1 year blogaversary

Hip Hip Hip.....
Sometime last year in my little room, I was at the edge of boredom and didn't know what to do about it.  The only thing that came to my mind then was blogging, and most people who know my impulsive nature will know I didn't even think twice. I just headed straight into it.

One year later, I must confess I'm no longer bored hence the frequency of my posts has reduced.. Having a blog have made me realize that to be a successful blogger, you must be talkative in nature... Or else how can you explain having to write new things on a daily basis?
I am just trying to give excuses for not posting more, but today is not a day of excuses. I am grateful to all my readers and everyone who has supported this blog in one way or the other.

So on my anniversary I am presenting to you some of my blog stats
In the past year, I've published a total of 64 posts this one inclusive. If I should add those I abandoned in the drafts section and those that never got published, that number would be closer to 80

Blog Hit.
We are just a few numbers short of 10,000 hits. I know it is not a lot, but given the fact that I don't blog often and I have not really advertised the page, it's a starting point. 10,000 hits is not rice and beans with moin-moin jor.

Top five Countries most viewed
The top five countries that viewed my blog the most were
1. Canada
2. United States (it closely pursues Canada)
3. Nigeria
4. United Kingdom
5. Netherlands ( I don't know anyone here ohh, but whoever you are, keep up the good work)

Top 5 posts.
The blog posts you guys read the most are
1. Meet Faith - sixty pairs
2. Meet Stella : Miss Eyebrows
3. Grateful, Thankful, Hopeful!!!
4. Happy weekend/who wore it better
5. Ermm, everybody submit

Yeah, so those are the stats.
I want to thank anyone who have left a comment or encouraged me.
You might wonder if I have new blog resolutions, well, my earnest desire is to blog more : So help me God.
Maybe I'll just create a schedule and stick to it, what do you think?

 So today I really want to hear your honest opinions
How do you think I can improve the blog in the coming year?
What features would you like to see?
What do you think I am doing wrong? (and how do you think it can be made right)
What do you want continued?
I am really open to suggestions and "constructive" criticism so fire away..

And please do me a favor; if you haven't liked the facebook page yet, Go ahead and do so.. That way, you won't ever miss a post...

Till the next post comes your way, happy anniversary and long live bored betty's musings.
Hugs and kisses.
