The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.

In addition to deciding whether or not to move my blog to WordPress, I have also decided to start a new blog. This new blog “Database Land” will be dedicated to databases, and anything related to them, which makes sense since it is my primary research area. Here is the address of the new blog:

There will also be a permanent link to the new blog on the side bar of this page. Happy reading!

Blogger vs. WordPress

For some unknown reason, I suddenly decided to give WordPress a try. However, I will not abandon my original blog on Blogger just yet. Until I decide which of them I will continue to use, I will be posting to both of them at the same time. So please feel free to visit either of them, and let me know in the comments if you think one of two services is particularly better than the other (based on personal experience).

So, after a few days with my photoblog (that I posted about earlier), I decided to try and post my pictures on Flickr. I won’t abandon my photoblog yet though. I’ll post each picture on both of them until I can decide which is better.

This is just a small announcement. I just launched my new photoblog Photo Blizzard (I think I have a thing with blizzards!) I’ll try to update it frequently with the pictures I take, so try to check every now and then.
