As stated in my Reflection on 2014: Life post, 2014 was about progress. Although I did not post as much in 2014 compared to 2013, my blog has greatly improved. From the annual report that WordPress has graciously put together, I’ve learned that I’ve gotten more visitors this year. My followers have also increased, which I’m glad for.

Reflecting on 2014: Blogging

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for Zezee with Books.

Here’s an excerpt:

Thank you all for visiting, following, and commenting. I hope you continue to do so in 2015. 🙂 –Zezee
