Liking the Likes

The number of likes for the NaHaiWriMo page on Facebook, at the end of 1 February 2018, stood at 2,791. This was an increase of 291, or 11.64 percent, from exactly 2,500 likes on 1 February 2017. Below is a rundown of previous statistics (I don’t have a record of milestones before the following). Of course, likes dont always translate into ongoing participation, but our participation seems to be growing steadily too, and surges every February. More importantly, regardless of growth, NaHaiWriMo is a supportive community for sharing and learning haiku. Nevertheless, it’s nice to see that our growth is slightly greater in the last year compared with the previous year, and definitely steady over the last few years. In case you need to know.
