WordPress Reports On Me, To Me

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

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 10,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 17 years to get that many views.

  1. Pauls,
    I attended a reading as part of the Seattle Lit Crawl in November and won a raffle, which turned out to be a copy of Evel Knievel Days. You asked me to tell you what I thought through the blog.

    Excellent book. I enjoyed the read very much. That’s important to me, because I find myself dragging through some books with big reputations to see why they have those big reps and too often regret the experience. What struck me was the likeability of the characters, especially Khosi and his mother. I’m less enamored with Akram, for the obvious reasons (characters who do bad things are less sympathetic, but interesting) and non-obvious reasons (personal experience with borderline personalities). The combined Montana/Egypt setting puts the novel in this novel.

    There are a few things I would change, of course, but I’m not going to catalog them here. I am a little disappointed that Evel himself wasn’t the ghost and did not jump a pyramid. On the whole, I found this hung together very well and I’d read more of your work and recommend this book to friends. That’s probably the best test of any work of fiction. I wouldn’t be writing this note if I didn’t like the book.

    For frame of reference, I also write fiction ( http://www.RobertPKaye.com ).

    Regards, and thanks again for the great read.

    • Thanks, Robert. The kind words mean more than you might think!
      I will check out your site! You know, that was a fun night — the folks at Tin House host a good event.

      • Pauls,
        I also happened to see you were on Brad Listi’s Other People podcast and listened to that. You’ve hit the big time. I could never write without seeing the words on the page though – your trick of using the wireless keyboard would drive me crazy.

        Best of luck with the book. I’ll be talking it up.Bob
