Lurkers welcome but participation is encouraged.

Last year I was tweeting about a conference I was attending (@SafetyOZ for those who are new to Twitter) only to have a stranger come to me at morning tea and say that they were enjoying my tweets.  This week I asked a question at a seminar on workers compensation and again a stranger introduced themselves and said to me how much they enjoy reading this blog.

To all those lurkers reading this blog please make yourself known.  Comment if you want, and don’t be afraid of sounding stupid (I’m not), as all comments are moderated and if something does not make sense, I will email you.

2012 in review – SafetyAtWorkBlog

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

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 150,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

SafetyAtWorkBlog receives its 500,000th view

SafetyAtWorkBlog began in February 2008 with 27 views.  In August 2012, the blog had its 500,000th view on this site.  For a small independent weblog – in a niche topic – in Australia, that statistic is remarkable.

View statistics vary a lot but in August the blog came back to its average of over 500 views each day.

Thanks to everyone who reads the articles.  Thanks to those who write some of them, and thanks to everyone who comments, takes me to task or appreciates my effort.
