Boy, 2007 had gone by very quickly - a lot happened that year: our family had quite a scare - my father had a mild stroke (he's recovering well, thank God), I had to move my business into a new warehouse, and the highlight of the year: our new baby boy was born a few days before Christmas.
Neatorama had a great year, too. We posted a lot of neat stuff (8,099 posts, to be exact - an average of over 22 posts a day!), got a lot of comments (47,357 - keep 'em coming!) and welcomed new authors to the blog. We had over 13.3 million unique visitors, 25.6 million visits, and 62 million pageviews in 2007. Neatorama owed it all to you, gentle readers, so thank you for visiting and for telling your friends about the blog.
I haven't been posting for a while - the baby and work had taken a lot of out of my days and nights, but things are settling back down. So, for 2008, my New Year Resolutions are to post a lot more neat stuff on the blog, to start new fun collaborations (more on this in the next couple of days, hopefully) and giveaways, as well as to expand the blog's functionalities. Which brings me to this:
I'd like to hear from you on ideas to improve Neatorama. What would you guys like to see on the blog? More current events? Less embedded videos or more of 'em? How about a forum or a community- would that be fun?
Happy New Year, everyone! (and while we're at it: what areyour New Year Resolutions?)
I love the posts, I find almost all of them. . . neat! And I love the fact I can check neatorama in the morning ,and by the time I check it at night, theres more neat posts for me to read. :) I can't imagine anything making it better
Your posts are fascinating time, and time again.
Thanks for being a good, clean source of ceaseless entertainment and education!
I used to visit cellar.org simply for my unusual/amazing picture of the day, but they are trying to get away from that. Would love it if you'd pick up something along those lines. Also love the quick flash games. Just basically love the diversity of the site.
Would really hate if you became political and started posting that type of material. There are plenty of other sites for that and you'll immediately alienate 1/2 your audience depending on which side of the political line you fall (something Hollywood has yet to learn and understand.)
Keep up the great work and have a great 2008!!!
