In the great tradition leading up to New Year we look back at what has gone before and think about the times ahead. Last year I published the WordPress stats of my blog and I decided to repeat the process this year. I must admit that I am pleased that my blog continues to grow in popularity evidenced by the number of views. I do often wonder what people think of my posts – one of the most popular is a post I initially wrote in April 2012 it has had over 2000 views and no comments – I assume this is because it does not contain what people expect? In other words I wonder if people expect me to suggest that a quick fix pill taken to help your body digest food is effective – unfortunately life is often not that easy and for functional bowel symptoms, it is not as simple as popping a pancreatic digestive enzyme pill. If this was the case we would have cured IBS some time ago and doctors would prescribe these as treatment on a regular basis – they don’t. I do wonder if people are disappointed with this advice and choose not to comment, although if this was the case one would think that a few negative comments would be in order . Which would be a little better than the lack of interest it has generated – blogging tumbleweed! Perhaps I do need to get involved and comment more on other people’s sites, is this the answer, I wonder?

Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
