Year’s Summary

It’s time to sum up the year.  This blog was started on July 24, 2008. Since then it was viewed 4,755 times, the best day being September 18 with 159 views. The number of posts so far is 17 (not counting this one), with 35 comments in 13 categories, and 46 spam comments caught by Askimet (who knows what was there?!). Additionally there are 6 pages created.

The number of views of particular posts and pages shows that the major interest of those who came here doesn’t necessarily concur with mine. Unsurprisingly the most viewed posts refer to the rather not ingenious tv series Lost in Austen.

Good news is that there were over 100 people interested in posts refering to the interpretation of Pride and Prejudice, and well over 50 wanted to read about Regency etiquette. Fewer read fanfiction, but then those aren’t new stories and they had well over thousand readers elsewhere, while the purpose of this blog is Austen and her work.

Most likely in the approaching months I’ll write a chapter by chapter commentary on Pride and Prejudice, but what do you want to read about? Here’s a small poll that might give me a better understanding of people’s interests. You can choose multiple answers.

Thank you, and a Happy New Year!

  1. Sylwia, not a surprise for me that Lost in Austen drew the most hits. Often times, when something is new or evokes thought, others want info and opinons. Like you, my most popular post is my review of Mansfield Park (2007) movie adaptation which was my least favorite of The Complete Jane Austen season last year. I’m sure people are grateful for your insights, so keep up the good work.

    Cheers, LA

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Laurel Ann. I’m sure you’re right. In fact I was surprised those posts drew so many hits.

    The 2007 Mansfield Park was so bad that I watched half of it bored, and the other appalled, until I finally lost it at Edmund’s proposal. I simply laughed out loud.
