Finally, 2020 is behind us. The year that was a constant shower of shit.
For me there was quite a lot of stress throughout the year for obvious reasons. It’s not been an enjoyable year by any means and it’s definitely not one I will look back on fondly. But I don’t think we will forget it in a hurry. I hope that our leaders learn from it to try and prepare better for the next pandemic.
We have vaccines now which are being rolled out – one from Pfizer/bioNtech, and one from Oxford University/AstraZeneca. Boris Johnson has said that by Easter things will be a lot better but that remains to be seen. Who knows what will happen, but I am feeling more optimistic now.
At least for my blog it’s been a great year. In 2020 I had over 41,000 views which is a new record and almost double 2019’s total. Here are my top 10 most viewed posts from 2020:
- 10 Great Films about Disability That You Need to See
- 8 Disability Products That Could Make Your Life Easier
- Devotees: Exploring the Disability Fetish
- 10 Disability Memes to Amuse and Educate You
- 10 Perks of Being Disabled
- Disability in the Mediaeval Period
- How Robots Could Help Disabled People in the near Future
- Could You Live without a Computer? I Couldn’t.
- Glassouse Assistive Device V1 .2: An Honest Review
- 5 Ways to Meet New People When You Are Disabled
Interestingly, number one was WAY out in front with over 21,000 views, compared to number 2 which only had about 2800. A lot of people seem to be searching for movies about disability. Unfortunately, the average person only spends about 30 seconds on my blog and only about 10% return. So that is something I have to work on this year.
I just want to say thank you to everyone who has read my blog over the last year. I appreciate it. If this is your first time here, where have you been?? Subscribe, IMMEDIATELY!
Seriously though, I would appreciate it if you do subscribe. It brings me joy!
I have some good ideas for blog posts for the next few weeks and beyond. Things like: reviews of the books I read in 2020; how virtual reality can help disabled people [guest post]; and my thoughts about future brain/computer interface devices. So stay tuned for those.
Let’s hope that 2021 is better than 2020, after all the bar has been set extremely low. So, it can’t be much worse right?
