World Adventurers’ 2012 in Review

This year was a good one for  my blog, World Adventurers. In 2012, there were 116 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 911 posts. The busiest day of the year was April 4th with 3,919 views. The most popular post that day was Top Ten Things to See in Zambia (with Photos) when WordPress featured it on Freshly Pressed.

According to WordPress, 4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had about 57,000 views and 5,900 followers via Twitter and WordPress in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 13 Film Festivals. That’s a tall order! But just as notable is that readership and views this year more than doubled the past three years combined. How did World Adventurers grow so fast? Frequent posts with good content, photos, and detailed tags to help users find the right posts in search results.

    YAY! Congrats on your accomplishments, Mike! Great results! And a Happy and Healthy New Year to you and your family! Hope your success keeps growing exponentially! 🙂 I’ve been enjoying your blog this whole year and it really is wonderful!

    By the way, as you know, my new YA Crossover fantasy/thriller, THE EARTH SHIFTER, is coming out tomorrow, 12/31/12. In addition to being visionary/metaphysical, it is in large part international and has interesting geopolitical/spy overtones, which you may enjoy.

    I was wondering whether you’d be interested in becoming one of the first reviewers of THE EARTH SHIFTER? I’d be truly honored! 🙂

    I am presently looking for speedy reviews to complement the release, although I do understand that we are still on the Holiday Season mode.

    I know you have seen my recent posts about THE EARTH SHIFTER. Just in case, this is the link to the latest post with details/synopsis/characters/setting, as well as excerpts galore:

    If you are interested (I hope you are), please email me @ jade.snow at yahoo and I’ll send you a free Smashwords coupon, which allows ebook downloads in any format of your choice.

    By the way, I’ll also have a mega-giveaway with some very valuable prizes, which you may like, at

    Cheers, hugs, and all the very best!

    Lada 🙂
