2013 in review

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

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 50 trips to carry that many people.

Thank you for reading last month!

Sometime yesterday morning, on the final day of August, the counter for the month crept up over 400 views – the second best month this blog has had.  Thanks everyone, and I do hope you enjoy what you are reading.  I know at times I’m blogging a lot and then it appears I drop off a cliff, but I’m going to attempt to be much better at that.

I appreciate your views and comments.  Please feel free to re-post, re-blog, like and tweet all you want. Anything you do gets me even more views and helps me reach a wider audience, which in turn helps me to be inspired to keep writing.

Thanks again!

Thank you for reading! 3000 page views!


I just wanted to say a really big THANK YOU to all of you who have ready and followed my little corner of the interwebs over the last 3 years.  I never really expected to be read all that much by all that many people, and yet sometime within the past hour or so, the Big Man Big Loser blog crested over the 3000 page view mark.  I get a lot of satisfaction knowing that people are reading and following along, and that people are inspired by what I’ve done, or what I’ve written, or just come here and get a laugh, a smile, and a (very small) bit of knowledge.

It’s only been four months since this blog reached the 2000 page view milestone, and I know many of the somewhat popular blogs out there get that in a day.  I’m happy to have ever reached it at all, so please keep it up, tell your friends, spread the word.  I’d like to reach 5,000 views in much less than 4 months, which itself is a lofty goal.

Thanks again, and I’ll keep writing if you keep checking!

Boobs. They’re worth running for!

I’m going to run.  No matter what, I’m going to run.  I do it all the time (less so lately due to a really annoying injury) but I still run, frequently.  Usually it’s well more than 5k.  I post about it (well, my phone does) on Facebook and Twitter, and it is commented on regularly.  It’s probably the most common thing I do post on Facebook, so I’m not surprised.  Given that I do run, that I’m going to run, I decided that maybe I will do some good while I’m doing something I’m going to do anyway – I’m going to participate in this years’ CIBC Run for the Cure in Vancouver.  It takes place 2 weeks and 1 day from this posting.  In deciding that, I’ve gathered a few committed folks from my company, FirstOnSite Restoration, in our lower mainland offices – we have a team of 6 and are looking to raise $5,000.  I’m going to put it right out there that you should donate somehow.  Here’s my criteria:

  • If you are walking, running or volunteering, thanks.  Go and do your deed.  Raise funds.  Plant flowers.  Be karmically happy.
  • If you know someone who is walking or running, sponsor them, especially if they have boobs of their own.
  • If no one closer to you than me has asked you to donate, consider yourself formally asked.  Donate to my run. I’m raising money.   You can do so quickly and easily at my donations page.

Over the 2000 page view milestone.

Sometime around 10:30 PDT this morning, my blog reached over 2000 page views.  With the post on yoga and massage that I put in earlier today, I also surpassed the 30 post milestone.

I just wanted to say thanks to all the folks that follow and read my little corner of the world, and to say thanks for sticking with me on my journey over the past 2.5 years.  I’ve renewed my committment to posting – you will see new content from me every few days, I’m planning Wednesdays for smaller posts, and Saturdays for longer ones like my post on yoga and massage, or staying fit while you travel.

The next milestones for me are 5000 views and 50 posts.  Which one will I get to first, I wonder?  With your help it will be the page views!
