2021 | Year in Review

It’s 2022! Which would sound super futuristic if it weren’t for the fact that it already appears to be shaping up as a repeat of the last two years (and pre-1989 if you’re Russia…).

There is newness on the horizon though, as 2022 will bring us the most corrupt Football World Cup in history, a boycotted (kinda) Winter Olympics in China, the James Webb telescope will unfurl to look back in time, and will COVID finally be vanquished?

We’ve got some news too, but we’ll get to that in a bit. Before that, here’s a look at the year that was 2021!

Stats

2021 saw a little less than a million of you join us here at The Lego Car Blog. The U.S – despite our regular mockery of its former President, guns, and cars – was once more the most prolific country by views, with more of you joining us from America than the next five countries combined.

At the other end of the scale there are just four countries with a single visitor, all of which are the remotest of islands. If you are the one person from either the Cook Islands, St. Helena, Christmas Island, or the Cocos Islands, we’re delighted to have you with us!

Google was the top referrer, followed by Pinterest and Facebook, and our most viewed individual pages were the Review Library, The Rise and Fall of MOCpages, and the Directory.

447 posts were published during 2021 (receiving 281 comments and 1,115 likes), several new reviews were added to the Review Library (some of which were written by you), one further builder was inducted into the Master MOCers Hall of Fame, and we even helped to develop a brand new lighting kit suitable for vehicle creations.

We also celebrated our 10th Anniversary! By which we mean, we forgot. But we do have something planned in 2022!

Advertisements

2021 was our first full year of allowing proper advertising to appear. We hope they haven’t been too annoying, and even that a few have been interesting enough to click on.

Most are controlled by Google (what isn’t!), and display in the right sidebar, between posts, at the header and/or footer, and will sometimes appear full screen during page navigation. The revenue generated from these is given to those who need it more than we do, so your views and clicks really do make a difference.

What’s Coming Up?

2022 will see more of the best vehicle creations, occasional set reviews, Master MOCers and LEGO news published here at The Lego Car Blog and via our Facebook page.

You can also let us know your suggestions via the Contact and the Submission Suggestions pages. Take a look at our Submission Guidelines to know what we look for!

And finally, 2022 will bring the next building competition! Stay tuned for a hint which will be appearing right here very soon…

Thank you for joining us in 2021, and we wish you all a very happy New Year
