Sindono in 2012

January 11, 2013

Last year I read the phrase: “Teach what you know, learn what you don’t” on this Adafruit post last year and it has stuck with me. While I am mostly learning, by sharing the experiences it may teach or inspire others to give it a try too.  Making is a lot of fun and writing about it enables me to share and communicate with likeminded people.

This blog is very small of course, and although there are not many comments/discussions, I quite liked looking back to the statistics because they show there are people looking at these pages :-)

I was triggered by an e-mail I received from wordpress about this blog over the past year. Here are some highlights:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 6,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

How is that! Makes it feel like quite an accomplishment :-)

In 2012, there were 38 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 68 posts.

2012 Visitors Worldmap

That means the amount of content on the blog more than doubled this year. Most of that was written about the pinball machine build, but the most popular post was DIY Dubstep.
But what surprised me most is that people from 123 different countries visited the site, that is you too (see the worldmap below, people from the yellow/orange/red countries visited this site in 2012). Thank you so much!

But these are only the statistics (not lies *wink*). What this does not tell is the amount of fun I have had making things, learning new skills, discussing in forums and sharing the results. The pinball machine for example would never have become a reality if it wasn’t for the wonderful communities at the HyperSpin and VP forums. People who shared their knowledge and (more importantly) failures and learned lessons have given me the confidence to try this myself. And I honestly hope other makers will find interesting content here that inspires them to make and share their results!

This year will bring more new content and new projects; new skills; more shared knowledge!

Thank you for visiting, please come again!
