First of all, a very Happy New Year to everyone – of course, you’ve probably heard that a million and one times but all the same, a new year means new goals and a fresh start. This is especially the perfect time for international students to set that New Year resolution of getting accepted into colleges abroad and starting a brand new year with a lot of brand new opportunities!!
With that being said, WordPress has sent us our yearly recap of how we’ve done with our posts over the past year which has also been our first year in doing this!
At first I was hesitant to post it because it lets everyone into our good days (which is fun to share), our bad days (which is never any fun to share) and even worse than that, some may look at it as a competition which is definitely something that it shouldn’t be.
After some thinking (way past January 1st), I thought, why not let people see how they’ve contributed to our international blog? That’s exactly what this is meant for: Keeping international students connected to each other no matter which country they’re in. That’s what’s really important – not the ups and downs along the way but the contributions, interests and gratitude shown by everyone around the world!
It also helps us to see what students are most interested in, what they feel strongly about or what might educate them the most which in turn, helps you out even more, giving us a chance to show our appreciation to all of you as well.
Most importantly, it means a lot to us that so many of you read our posts daily with thousands of return visitors and new visitors. It’s a high form of gratitude and for that, we thank you for having participated in what it was meant to be: A way to keep international students, globally, connected together as one!
So, if you’d like to take a look, here are our stats for our first year of international student blogging! Cheers to a fantastic New Year!
