Just to be clear, cards, NOT notes.
Since you, or I, create multiple cards with each note to have several views on each note/exercise it’s not equal to new words. I have up to 7 views on each note I have in my deck.
So it’s a lot of repetition, which I find I really need for this language other than say spanish or even english for that matter
I spend roughly one hour a day with Anki in about 60% of the year. The rest being influenced by my family.
I’d also like to say that there’s times when I feel overwhelmed, then I stop adding new cards until I feel comfortable again and as soon as it becomes boring I 加油 a bit.
Edit: Not finished for today but I thought I share part of my statistics for the last year including today. Well, it’s all german but you should have the same in your language to “translate” it.
This should give you an idea about the difference between my target and my actual performance of my Mandarin deck.
