close second! Not bad for a little blog of film reviews written in my spare time.

So, as I am on the threshold of only my second blogging year, it’s time to look back and reflect on 2012.

There are some surprises here for me in terms of the popularity of some posts. I don’t know why, but a post I wrote in 2011 – a review of Jerzy Skolimowski’s Deep End (1970) – proved to be a very popular one; a lot of people who found Focuspullr through search engines were searching for some information on this film between 2011 and 2012!

Unsurprisingly, to me at any rate,  the most popular post of the year was my trip to Liverpool to stay at the Hard Day’s Night Hotel.  This was a fantastic few days in the city spent doing Beatles-related activity, so I may have to consider more trips to write about in 2013!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to stop by the blog in 2012; I am making a New Year’s resolution to blog more in 2013, and hope to expand and improve on the blog as we go through the year.

Wishing you all a gentle and peaceful New Year.
