Hello, everybody! I have just received a lovely gift from our hosting platform, WordPress.com, who have compiled an annual review of this website for me. Well over 8600 people from 79 countries visited this website in 2012, and I’m thrilled that my hard work at designing and maintaining this web space has been useful for so many people – Lauren Knifton.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 8,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 14 years to get that many views.
