2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

And, personally, it’s looking very good for me. Especially as i’ll be trialling some new post formats next year. As well as revisiting some older posts…

I’m hoping 2016 can be a big year for both me and this blog. So let me just say this:

Thank you for all your support and I sincerely hope you all have a happy new year!

Love: The Fervent Shaker.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 59,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 22 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Happy New Year!

Celebrate in style…

So where do I start? This is my last post of the year of 2013. And I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped me over the past 24 months. This blog was set up through my love of cocktails and a need to write about them.

I love cocktails and I need you all to know it!

So whether it’s a mild mannered rooftop Soiree…

So from the 57 Bloggers , 190 Tweeters & 133 Facebookers out there down to each and every individual person who has ever read/commented on one of my posts: A very humble thank you.

When I first started this blog I never imagined to have got as far with it as I am. 13 months after I started I’m sitting here having reached over 3000 views in one month (December 2013 – 3110+) and am sitting on just under 18,000 total views. Just WOW!

Or whether it’s a rather messy Student mash up…

My spare time is dwindling as i work on my 2 cocktails books and also a side project (Sci-Fi – novel) but i will still aim to hit you with about 4-6 posts per month (more so when I have more time!).

I’ll be hoping to take this blog into new areas of alcoholism and of course cocktails will feature as heavily as they have done. Hopefully I’ll even have a prize draw for all you UK readers at some point (as well as looking at going “.com” at some point).

Thank you again and may you all enjoy a fantastic 2014!

Remember to always have fun, even it that means playing ‘go fish’ with the family…

Stairs to the cocktail heaven:

It might rain, so say the weather people; Rainy Day Cocktails is my response…

Even Sharks love cocktails…

If you don’t like sharks, how about a Mule?

Fizz things up a bit with a Fizz cocktail or 10.

Here’s Cointreau with their Fizz Cocktails too…

And even some 3 course cocktails

Penultimately here are my two Champagne Collections:

Christmas 2013

Not just Bellini’s and Mimosa’s

And finally, my collection of several Summer Cocktail lists:

Whisky Exchange, Tequila, Gin, Vodka, Rum, Liqueur 43 & Cointreau. Not to mention my entire collection of Cocktails O’ Clock Posts.

 

Enjoy and again a very happy New Year to you all!
