2012 Round up, or “The Shame”.

January 7, 2013

We’ve had a tough year here at Animal on Animal. The person that writes it seems to have become incredibly poor at self discipline and has stopped updating regularly. What a dick. I’m not pleased with him. I suspect you aren’t either. Let’s not have a go at him though as I heard he’s a really nice super cool guy-man.

As is customary, WordPress has done some kind of internet code trickery to compile statistics for how the year has gone. There’s a picture of fireworks and then you have to click a shitty link thing which takes you to the whole bit, so I’ll summarise first so you don’t have to click it and try to be funny at the same time. Multitasking like an excellent lady despite having the crippling affliction that is manhood.

I did 15 posts this year. 15. This is supposed to be a weekly blog. I heard there are something like ten thousand weeks in a year so I’m missing the mark by some distance. Need to pick up the pace a little for 2013.

The most popular post was again The Dogs that Loved Macho Man Randy Savage, likely due to it having a very famous picture of the man in the post that everyone links directly to or finds via Google Image Search.

Popular search terms this year were: “hamstersmacho man randy savagerandy savagepics of hamsters, and cute hamsters.” If anyone has a picture of Macho Man Randy Savage with a hamster on him I think that post will be a shoe-in for most popular post of 2013, so have a dig.

And finally, most of the visitors were from the USA, which makes sense because there are a lot more of them than there are of most other people, and I heard they like the internet.

So in all it’s been a reasonably poor show from me in 2012, though I think I wrote some of the stupidest stories so it wasn’t a complete write off. My personal favourite was from the caption competition.

Thank you all for your contributions and continuing to look at this blog now and again. 2013 is going to be a good year, I can feel it… I think.


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 8,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 14 years to get that many views.
