The year 2016 was yet another awesome year for me. Not only from a professional point of view but also from a personal one. Maybe you have noticed that I wasn’t blogging a lot since August this year :). Well, this has one awesome reason. I became a dad in August and since then I spend my free time mostly with my wife and my son to enjoy every minute. However, from a blogging and professional point of view the year was great, too. This year my book Hands-On Mobile App Testing has been translated into german, which is really really great. I published a new eBook about Smartwatch App Testing on leanpub and I gave my first keynote at a conference.
If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you know that I love to share insights of this blog and to provide a blog review of the past year (see 2015 here). Since a couple of month I also share on a monthly basis numbers of my blog, like in this tweet:
Almost 5000 page views and more than 2500 unique visitors on my blog https://t.co/R9Dpxmjyen in October. Thanks for reading. #servicetweet
