WordPress emailed me a summary of how my blog has performed this year and it prompted me to write a post looking back on 2015. I began my blog two months ago and in that time I have achieved just over 800 views from 16 different countries with the main visitors being from the UK followed by the US and India. WordPress summarised these statistics with a comparison to cable cars found in San Francisco:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 820 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 14 trips to carry that many people.
I’ve enjoyed the short time I have spent blogging and am looking forward to keeping it up in 2016. I also wanted to take a minute to look back at 2015 and put together a post with my favourite photos.
This picture is from my 20th birthday where some of my friends came to visit me at university and we all went out together. It took so long to get everyone to stand in one place for a photo to be taken!
I was lucky enough to go to New York this year to visit my sister and this is my eldest sister, her best friend and I in Times Square. I had the most amazing times when visiting America and being in New York is definitely one of my biggest highlights of 2015.
This photo marks the end of my second year at university. Our university has a big summer ball where everyone dresses up and a load of us went as aliens. It was a brilliant way to celebrate the end of second year.
This is the first picture I took with our new puppy Rufus! He has got so much bigger and I definitely underestimated how stressful a puppy can be at times but he has been a great addition to the family.
Bestival was one of the best weekends of the year and I love this picture my friend took of me and Alice when we were dancing to Missy Elliot. Its not the best quality but it captured such a brilliant moment where were dancing like morons.
This is a photo of my friend Ellie and I celebrating her 21st. I was taking a load of photos of her with her cake because I knew how awkward she felt when everyone was singing to her and her mum took this photo of us. I love that we didn’t know it was being taken but it sums up the brilliant weekend we had celebrating her birthday!
I thought I would include my Instagram best nine from my chinsontour account to highlight the short time I have spent blogging and how much I have enjoyed it. Hopefully my Instagram will be full of new posts next year!
There are so many more photos I could have included. 2015 has been a good year but I’m looking forward to what 2016 brings. Happy New Year everyone!
