2013 in review

Posted: January 3, 2014 in music

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,700 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

    Passenger trains quit running to and from Seaside before you were born. Stick with Bumper cars to tote your blog viewers. Dependable mode of transport and always on schedule since the 1930s.

      Speaking of trains…which I enjoy speaking of…Boise, Idaho, where we used to live, has a lovely train station. Boise was the last capitol city in the Lower 48 to get passenger service. Somebody had to be last…but in Boise’s case, that meant 1925. Amtrak abandoned Boise years ago, but if you’re an Idahoan and you’re willing to bus to Spokane or Salt Lake City, you can still ride a train.

      Did you know that the video game arcade in Seaside still has some of the same games I played there in 1982?

    Would life be easier if you put more cars on your train and made fewer trips?

    Does this take into account the same person visiting Run-SteveDMC more than once? I have this image of traveling on the New York subway in a train full of other versions of myself.

    My favourite quote redarding statistics: they are like a bikini worn by an attractive young woman; what is revealed in interesting, but was is concealed is absolutely vital.

    • Run-DMSteve says:

      Your subway train sounds like The Matrix. “Never send a human blogger to do a machine’s job.”

      I don’t know how WordPress figures the figures but I’m positive they’re not figuring in a figure in a bikini. Figuratively speaking.

    A Seaside Oregon bumper car holds 2 people. If this blog were a Seaside bumper car it would take 3,850 bumper cars to carry the viewers of this blog. Seaside, Oregon does not have 3,850 bumper cars….the line for all of them to have a chance to ride on the bumper cars would be VERY long.

    And, for that matter, almost as many people looked at your blog last year as attended my first Beatles concert.
