2012 Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 270,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 5 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Guides and Stats

The new support forum appears to be working and I think (so far) it is saving me time – time will tell if this trend continues. But something that may help further is a comprehensive guide to Subscribe2 produced independently by the iAssistant.

The guide is 40+ pages long and it provides an in depth set of instructions and descriptions of Subscribe2 features. I have had a very small part in the production of this guide (mainly pointing out additional areas of functionality and clarifying how some things work). It has been written in an easily understood manner that the novice will comprehend. I hope you will consider using this guide if you are struggling to start using Subscribe2.

And since the release of version 5.1 has bumped the download counter past the 200,000 mark and there have now been more than half a million visits to this site I guess there are quite a few of you who will find this guide worth every penny!

Holiday Break

I’m not going to be around for the next two weeks because I’m going on holiday with my family.:-) I’m unplugging from the ‘net for the duration of my holiday and won’t be looking in on this site or checking my emails.

So, if you have a problem please search this site thoroughly, use google and try the WordPress forums. Also, read the documentation that comes with the plugin and play around with the settings. If you still can’t find an answer to your problem and feel the need to post on here to ask for help bear in mind that I’ll be catching up on my return so please be patient.
