2015 in review (for this website) – from WordPress

Every year WordPress sends bloggers a ‘year in review’ report – here’s ours.


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,700 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Merry Chrismas from the blog :)

This blog is one year old today, hooray! Thank you to everyone who’s followed, read or shared the information about concerts and events more widely on Twitter and Facebook etc and generally joined in with celebrating David Arnold’s fab music. Merry Christmas all 🙂

David Arnold is one of several people who’ve donated an item to ‘Star Boot Sale‘, which is an online auction for charity. Donated items from musicians and artists are sold and the money goes to the International Rescue Committee UK which supports refugees.

You can bid on eBay for the baton he used to conduct the orchestra playing his score for Casino Royale and there’s a signed piece of the score too. The auction closes on Sun 6 Dec at 8.28pm GMT.

Good luck! At the time of writing this post it’s up to £232£310! … £464!!
