2012 in review

Hopefully, better days are coming.

WordPress has ended my year with a thud.  No. I mustn’t blame them.

On December 9 I had 187 views with only 50 plus likes. I got 187 views because of all the pingbacks I listed, I’m guessing. I didn’t do the pingbacks to get more action, and apparently, I didn’t. I did it because I thought it was a nice thing to do.  Well, no  more Mr. Nice Guy  – or Girl in this case.  I need to rethink my blog or get some pointers or quit my day job – so to speak.  I thought I’d share anyway. What the heck.  Ideas, pointers, a slap up side the head. All are welcome.

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

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 13,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals

It’s snowing and I’m sitting here thinking about sunshine, warm breezes, beaches, and coconut oil.  I can’t help it.  I’m not a fan of the winter months.  My oil bill could choke a horse, and I’m still just as cold inside as I am outside.  ( can you say “old drafty house?” )

My thoughts turn to summer and a fun trip to the zoo with my beautiful grandkids that I only see once or twice a year. UGH!

So for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, I decided to showcase a few Cape May NJ zoo animals and any other critters I’ve come by along the way.

Enjoy and have a super happy new year.  Be safe!

And not to forget family and friends
