A look back at 2016, and what lies ahead.

Here at Mayhem Cleveland, we don’t like to dwell on the past. But one thing is for sure, we need to reflect on 2016 before it is completely forgotten about. This is more of a lifestyle(ish) post. In this post, I am going to talk about some of the highlights (and lowlights) of 2016 as pertains to Mayhem Cleveland, and myself, Pat Mayhem.

Graduating Ohio Media School- I managed to accomplish this twice in 2016, once in May for the core program (Media), and once for Sports Emphasis, which is Sports Media. Media can be described as Broadcasting, Blogging (Which is what started this site), Journalism, and production.

My Daughter (Bug) diagnosed with ADHD- It is a tough road, but we have to travel it. I have given updates, and there will be one coming up soon.

Narrowly Missing 1000 views – We were sooooo close. 959 was the final count for views in 2016.  Hopefully we can expand on that. But, for a basically new blog site, I think that 959 is a damn good number.

Multicultural – This is something I never EVER would have considered at the beginning when I started this site. Mayhem Cleveland has been viewed in 49 different countries around the world. Our site analytics shows that we are widely spread out as far as our readers, and for that, I thank you!!

And now, for the 2016 Mayhem Awards (Cue chuckling laughter).

Top post of 2016: Actor of the Week: Christopher Meloni – This was tough. This post had 36 direct views. The only post to have more, was a post from 2015, and it only had one more view.

Top Referrer: Facebook – It is clear that many of our visitors come from facebook. 174 to be exact for 2016. The only other contender wins the next award.

Top Search Engine Referrer: Google – Many people would think that it is a no brainer, but Google provided us with 61 out of 69 search engine visitors.

Moving forward into 2017 looks like it could be fun. We have lots in store. Here are some goals, both for Mayhem Cleveland, and Personal for Pat Mayhem:

  • Lose Some Weight – Yes, most people have this goal at the new year. But it has gotten to the point where I have to. I am 70 pounds higher than when I got out of the military, and it has to be done.
  • Reach 1000 or more views on Mayhem Cleveland – This goes without saying. We came so close in 2016, that we should have no problems in 2017.
  • Begin my Media career – Yes, I have a blog site, but it doesn’t generate income. It is a start, but my journey is far from over.
  • Reach 50 subscribers – In the grand scheme of things, that is a small number. But we are only at 11, 10 technically because for some reason I am counted as one.

Who knows exactly what 2017 has in store, but I hope it is good. Keep following for more updates, and great stories. Click the Follow link, to subscribe.
