2013 in review

Just got emailed the 2013 Beauty from Pain Blog annual report.

It’s been a much quieter year for the blog – probably something to do with investing most of my energies into setting up and running a new business, while looking after my own mental health too.

But all in all, it’s not been a bad wee year for the blog. To me, it’s not about statistics, number of views, number of countries it was read in… or any of that shite. That’s not why I’m in it.

I’m in it to make a difference, and have always taken the stance that if what I do makes a difference to even one person, that’s what matters.

While it was ultimately a twitter initiative, #DearMentalHealthProfessionals was my personal highlight of my social media year, as it was something that did make a difference to many.

Thanks for being part of Beauty from Pain Blog in 2013. Looking forward to lots more great things in 2014!

Happy New Year :)

The report:

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

    You will never know how many you have helped. But, even if, as you say, you helped one person, that means the world to them. I know you have helped me…
