Happy New Year + Random Blog Stuff

January 5, 2009

Hey hey,

well, happy New Year to all my readers! Thanks for hanging around for the last couple of years (first on blogger.com and now, for the past 11 or so months, on wordpress.com).

I thought I’d start this year’s posting efforts with a most exciting* listing of statistics for the Amalgamation (as in, the blog you are reading right now).

*taking a highly subjective definition of “exciting,” I know!

I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the regular readers whose thoughtful and friendly comments have contributed here!
