Happy New Year from WordPress.com!

About the fireworks

We made beautiful, animated fireworks to celebrate your blogging! Unfortunately this browser lacks the capability. We made a slide show to fill in but we hope you will come back to this page with an HTML5 browser. In our tests, Safari or Chrome worked best.

This report is private Make public

To kick off the new year, we’d like to share with you data on your blog’s activity in 2015. Start scrolling!

Crunchy numbers

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 38,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 14 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

There were 427 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 93 MB. That’s about a picture per day.

The busiest day of the year was August 10th with 222 views. The most popular post that day was If there is a Good Lord, may he bless and keep you, wonderful dog.
