Hey, just because I was going to say some interesting stuff about interesting stats! The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,300 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
I got 92 countries in a year. One of these days, I’ll start keeping track and try to get all of them, or all of them with Internet, anyway . . .
My main point with blogging stats is this — while the Disney Death Star may have done something terrible, we’re not the Graveyard of Alderaan. They didn’t obliterate Star Wars. We’re more like Toprawa, cut off and quarantined and made to beg in humiliating ways — but the thing we love still exists. It’s out there. Keep fighting for it, guys.
What Disney gave me this year, apart from a migraine at the horror of Episode Abrams, was a lot of hits on my blog. On August 14, my “Rebel Realcanon” page exploded with hits. In fact, the top searches that bring people to this site all link back to Disney: “star wars canon,” “death star 3,” “lightsaber cross section,” “best star wars canon characters,” “star wars canon book list.” Since the teaser trailer came out, I’ve had tons of hits for “racism in star wars” and the like.
Yeah, Disney has done something really evil and horrible, but on the bright side, my stats are booming!
Coming soon in 2015 —
- More Realcanon reviews (including graphic novels!)
- “Safe Star Wars” resources (places you can go and not get bombarded with Episode Abrams)
- Rebellion news (where to fight the good fight)
- A Realcanon store (show your solidarity in public!)
