December accomplished milestones by itself (I didn’t update the blog nor any social network because of the winter break I took), but December is special because is the end, so it’d be nice if I share the milestones of the year, too.
I always do the monthly report by myself, but for the annual report, I had help.
Remember when I told you that if you use WordPress for blogging, they’d make you a beautiful infographic every year of how your work move all the numbers around your blog? Well, mine just arrived!
They did it again! BUT this is the first time I’m actually publishing it for you. So, enjoy!
2015 in review thanks to WordPress ❤
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 33,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 12 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Some of my favorite stats from the annual repport
- 33,000 visits are not bad at all for a personal blog like this one!
- +400 photos uploaded to my blog
- +80 new published posts
- I love blogging on Wednesdays (19 posts on a Wednesday)!
- My 5 most popular posts are written in Spanish.
- My top 5 referring sites are social networks, including Google Plus!
- All of you came from 112 COUNTRIES! This is by far my favorite stat this year! ❤ (2013 were 87, 2014 were 101 and 2015 were 112!).
This annual report has given me perspective and there’s a lot of things I want to try this 2016. But I’ll focus on 2. I want to try a full year only blogging in English and see what happens. Since I started last year, I’m starting to know you. But I can do a better job. That’s why I will focus on you this 2016. I hid all my Spanish posts to welcome all my English speaking friends.
Don’t worry about my Spanish speaking friends, they’re cool and I’ll keep in touch with them only through email all 2016.
As I want to be friends with you, I knew I couldn’t do what I did before, like only publish when a full post is ready. So, I’m publishing every Monday at 3pm.
I can’t expect to make new friends if I don’t commit to be around all year. That’s only fair. That’s why I’m publishing on a weekly basis. If you can’t make it to our weekly date and come here, let me write you an email every once in a while, you only have to join for my email updates here: http://kath.pw
Milestones that made me happy this December
I took a little winter break from publishing. I only did it because of 2 things:
- I’ve been working the entire year, since January, non-stop.
- By November, I’d accomplished all the goals I wanted to accomplish on 2015.
Plus, I’ve never took a winter break since I started blogging. And worse, I published like crazy on Decembers because it was the only month I had the time to do it.
So by the time January came, I was tired. That was crazy. So, this time I rewarded myself with a little winter break and a little trip to Guatemala.
I thought on doing this trip by myself, like I always do, but at the last minute, I told my friends about it and they were more than happy to do it. It was the best choice!
Can’t wait to tell you all about it but let’s focus on the milestones this time, mmmk?
+800 photos at Instagram
The only social network I couldn’t resist to publish something on was Instagram! I’m in love with Instagram, I can’t help it! I try to publish a photo every day over there.
If you want us to be closer friends, you might want to see my everyday life over there: https://www.instagram.com/queith/
30 amazing products on Product Hunt
It’s no surprise I ended up joining Product Hunt because my book was shared there. But, if someone thought The Mini-Guide for Writing a Super Complete Post in 20 Minutes needed to be there, there’s a high possibility to be full of valuable resources and I wanted to see them by myself.
Until now, I’ve found 30 products that are amazing enough to upvoting them myself! I have no doubt I’ll found more on 2016!

20 posts on Fizzle forums
I’m starting to talk a little bit more on Fizzle! Fizzle is the synonim for honest online business training and it has the roadmap + courses and a forum where other business owners chat all the time.
I know I need to improve my social skills but at least I’m making progress! I’ve talked 20 times over there!
Fizzle works as a big mastermind group, as well, if you don’t know where to start your business or have doubts about how to make it grow, try Fizzle here: http://fizzle.co (it’s free the first month). ❤
10 answers on Quora
I’m seriously making progress in my social skills. I learned to love Quora, it was a difficult network at first but after a few customizations, it started to be useful.
I’ve been learning a lot from other people’s doubts, questions and answers. And sometimes, a question I answered to myself in the past comes to me as a Ask-To-Answer request.
So far, I’ve answered 10 questions here: https://www.quora.com/profile/Katherine-Alexandra-Montero
And, this is it for 2015!
See you next monday, here! I’ll publish the next chapter of the Making of The Mini-Guide, a blog series where I’ll share everything I know about writing books. ❤
