Corbett Christmas Letter number thirty-one — 2013

CorbettChristmasLetter2013tMerry Christmas to those who regularly read my “desultory” daily posts or may have just stumbled onto my blog. It has been a busy year and although my Google Analytics stats are no longer growing (they are actually down), the AdSense revenue is up? That aside, I am including more archival information “for me” than being focused on being newsworthy. I attribute the decline in views to more content being read on phones, privacy and cookie blocking in browsers and an overwhelming amount of content available on the Internet … along with my opting to post more “personal content” rather than sharing news about technology and gadgets or information on biodiesel, aviation and Volkswagen TDIs.

As has been my habit in the last few years, I am again including our personal annual Christmas letter as a PDF for those who might be closer friends or family. Not to worry if you are on our Christmas card list though, as Brenda refuses to give up on personal snail mail cards and letters. Either way, you’ll get the message that we want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a and healthy and Happy New Year …  and Brenda would want me to include a “carpe diem” to all.
