It’s almost 2016, so I thought I’d take a look back at this year on my blog about childcare leave, parents and children, and related social issues.
I haven’t blogged this past year as much as previous years, with most of my attention in the early part of the year centered on Amazon Japan’s persistent refusal to remove blatant child abuse images and materials from their sales. We may have to try for a follow-up in a couple of months, to see if things have improved (sneak preview: not likely).
In February and March I was focused on publishing and promoting my first novel, Approaching Twi-Night (see my blog at http://mthomasapple.com for more details!). And from April through the summer I was working…
…and finishing off the long-awaited book version of Taking Leave, which finally debuted this past November.
Anyways, I took advantage of a nifty feature of WordPress that prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog. Check it out below if you’d like.
Thanks for reading in 2015, and see you in the New Year!
Here’s an excerpt from the stats report for 2015:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,500 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
