2012 has been an important year for me. A year ago in January I finally decided to open this blog as an outlet for sharing my views on urban planning in Finland. I did it in conjunction with a decision to invest more time into things I “professionally” enjoy doing and want to develop in. It has indeed been very rewarding to add content to this site. But it has been even more rewarding and encouraging to discover that the posts are also of value to others.
My new studies have unfortunately limited my chances of posting during the latter half of 2012, but I hope that will change now in 2013. I’m expecting to have more time for working on my thesis and I plan to make posts connected to it during the spring semester.
A huge thank you for everyone who read, shared or linked my blog in 2012! If you’re interested in discovering some facts on who you are, the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys have 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 8,500 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.
Best wishes for 2013 dear readers!
