Huge thanks to Teaching English | British Council, who’ve just awarded this site their Featured blog of the month award!

It is the icing on the cake that was 2011 – a busy year in many respects, personally, professionally and of course with the blog, which was only started back in February and which seems to be doing well!

Apparently, WordPress creates an annual report for all their bloggers – for anyone that’s interested you can click the links below!  It’s very pretty!

But thanks again to Ann & Rob at Teaching English | British Council – and here’s hoping 2012 proves every bit as fantastic as 2011!


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 28,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
