2014 in review
And so it is, we are well into 2015 and things have been frantic for the last
year few months. Yep, I know what you are thinking…. Apart from this blog.
A lot has happened and changed in the personal life, work and place, and the blog flow has unintentionally suffered the consequences. But before we jump into the list of pending posts, here is a glimpse of what 2014 looked like around here, as the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,700 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
The busiest day of the year was September 10th with 849 views. The most popular post that day was Time management for thesis writing.
Aligned with the most popular post of the year, by the end of 2014 I became an academic coach on Coach.me – topic for a next post.

Wow… ONE.HUNDRED.AND.FIVE countries! Another great surprise was to see that the largest number of visits came from my home country, Brazil. This is a surprise first because the texts are in English instead of Portuguese, and second because the platforms where I tend to share this content are largely dominated by English speaking users. I do share content on Facebook as well, where I connect to my Brazilian crowd more easily, but there the audience is constituted more of friends than of professional peers. Great surprise to start the blogging year.
Thank you very much for the company, support and motivation you have provided in the past year through this blog! I am sure we have a great and full of surprises year ahead.
