2010 Blogging Review

Andy in Oman (that’s me!) would like to take this time to thank all the viewers out there who visited this blog in 2010; some accidently and some (surprisingly) as a routine occurrence!  🙂  The stats are listed below for the entire year, and have been graciously supplied by wordpress. Thanks to all of you for making 2010 a “wow” year!  Wishing you and yours all of God’s richest blessings throughout 2011! 🙂

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:Healthy blog!                                                                                                                         The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

  1. Happy New Year Andy
    Susan & I have enjoyed your various posts throughout the year. It helps to keep us in touch with what’s going on in Oman in between our trips.
    One day we hope to meet up with you for a coffee in Oman.
    All the best for 2011.

  2. Happy New Years:)

    Hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday.

    Did you phone MOP?

  3. Happy New Year to you and Susan (and Oliver) as well, Alan!
    Let me know when you’re in Muscat next. I’m looking forward to sitting down for coffee (or dinner!) with one of the world’s best water colour artists! God bless!

    Thanks! We hope you guys you enjoyed the nice long break as well! (Which I know you did looking at some of the stuff on your blog! 🙂 )
    I haven’t called your husband yet (but I have his number!) as it’s a busy time with exams and such. I will be on vacation (with lots of time!) from Jan. 19th to Feb. 1st. Are you guys free for dinner sometime then? We’re looking forward to getting together. Will call MOP soon! 🙂 Happy New Year!

  4. Hey Andy, well done. AiO is one of my favourite blogs. Keep up the good work and all the best for a great 2011!

  5. Yes, we are free, but not this Wed or thurs:)

    Don’t worry if you are busy at all, that happens. I taught english what seems a lifetime ago now, and exams are fun in Oman. I find the cheaters so much fun to catch;)

  6. OCI,
    Thanks so much! Wishing you and yours an awesome 2011 as well! 🙂

    Happy New Year to you!

    It’ll have to be sometime near the end of January. Now for the marking! (which I’m sure you’d agree is NOT fun, right?) 😉
