Happy Holidays! On Blog Vacation


PoinsettiaThanks to everybody for reading Lean Blog this year!

As Christmas approaches, I'm taking off this week and probably next to enjoy time with family and some downtime. I hope you've had a successful year and I wish you nothing but the best for 2016.

This year, I've had 398,520 visitors to the site, just higher than in 2014 (although we know comparing two data points doesn't tell us as much as a chart does). So, here's the chart showing traffic since 2005:

The site has had over 500,000 page loads for three of the past four years (and 2013 was just below that threshold).

I'll be entering my 12th year of blogging. I appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to read (or to listen to podcasts or to watch videos on my blog or my YouTube channel).

Again, thank you, thank you, thank you for being a part of my site's community.

I'll leave you with one last gift… Please enjoy “Gemba Claus is Comin' to Town”… a Lean blog holiday tradition since 2009:
