My 2012 In Blogging: An Annual Report

To kick off the New Year, I’d like to share with you data on my blog’s activity in 2012.  Thank you WordPress for sending me the report!

This year, I had 93 posts, not bad considering I only started around July.

My busiest day of the year was November 27th with 138 views.  And my most popular post that day was I COOK: Thai Basil Chicken.  Wow!

Here are my posts that got the MOST VIEWS in 2012.

1.  Probinsya Restaurant, Davao City, July 2012

2.  I EAT: Yakimix Buffet Restaurant, Greenbelt 3, November 2012

3.  I SHOP: Human Nature (Recommended), November 2012

4.  Weekly Photo Challenge: MERGE, August 2012

5.  Nanay Bebeng Restaurant, Davao City July 2012


Some of my visitors came searching, mostly for keywords: probinsya davao, probinsya buffet davao, probinsya restaurant davao city, probinsya restaurant davao, and danglas, abra.  Wow, Probinsya Restaurant in Davao must be really really popular.  Glad to have eaten there when I went. I actually miss Davao, I wish to go back there hopefully soon.

The top referring sites in 2012 to my blog were:


All in, I had visitors from 72 countries.  Amazing!  Most visitors came from the Philippines of course, but The United States and Canada were not far behind.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge

I do not use Photoshop, and I am not familiar with complicated photo editing, so I mainly rely on very basic edits- color-enhancing, brightness, etc.  So when this new weekly challenge or merging photos together to form something, I was skeptical if I will join or not.  But, like mentioned in the post: break the rules.

And so I did.  A simple breakfast of baguette and fruits contrasting with the busy and chaotic world of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.  That’s my take on the weekly photo challenge.
