2011 in review

Happy New Year everyone. Here’s hoping 2012’s a good one for you and yours.

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,800 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

2010 in a Nutshell

A new feature from WordPress this year is a stats review of how Sign of the Times did in 2010, which I thought I’d share with you until normal service resumes on Friday:

Normal Service Will be Resumed ASAP

Last Friday (16th Oct) my PC screen decided to give up the ghost. My husband has rigged up the spare laptop (a very old one), so I can at least still talk to you, but it’s not set up to access my photographs 😦

Which means I’m a bit stuffed as far as a photography blog is concerned. Rest assured I’ll be back ASAP. I have got a post set up for next Sunday at the very least!

In the meantime, I’ll be endeavouring to keep things going over at Veg Plotting.
