Armadillos rule! A blog review of 2011

Blogging for Be the Change is an interesting venture. I could write a post every day of every year and never run out of good stories to tell, interesting angles to pursue, and dedicated people to feature. If anything were ever tailor-made for a blog, Be the Change is it.

Sometimes, though, blogging feels like whispering into the wind. Occassionally, I get a little feedback, but most of the time I rely on WordPress and their built-in stats to let me know if a blog post has hit the mark. I think of WordPress as my teacher, assistant, benevolent ruler and friend. They give me snowfall in the winter, ideas in the spring, and now — to my delight — a summary of the year in blogging, including the fascinating stat that readers from SIX continents have found the Be the Change blog and that posts written more than a year ago are still being read. Pretty cool, huh!

So to wish you a Happy New Year from JMU Be the Change — compliments of the clever folks at WordPress and their able stats monkeys – here is our 2011 report. And proof that armadillos rule!

WordPress Annual Report for JMU’s Be the Change blog
