The year is coming to an end so I take this as an opportunity to look back on 2013.
In February of this year my blogging journey started. From the beginning I did not only want to write about cigars if not Spanish Brandy and other stuff should have a place as well and I did not regret this decision. Although I must admit that I am running out of Brandy to do more tastings but that can be changed and I might even pay one or the other another visit.
It is easy for me to blog about cigars. But strangely enough this is not what really creates traffic around here or should I say not only. As you can see below the top post (as in most hits) out of three from this year is from the category “other stuff”
And speaking of traffic. When I started out I said I will give it a try for one year and I wanted to have a hundred visitors a day at the end of that time. LOL! Not achieving this goal would mean I stop blogging. ROFLOL! Well, the year is not over as I started in February only, but I already made up my mind and I will give it another year as I do see this blog as an outlet apart from serving my narcism needs.
Know you might wonder if feltedhat sees the traffic I mentioned. I could lie and say the numbers sky rocketed and I get traffic from countries I did not even know existed. While on the one hand this is somewhat true, traffic is no where near the goal I have set myself. Not even close. 🙂 Of course there is one reason that could be a factor: language. When it comes to Brandy I probably should write in Spanish to draw the target audience in front of my blog. And almost all of my cigar friends speak German. English still seems as a good compromise though, at least to me. Better than writing every post in three languages (yawn!). And I have to be honest again. While language is a factor I am very certain that this not the limiting one. But hey, as long as I consider it worth while. Who really cares, right? 🙂
To finish up I would like to point out my three personal favorite posts from 2013. I hope you enjoy(ed) reading them (again).
1. QUINTERO CHURCHILLS – TASTING OF THE TITANS – because it was the first tasting of the titans…
2. DUNHILL MOJITO – this was the most outstanding cigar I smoked this year
3. BEIJING WATCH FACTORY ZHUFENG – always a pleasure to look at
I am wishing all the readers a happy New Year! Hope you will have a year full of joy, health and happiness and do not forget to pay me a visit from time to time.
