2012 marked my first full year of dedicated movie blogging. Keith & the Movies existed all the way back in 2010 mainly through my Facebook page, but this was the first full year that I put a hearty effort into it. What can I say, it’s been amazing. The fellow cinema junkies I’ve come across, the great writers and reviewers, the great debates and conversations – all have contributed to making this such a worthwhile endeavor. So before I begin looking back on the past year I have to give a huge and sincere “THANK YOU” to everyone who has stopped by, read my stuff, shared the page, and commented during the past year. There were a couple of times where I was wondering if it was really worth the time. And then along would come a timely comment or compliment that fired me up again. So to everyone again I say “THANK YOU“.

Now onto the year in blogging! Many people have posted their site statistics from the past year so I thought I might do the same. Here are just a few of the interesting (and appreciated) tidbits from 2012.

  • Keith & the Movies had just over 32,000 views in 2012.
  • Keith & the Movies features 250 reviews, bits of news, articles, and features in 2012.
  • Keith & the Movies had over 1,800 comments in 2012.
  • Keith & the Movies had people from 140 countries visit in 2012.
  • Keith & the Movies gained 121 Twitter followers in 2012.

So many people contributed to the great year with some wonderful comments, encouragement, and opinions. I appreciate each and every one of you. But these were the 5 most active commenters. Please check out their sites. Thanks guys!

  1. Ruth from Flixchatter
  2. Mark from Marked Movies
  3. Fernando from Committed to Celluloid
  4. Nostra from My Filmviews
  5. Pete from I Love That Film

Now here’s a look at some of my posts from 2012 that I want to recognize for one reason or another.

Well, that just touches on some of what made 2012 so great for Keith & the Movies. I didn’t even get into the Keith & the Movies Valhalla, The 2012 New Movie Project, or the wonderful blogathons I had a chance to be a part of. But a new year brings new fun and here’s hoping 2013 is even better!
