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.
