I put together a few statistics from my blog to sum up 2014. I thought I’d share them with you:
— In 2014, I started with the Dominican Republic and ended with Guinea.
— At the end of 2014, I completed the 69th country for this blog. I am now 35.8% finished with this project.
— Of the countries I have completed,
23 (33.33%) have been in Africa
19 (27.54%) have been in Europe
9 (13.04%) have been in Asia
7 (10.14%) have been in the Caribbean
6 (0.09%) have been in South America
4 (0.06%) have been in Central America
1 (0.01%) have been in North America
— Of the 69 countries I have completed so far, 127 languages are represented in some capacity, either as an official language or at some kind of national/regional/vernacular level. Here are the ones who have some kind of status in three or more countries.
— As of December 31, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EST, I have had a total of 123,595 pageviews and have been read by at least one person in 152 countries. I have posted 340 blog posts since I started in February 2012 and now have 19 followers.
— Here are the top ten countries based on the number of pageviews (of all time):
1. United States
2. United Kingdom
— If everything goes as planned for 2015, I will start with Guinea-Bissau and end with Liberia. And then I will only be two countries away from the halfway point of this project.
Thank you for reading my blog, and I hope you continue into 2015. And as always: stay global, my friends.
