In my blog yesterday (click here to read), I said how the world will not end on the 21st of December. This doesn’t make me a genious, it doesn’t make me super-clever, it just makes me one of the vast majority of people out there who do not take the over-hyped media story on the alleged Mayan prophecy of the end of the world on the 21st December 2012 CE (Common Era, also known as A.D). A “prophecy” which the Mayans never actually made and nor do their millions of descendants in central America today affirm.

Being confident that the world will not end on that day I would like to wish you all a happy 2013, something which I will repeat in about 10 or so days time nearer the beginning of 2013.

So everyone.


HAPPY 2013.






Why am I wishing you a happy new year “so in advance” of the new year? Well it is all relative. 11 days is a short time or a long time depending on the context of course. If you are waiting for the delivery of an important parcel it’s a huge and excruciatingly long amount of time, whereas if a violent criminal were given that for a fellony it would of course be a ridiculously short amount of time.


What you wish for others is what you get yourself.

What you wish for others is what you get yourself is an important principle to bear in mind. If you wish good for others it will come back to you, and conversely if you wish bad that too will come back to you. So I would like to wish everyone a great 2013.


A great 2013 where you can realize your potential.


A great 2013 where you can enjoy financial comfort.


A great 2013 where you can enjoy wonderful health.


A great 2013 where you can enjoy happiness in your relationships.

Coming back now to the supposed “end of the world” on the 21st of December, well that particular date has already started in Australia. I am sure my readers from Australia are still safe and sound.



Sydney, Australia.

Thanks for reading.

I have achieved a landmark.

I have reached over 50,000 views on my blog.

I have had visitors from from approxiately 179 countries (if I counted correctly) which you can see if you click on the world map on the top right hand of the blog or just click on this link: http://www2.clustrmaps.com/counter/maps.php?url=https://jahanc.wordpress.com

The top 9 countries are: The USA, the UK, India, Canada, Australia, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Germany and Brazil.

Below is a breakdown of these 9 top countries.

1. The USA

At the time of writing, 11,447 views with the top area being none other than the golden state, California with 1,865 views.

San Diego, California, the “Golden State”, which has the highest number of visitors to my site from the USA.

 2. The United Kingdom


 The United Kingdom is at no.2 behind the USA at 6,079 views. My clustrmap shows “Southwark” (perhaps the location of the internet service provider rather than the location of actual readers) as the top area for views to my site in the UK. 

 3. India


 3rd is the second largest country in the world and possibly the country with more English-speakers than any other, India, with 1,901 views. Out of those my map shows that Maharashtra leads the way with 404 views. Maharashatra is the state which is home to India’s commcercial centre, Mumbai.


 4. Canada


 No 4 is Canada, with 1,717 views and the state of Ontario leading the way with 854 views. 

5. Australia


 Australia is at no.5 with 1,261 views and Victoria ranks first with 441 views. 

 6. The Netherlands

The Netherlands has 956 views with 214 views from Noord Holland in first place. After the first five states, the US, UK, India, Canada and Australia, the Netherlands is the first country which does not have English as an official language as India has English as an official language and probably more people can speak English (to varying degrees) in India than even the US.

 7. Italy


 No. 7 and the first major country where English is not spoken widely is Italy, as even the Netherlands (Holland) has English spoken widely through out the country and the Dutch are historically, racially and lingusistically related to the English. The English made a Dutchman, William of Orange, their King a few centuries ago and Dutch is the closest major language to English . The Italian province of Lombardy is in first place in terms of Italian visitors with 167 views out of 747 Italian views. 

 8. Germany


 Germany has 734 views and the area with my most German visitors is the “Lander” (state) of North-Rhine Westphalia the largest state in Germany in terms of population.

 9. Brazil


After Italy, Brazil is the second country in my top ten where English is not widely spoken (English is spoken very well by nearly every educated German) and has 680 views with 242 of them from Sao Paulo.

If I have done it once, I can do it again and I intend to repeat it. However I don’t plan to repeat it once but twenty times so that I will get a million views to my blog (presently on this url ultimately to be transferred to http://jewelleryica.com). Target; 1 million views. Can I do it? Yes, I can. I have the capability and it is impossible providing I work hard and blog consistently and produce quality. 50,000 views is 20 times of 2,500 views and I reached 2,500 views 7 months after I first started blogging. Since that time I have duplicated this 2,500 views 2o times over and I can repeat the same process with my new amount of 50,000 views. By the way here is my proof that I have indeed achieved over 50,000 views on my blog:
