The following was the 2010 report card & stat report I received from the good folks at WordPress.com. Interesting, to say the least but they may just be blowing a little wind up my skirt. Regardless, I’ve enjoyed the format and being able to write as a free-agent outside the context of the Hobbes list and other forums.
I’d also be remiss if I didn’t thank the folks who visit my blog. After all, if there weren’t any indications that folks found something of value here — entertainment or otherwise — I’d have bagged it in a while a go. And, while I don’t always respond to every kind comment I receive, please know that I read them all and am humbled: Thanks, hopefully it goes without saying…
So, here’s what WordPress had to say.
