The View East

Central and Eastern Europe, Past and Present.

2012 in review


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.



Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

In 2012, there were 27 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 80 posts. There were 85 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 55 MB. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was September 7th with 48,406 views. The most popular post that day was The Curious Case of the Poisoned Umbrella: The Murder of Georgi Markov.

Visitors to The View East came from 184 countries in all! Most visitors came from The United States. The United Kingdom & Canada were not far behind.

THANK YOU & HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE VIEW EAST! We’ll be back with many more blog posts in 2013.

  1. Is your blog really more popular in Greenland than China, or is wordpress blocked by their great firewall?

  2. Don’t know – but I guess maybe WordPress is blocked in China. Happy New Year, Phil! Szczesliwego Nowego Roku!
