When I started this blog I had no idea what direction it would take. I only knew that I needed to have one to move forward in the crafting industry. I had been putting it off for quite a while. Unity Stamp Company, one of the companies I worked with required its Design Team to post weekly projects. So they were the tipping point of my indecisiveness. For that I thank them. My first year with them was really great and the second was okay and then we parted ways but I kept on blogging. I actually began to enjoy what I was doing and not caring if anyone actually read my blog but blogging for me. This morning when I started to write my post the WordPress Helper Monkey greeted me. I thought it was really interesting so I wanted to share it with any of you who actually read my blog and not look simply at the pictures. The stats might not be spectacular compared to some but for me I am amazed as I never thought anyone really read what I posted. So below is my year in review. Enjoy, I know I did.
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
