Your Annual Report from WordPress.com
Your 2014 in blogging
Our stats helper monkeys have been busy putting together a personalized report detailing how your blog did in 2014!
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 48,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 18 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

- Pick EdITLib This Autumn!
- Questions About The School Of Tomorrow
