2012 in review December 30, 2012

The following is an excerpt of an end-of-year post WordPress created for MikeChimeri.com.  Scroll down for my editorial.

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 9,900 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.

This site began in 2012 as The Mike Chimeri Blog, but in May, I did something I should have done four years earlier: combine my blog and my original website that I created through Yahoo Sitebuilder.  After two weeks of uploading files and recreating pages, the new MikeChimeri.com was born.

2012 was the year I switched to a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera, a Nikon D3100, improving the quality of the pictures you see in my posts.  The first two posts featuring pics shot with the D3100 were Scenery Pictures in late June and the Brian Simpson recap in early September.  The Matt Marshak recap from mid-November was the first post where all pics were shot with it.  Despite the switch, I plan to hold on to my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 as a backup.  In fact, my last regular post of the year, pics taken westbound on the Belt Parkway, was all shot on the Lumix.

Unfortunately, 2012 was the third year in a row where a major storm hit Long Island, knocked out my power for more than a day, and left me to relocate until power was restored.  This time, Sandy was the culprit.

Whatever comes my way in 2013, there’s a good chance I’ll post about it here.  Have a happy and healthy 2013, everyone.
