No, I am not going to speak about Bouteflika’s fourth presidential term nor am I going to analyse Egypt’s Ikhwan. WordPress just sent the notification shown in the picture so I decided to dedicate a post to this “achievement” and share some statistics.
The blog hasn’t been very active this past year and even less as of late. July and September have been blank. So only 36 posts have been published since November 2013 which is less than one post a week.
I was thinking I’d try to explain or analyse it but I cannot be bothered. Perhaps it is the very reason why I posted less. Anyway, I said I’d give you numbers so here you go.
The blog’s Facebook page got a few new subscribers (do we say likers?), many of whom seem to be Guelma university students. The page is now followed by 176 people.
97 other readers subscribed to the blog on WordPress and I believe (many) more follow it through other RSS tools.
I won’t mention algerianna’s and my Twitter accounts which are more “personal”.
The Flag Counter tells us the blog readers connected from 159 different countries. Algeria, the US, France, the UK, Canada and the UAE top the list. The map below shows our past year’s visitors’ locations.

This is it. The year ahead is going to be interesting with the presidential elections and the FIFA World Cup. But politics and football are not our sole field of interest and it is safe to expect other topics as well. However, I cannot promise to post on a regular basis especially with my candidacy to replace Bouteflika.
Being politically correct and… polite, I guess I should thank you all for reading us, for commenting, for sharing and for visiting.
