2016 in review

It’s time to take a look back on the past year of The Camino Provides. We saw this blog transition from “the calling” stage, during my Camino training and planning months January – April. Then “the Compostela” phase when I was on the Camino Portugués in May. Finally,  “the beyond” phase after my return home and posting about my Camino. I am still processing my experience and have a lot more to write about. One thing is for sure, the Camino does provide, in unexpected ways. More on this later.

Below are a few stats from TheCaminoProvides.com for 2016.  I welcome your suggestions for what you would like to see more of in 2017 in the poll below.

Fellow WordPress bloggers, if you were wondering why you didn’t get an email to generate your blog’s annual report, WordPress.com wasn’t able to prepare 2016 annual reports like they did in 2015. Apparently, the stats helper monkeys were too overwhelmed with data and the increase of customers!  Fortunately, there are stats available in the dashboard, so I was able to cobble together some highlights from 2016.  See the forum topic for more details. Hopefully WordPress.com will get it together next year!

  1. Hey, Laurie, not quite on today’s topic, but I signed up for the course in Lafayette (CA) that you mentioned–the “North of Spain” with Alex Saragoza. Thanks for telling me that there was a discount for Cal Alumni, etc.
