Ummm… is this thing on?
Oh, there you go.
…where were we?
Oh, yes of course…
Finally, after more than half a year of being out of the loop (or at least from this loop), we finally got to squeeze a little time to put this one entry up on the blogosphere. Yes, yes, I’m well aware of how long ago I last posted. And if my memory serves me right, the last time I blogged here, Dolphy was still alive.
So, what happened?
Honestly, I don’t know.
But, aren’t we all glad to finally have this place up and running again? And just in time, with the year just three weeks old, we finally got this flight off the ground to fly online.
And of course, how can I forget to offer apologies to the folks who have been sorely missing their daily dose of insightful blogging from this side of the net. Please do understand; droughts of thoughts happen even to the best of us.
But that is all over now. This is a new year, and so that means a new set of adventures and blessed experiences awaiting us.
So, thank you for hanging on with me here.
Please tell the followers who have left us…
And hopefully, for a good, long while.
(Preface: It was a fully loaded day yesterday, and so we actually missed one day blogging, and right on the very day that this blog turns 4. I apologize for that, folks. Nonetheless, here we are, with a few minutes of this day to slip a moment of blogging. And so we fire away.)
rcandcess.wordpress.com turned 3 yesterday! It was in 2008 when I started blogging from a gasoline station somewhere along Aguinaldo Highway in Imus, Cavite. And since then, we have served out 538 posts under 16 categories and 222 tags, received 425 comments, and spammed by 9,024 unknown identities (I wanted to include this figure for fun’s sake). Amazing!
Here now is a rundown of all the top posts and other figures for the past year:
The most viewed file for this year is:
Earthquake Safety Precautionary Measures » earthquake-next-one-photo-rtre2o5-sw
This is actually a link connected to a photo from the National Geographic on a devastated highway during an earthquake. It got 5,792 views the past year.
The most viewed blog post is:
One of our most followed blog items are those for the UAAP. In fact the second most viewed blog post to this one is a UAAP post from season 72!
The word EARTHQUAKE brought in 4,885 views to our site for the past year. Funny, the second most searched word that brought viewers to our blog was the word PANGET.
Now with a way find out where in the world are our viewers coming from, our blog has been viewed in 45 countries in the world. Aside from the Philippines and US, our other viewers were from the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Brunei Darussalam.
Still, our top commenter of all time is our fellow blogger and fellow rusher Specialist Joe. Please check out his blog as well!
I don’t know how it happened, but even with only four blog posts for the month, the month of September 2011 was the busiest month in the past year. One reason could be the championship game between Ateneo and FEU for UAAP S74.
As of today, rcandcess.wordpress.com has been viewed 57,066 times since it was born!
Once again, thank you everyone for patronizing this humble blog.It is always a joy to see our stat charts telling us that we are bringing people insightful and inspiring bits that have been helpful for them. We look forward to more years of joy and happiness through our blog!
Well… at least, for me.
We’re bringing to you the best of the best as RC and Cess’ blog turns three this month! Let every one else keep the flames from burning this fire prevention month, but for the rest of us, we’re going to light ablaze each and every day of the month with posts, pictures and stories that will keep you wanting the next day to come.
As always, we will be naming the top post and other entries for the year, as well as give our annual report (wow, parang declaration of SALN lang, no?) to get to see who saw what and when.
One thing new, though, is that we have a new blog site also, Snap and Write, my recently created photo-poetry blog. Please do visit the site for you lovers of photography and poetry.
And of course, the last day of the month is reserved for the entry that always bears roman numeral numbers for a blog title.
So, we invite you to join us for the next 30 days of fun-filled blogging here at RC and Cess!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
(Itinaon ko na rin that my 500th blog post would be for my Chelsey, kaya, heto’t pinag-isa ko na yung top three sa list)
