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 2,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.
If you’re a TL;DR-type person (or if that rather uninspiring comparison to Mt. Everest didn’t prompt you to click the link): people liked my post on my dearly-departed MoMo; for some reason, people find my blog by searching shishi odoshi and legos; and most of my readers come from the U.S., but oddly enough, I apparently have readers in the Philippines.
Hope to see more of all of you in 2013!
Blogging will be a little light the next few days while I’m enjoying some much-needed sister time in Yakima, WA. But I had this outfit idea kicking around in my Polyvore set for a while and figured I’d share it. Also – those are my new glasses! Mine are blue, if you click on the link and it brings you to the black ones. I’m very excited about them.
Oh, my goodness, the whiplash Instagram has given me this week:

Meanwhile, Flickr, the place where I’ve stored all my photos for the last four years (in addition to my computer, of course), has a new iPhone app that is really pretty cool: GigaOM, Flickr belatedly joins the mobile photo wars with new iPhone app.
