In 2010, there were 13 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 25 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 3mb. That’s about 2 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was February 26th with 47 views. The most popular post that day was En-taaaa!.

Now, the next step’s a little tricky

Well, it’s always been the intention to keep this blog updated at the very least a couple of times a week. But, the best laid plans of mice and men…..

It’s also been my intention all along to have every post header be a line from The Great Escape (of course) to tie in with the blog name, but I’m changing my mind on that idea (after this post, that is) so it doesn’t limit my topics. Sigh….

Oh yeah, finally updated the About page also if anyone’s interested.
