Transparent Christina’s 2011 in review #netDE #RTTT

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 42,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 16 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Finishing 2011 strong: Nearly 83,000 hits on Transparent Christina. #netDE

For a niche blog about a niche, albeit important issue, we beat our goal for the year. Here’s how I laid it out last year:

Last year TC set an ambitious goal of 35,000 hits and the loyal readers rose to the occasion and helped break that goal with a final total of 38,095 hits by year end. Who knows what is in store for 2011, but with the Partnership Zone, insane Federal intrusion, and the ever reliable editors at the News Journal, it should be quite a year! Lets go get to the new finish line: 65,000 hits by 12/31/2011!!!!!

So we smashed 65K by almost 18K. Lets go for 120K hits by 12/31/12!!!!!!! All the same reasons apply……LOL.

Thanks to all my loyal readers!!!!! Together we got it done!

DDOE spokesperson confirms non-public meeting to media, school made aware of “delivery concerns” over holiday break! #PZ #RTTT

Another stunning example of how the Delaware Department of Education undermines their own authority and credibility. I am all for the public knowing about the PZ and the progress of it, after all public schools are a public trust. However, common courtesy should not include confirming a meeting with nebulous concerns to a media outlet in advance. No, the failure to be specific beyond “delivery concerns” does not ameliorate the error, it merely exacerbates it.

This is just plain disgusting behavior from what is becoming commonplace from the DDOE and its PIO.

To the hard working faculty, administrators, staff, paraprofessionals, custodians, food services and dedicated volunteers of Glasgow High School: I am so sorry that the DDOE can’t do better and I hope you can finish your winter break on a good note.

To the students and parents of GHS, please come to our next public board meeting on 1/10/12 looking for answers, you deserve them.

Above all else, we strive to bring you the best selection of movies, sporting events and television channels. Annually, the owners of these TV channels increase the fees they charge to DIRECTV for the right to broadcast their content. As a result, DIRECTV must periodically adjust the pricing and channel lineups of some of our programming packages so that we can keep these channels in your package.  

This year, the programming costs we pay to owners of TV channels will increase about 10%, but we have chosen to adjust the prices our customers pay by an average of only 4%. On February 9, 2012, new pricing will be applied to DIRECTV® programming packages and services. Click here for more complete details.

We look forward to continuing to provide you with the highest quality entertainment, service and value.  Thank you for your business.

Sincerely,

Ellen Filipiak
Senior Vice President of Customer Service
