2012 in review…plus The 1st Annual Cubeys!

Well we’ve started the first full work week of 2013.

2012 is behind us and I was lucky enough to take almost two full weeks off at the end of the year. One of my 2012 New Years Resolutions was to use my PTO and take more time off. Which thankfully was one resolution I was pretty good at keeping.

But, as a result, I didn’t post much in the past couple of weeks. So, I think it’s high time I finally get around to doing my 2012 wrap-up.

This was my first full year of blogging and I tallied over 2 posts a week. Some weeks more. Some less. But, all in all it’s clear that Cubeopolis provides an awful lot of material.

What were my top posts, defined by views, for the year?

What were my favorite posts? These were just a few.

Many people seem to stumble across my little ol’ blog by way of my Twitter and my tweets. Many others seem to find it by way of some random search term. My favorite search term which led someone to my site was:

“Cousin Eddie Shitters Full” – which leads one to It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…yeah CHRISTMAS!

On most days, my little ol’ site gets around 30ish views. But, on the day The Anatomy of a Meeting posted, I had a record day – 230 views. WOW! Who are all you people?

Perhaps one of my favorite things was being recognized on BlogHer – no apparently you don’t have to be a woman to be on the site, although I do know what it’s like to feel like a woman. On July 5, 2012 I was featured on the BlogHer Spotlight. So cool.

Speaking of being recognized, I’m feeling the need to recognize others. So, I’m going to hand out some awards. The votes are in. And, the envelopes are ready for the first annual Cubeys.

This prestigious award is represented by a very appropriate trophy – the Golden Desk Chair.

The Cubey

The Cubey – Of course it’s not really gold. However, it is really uncomfortable.

So without further ado (whatever that is), let’s hand out a few awards.

The award for “Most Loyal Commenter” goes to Lynne over at Free Penny Press. Clearly my misery provides her with comfort or happiness that she’s not me. P.S. her blog is fantastically unique.

The award for “Man Who’d Really Like To Have A Job, But Is Trapped In A Housewife’s Body” goes to The Manwife Chronicles. My happiest moment was when I explained to him how you could put all of your sheets into one pillowcase for storage. Couldn’t help him with folding a fitted sheet though.

The award for “Blog/Blogger I Most Admire” goes to The Bloggess. Why you may ask? Well, she routinely garners more comments on a single post in a single day than my busiest day of views. She also has a book…and went on tour (way better than sitting in a cube).

The Cubey for “Guy Who’s Most Likely My Long Lost Cube Brother” goes to Meeting Boy. Clearly I either work with him or he’s me in a parallel universe.

The award for best “Community Of Bloggers Site” goes to…wait, what…it’s a tie! Studio30+ and A Nervous Tic Motion. An eclectic group of writers just nutty enough to allow me participate in their shenanigans.

That’s about it folks. With luck 2013 will be the year I break out of the cube and I hope you all are still interested enough to follow me through the journey!

      The only ones I know who work all those holidays ask me if I’d like fries with that. Since you are a Cubey and worked those days you are one unique lady. But then we already knew that.

        Not unique.. can we say double time and get to work from home 🙂
        But yeah, my fam was out of town this year so I played nice 🙂

    Just found you through Studio Plus and I already spit water twice! I can tell you will be the newest reason for me to visit the Apple Store because of an unfortunate accident that was totally not my fault and should hopefully be covered under my insurance, right? I plan to spend Saturday ignoring my children and quite possibly the dog, so I can catch up on all the cubey-awesomeness I’ve missed!

    • CubicleViews says:

      Aww Vicky…thanks for the great words! And, I hope your kids and dogs don’t feel too neglected while you revel in my work challenges.

      P.S. I trust you read the disclaimer that I will not be held responsible for any damage caused to one’s tech toys as a result of spit – in humor or disgust.
