Just got this notification. The 2012 in review general site stats.

This feels about right to me but there were a few surprises. Some posts catch me off guard and get some monster traffic (Like the ELF post mentioned below) because they get linked to on very busy message boards. The more the merrier! But while I’m not complaining, I do wonder how much FB and Pinterest have skewed these numbers.

So thanks very much for every one of the 1.1 million visits!

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

Here’s an excerpt:

Crunchy numbers

Some of the older posts just continue to get picked up and are so unique or cool that they don’t surprise me at all. But while that Versys IS a nice bike I still scratch my head at it’s staying power. no complaints though. Stop by any time and feel free to link away!
