Blog status

Thanks for reading our blog.  As you know, we started this project three years ago on New Year Eve 2009.  On our blog's third birthday, it's worth noting that we've published 1403 posts and as of the last couple of days, our page view total cross the 32,000 mark.

Considering this is an unlisted blog that is unavailable to search engines, that's pretty remarkable and a statistical testimony to YOU, Dear Friend and Loyal Blog Reader!!!  If not for our small group of DF & LBRs, this blog would be nothing.  Thank You for sticking with us through thick and thin.

We did manage to put up an average of 24 blog posts per month in Year 2013.  We're confident we can at least maintain a similar average in Year 2013 but will try to get it back to the "one post per day" average of yesteryear.

As we've noted often in recent months, we have a lot more competition for our time on this blog than we did three years ago.  Our newly acquired interest in Facebook eats up a lot of time, as does The Salmon Thang and a few other special interest blogs.  If you were to total the posts from all our blogs, we probably put up close to 500 posts in Year 2012.  Meanwhile, we're guessing we've put up probably another 400 posts on the two Facebooks we manage (Salmon & personal).  So, all-in-all, it's been a productive year.

This morning, we were greeted with a nice Year End Gift--a dusting of powdered sugar snow here at Second Chance Ranch.  As you know, it's rare when we get snow down to our 3500 foot level.  It typically happens once or twice a year but never more than four in our memory.  The snow will probably be gone by lunch.
