2013 in review & thanks!

A new year is just round the corner so it’s nice to be able to celebrate some of the high points of the last 12 months. Overall, it’s been a pretty successful year for this site with more visitors and chat/commentary than ever. The stats compiled by WordPress below highlight some of the more prolific visitors and I’d like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you, not only to those people but to all who have stopped by and read or left comments. I’m just the host, and it wouldn’t be much of a party without all those great guests. Cheers guys! And here’s to 2014!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 43,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 16 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

    • Right back at you Sergio! My numbers are dwarfed by your achievements though. Although as the top commenter, you’ve been doing your bit to drive my stats up. Thanks, as always.


  1. Best wishes to you Colin (and to all the regulars here) for the new year. Lots of great westerns and noirs left to get through, so you have your work cut out for you! 🙂


    • Great to hear from you Dafydd. Happy New Year to you too, and I hope it brings you good things.
      And yes, there’s plenty to keep me and the site occupied over the coming year.


  2. Colin,
    Your outstanding and continuing success has been achieved by hard work, a perceptive and open mind and doing something that you most obviously love. Congratulations and Best Wishes for the New Year.


  3. Happy New Year, Colin! And thanks for all you do here at Riding the High Country. Glad to see via your report that I was able to send traffic your way! 🙂

    Best wishes for 2014,


  4. Holy cow, Colin, that’s a ton of countries and people who’ve seen your….blog? I guess I thought it was a website, but I don’t know the difference and my total technological ineptitude is one of the reasons I love old westerns so much—and your blog. Congratulations on a great 2013 and I know 2014 will be even busier for you. Keep up the great work!


    • Thanks Bruce, lovely to hear from you.
      A blog is a website basically, just a specialized one where you write about the stuff that interests you.
      Thanks for the good wishes and I hope you’ll be back again soon.
