The Cow Pasture’s 2015 Review

Thanks to WordPress.com for preparing this 2015 annual report for the Cow Pasture. It has been a year of growth, in spite of life and health getting in the way. I am proud of my accomplishments and hope I brought something to your table, be it a story or information.

To all my readers, Thank you, and, particularly, those who take the time to comment and interact. Feedback is the lifeblood of the blogging community. I encourage each of you when you read something helpful, inspirational, or thought-provoking- speak up, say something, comment and even debate. Communication, after all, is what brings us together.

Here’s to an even bigger and better year for all of us.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,900 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
