I started this four years ago, and keeping up with self-inflicted tradition, here are some stats added to last year’s (from here):

Since it is obvious that I posted much less last year, about half of what I did in 2014, I gained fewer visitors and followers. Some of it lies in fact that I did much less photography. I also posted less in general categories, meaning my thoughts. In exchange, I posted more of my paintings, this is now where I spent much of my free time. That and obviously reading. Major difference here is that earlier I posted some insights from books I read, this year I did not do that.
Those statistics are thought-provoking. It is obvious that I failed to do what I intended to (post more often), and I can see that here I need to work on myself. I am still happy that I managed to continue this, I often come back to my own posts to show some friends my images or paintings. I don’t do this for commerce related reasons, meaning that I am not posting for followers trying to hit a popular vein, I suppose that one of the reasons (in addition to my posts not being that much interesting) why I don’t get that many followers or views is that I don’t write exclusively about a particular subject. I tend to be all over the place. I am curious though if this wake up call in terms of statistics will make me post more.
For the fourth time, to all of you who are still with me: Thank You!
