Did y’all have a good New Year’s? Did you eat black-eyed peas for good luck in the coming year?? You can never have too much good luck, you know.
I feel lucky every single January when I wake up safe and fed, and ready to take on the new year. However, this year I’m exceptionally grateful for each and every one of you here at More Cowbell. You keep me laughing and entertained year-round, and I thank you.
So, hey! Did all you WordPress bloggers get your annual report card from the WordPress crack-monkeys? It’s kind of fun, and just a little bit scary, to see your year in blogging laid out like this.
Here’s what they said about More Cowbell…
15,000 cans of diet soda were consumed at New York Fashion Week (I’m a little frightened by this stat). More Cowbell had about 130,000 views in 2012. If these were cans of diet soda, they’d power 9 Fashion Weeks.
In 2012, there were 242 new posts (that’s 4-5 per week…can you tell I LOVE you guys??), growing the total to 445 posts. The busiest day of the year was November 8th with 1,637 views.
The Posts with the Most Hits in 2012?

- More Cowbell Mash-up #6: A Shout Out To Moms
- Why Do Pregnant Women Get SO Much Heartburn?

And my own personal favorite for the year? It was actually a toss up between the Dr. Seuss-inspired Undie Chronicle, Man-Style Goes To The Zoo, and the 5 Signs You Have “Turkey Block.” Both those posts made me laugh myself senseless while I wrote them.
Now on to my favorite part of the “report card”…THE POSSE.
More Cowbell wouldn’t be have as fun if y’all didn’t have so much Cowbell. Here’s the people who shook their cowbell all over the place in 2012.
The 5 most active commenters for the year?
A special shout out is in order for Kathy Owen who wrote A Cowbell Timeline back in April. Not only did she get the entire history of the cowbell into a single post, she worked baby pics of me into the timeline. That took some spooky talent.
Have you taken a moment to give yourself a “blogging report card” from 2012? What did you like the most? What was your least favorite part? What’s your biggest goal for 2013? (Don’t be shy…hang that goal right out there for us to see!) Enquiring minds LOVE to know these things here at More Cowbell!
Last, but not least, we shared writerly links that rocked our world over at Writers In The Storm today (I think you’ll like ’em.🙂 ). What fave link would you like to share down in the comments?
