For the first time since 2010, WordPress.com will not send out its annual “Your Year in Blogging” report to users.
As far as this site goes, until today there were 4, now 5, posts published in 2016, with 1,730 page views by 1,150 visitors from around 80 countries with the USA, Canada, the UK, India and Israel the top 5. There were 18 Likes and 12 comments. (All these stats come from Calypso’s Yearly Stats Dashboard.) Compared to last year’s numbers, that is a big and not unexpected downturn given my lag in blogging. Looking forward to turning that around in 2017 with more updates and insights.
Are there topics about using WordPressdotcom that you would like to see covered in the coming year? Let me know in the comments.

This past year saw a lot of changes here at WordPress.com and a lot of my time was spent in the Community Forums fielding user reaction and questions to those same changes.

Next year’s WordCamp Europe is taking place June 2016 in one of my favorite cities – Vienna, Austria! I’m hoping to be there, but won’t be without your help.

From November 10th through November 29th, my little site received an average of 10-12 new Followers each day, for a total of 223 new Followers. An all time record and quite odd given that from the start of this site in 2011 until that time, 225 people followed this site. Sounds strange, no?
So, I ask this out of a genuine curiosity to understand this phenomenon. How did you find (and why did you follow) my site?
