2010 in review

January 2, 2011

As is obvious from the stats below, I neglected this blog in 2010, as I concentrated on my thesis and my family.  This is likely to continue into 2011, as I work on completing the thesis – hopefully by May. Blogging is not completely forgotten however, I’m giving some thought to the future of this blog, and the possibility of a new one. Once the thesis is submitted I will most likely be back in some form. I hope to see you on the other side!


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:

Healthy blog!
