My 2010 year in blogging — thanks to WordPress

Wow — thirteen 747’s — and a lucky number considering my (also here well documented) various flight anxieties.  Thanks, Automattic and all the cool WordPress folks, for this supercool summary!  Though I think you’re mighty generous with the praise, and the post highlights are mostly not my best loved, it’s OK: happily accepted. It’s still my birthday month after all …

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!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Goodbye Blogger?

I was one of the original Blogger bloggers.  My Blogger blog is so old that it doesn’t even work properly anymore and some huge long list of complicated post-Google things still has to be done to convert it — especially the archive links.  But I do have one of those nifty Google / Blogger sweatshirts to show for the fact that I “bought” a Blogger blog way back when it cost money – and glad I was. Ev – did you singlehandedly light the fuse of Web 2.0?

At any rate — I feel a little duplicitous to be kicking around in WordPress now.  Until merging/purging/converting/whatever, so be it. I doubt it’s really goodbye Blogger, for now.
