A Tunanina: 2012 in review

Despite being a mathematical incompetent, I have grown more and more fascinated with statistics, especially when they have to do with my own blog.

I have neglected this blog recently, in part, because I am desperately trying to “dissertate.” But I am gratified to see that  many of my old posts are still drawing traffic. In case it is of interest to anyone besides myself, I am posting the wordpress report on 2012 and hope to follow it with some of my own blog posts soon. I do continue to write a weekly column for Weekly Trust, which you can access on my Weekly Trust page here. When I have a chance, I will try to cross-post some of my articles here with more links and illustrations.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 180,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 3 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Temporarily removing interviews with Kano Censor’s Board DG Alhaji Rabo and MOPPAN VP Dr. Sarari

I am temporarily removing portions of the interview with the Kano State Censor’s Board Director General Alhaji Abubakar Rabo Abdulkarim and the Vice President of MOPPAN Ahmad Sarari, because I’m writing an article for a publication that will not pay me if the quotes are published elsewhere. Check back next week. I will restore  parts of the interview I haven’t quoted in the publication, and will provide a link to the article.

I would also take down the interview with Sani Mu’azu, but (alas) NigerianFilms.com reprinted it without my permission, so it is out of my control….

(UPDATE 14 March 2009: The entire transcript of the interview  with the director general of the censorship board is back up. A very edited version of the interview can be found at Next. The entire transcript of the interview with Dr. Sarari, VP of MOPPAN, is also back up.
