(before reading play this song (I did not come up with the name of it, no offense))
today it has been one year since I started blogging. My first post ever was this one, I mentioned how I got here and so on. Now lot of things happened during this year so I just want to write a short recap of the year and thanks to all kinds of people.
Throughout the year I have written 176 posts, this one is 177th.
In March I wrote posts every other day. Already 4th post was in first of all series ever, it was about fundamental forces.
Ten days after I started the blog, I got real neat blog award. I have not been very lucky on awards so far (EDIT: except yesterday) so I am kind of proud of this one.
These times I was covering topics that back then were new to me though, right now I am sure that there are some mistakes and I would be able to expand each of them by few paragraphs. When you actually look at those posts they are not much organized and it is just a big chunk of text that usually got 5-7 views.
As another months approached it could seem that my enthusiasm dropped a lot, and it did. There was actually month (August if I remember correctly) when I had only 3 posts. Something happened in November and since then I started to bring posts almost every day, so most of them come from this time.
Kind of like boom was when I wrote post about Mercury. For a long time it has been a post with most views, right now it has 31 which is a very good for me.
As the wave of posts washed over I started to finish some of my series, maybe some present readers were there already.
Right now as I write daily, my stats are kind of higher. I am standing on 94 followers which is quite enough for me though I know some blogs that are month or two old and have hundreds :D.
For some reason, the post about the biggest known prime has got the most views, it is on 46 now.
Anyway I have got 2,570 views, 1,264 visitors and almost 1,000 likes.
Now for the interesting part.
First I would like to give thanks to people in the community.
Huge thanks belong to Abyssbrain, I think that there have been only few lonely posts that he have not read in whole year and while I saw lot of other bloggers come and go after few months, he is still here. Thank you.
Also thanks belong to Joseph from Rationalising the Universe. Who has helped a lot throughout the times here.
From my other fellow bloggers I thank: Chape, Ivy, Bodhi, Matilda’s Lab, Deanne, Hop on a Comet, mathsbyagirl, Space Opera, Mike M., Fijay, Eustat, Matthew W., Blair, Poemsandpoemese, Gabriel Tonello, mliae, abhijit, StarGuy, mathblogger, Invisiblegirlsdream, Siddharta and also to Grace in the Moment, for their blogs and for reading my posts while some of them do not blog anymore.
Now of course I want to give thanks to people in my life, so of course I will start with my mum, thanks mum, this blog would not exist without you.
Also I would thank to my siblings who indirectly changed this blog surely.
Also to my friends: Šéma for his being here in the first place and chilling stuff out, Míša for her constructive criticism and also for being someone you can really learn from, Kikin for inventing t(T)ripolis and also with some new cool ideas which I would never even think about myself, Linda for learning me some life important stuff before it is too late, also tolerance in which I should get better, Radka for her whole new perspective on world which challenges my thoughts.
Also to whole other kind of people somehow involved in my life: Venca, Honza, Domča, Eva, Šimek, Kožich, Mrs. Grap and so many random and nonrandom people, surely I forgot somebody who should be listed here but that just happens so I will update the list.
