I got an email from WordPress today, and they shared some summaries of how my blog is doing :)  WordPress is the platform on which Making All Things New operates.  The data below sets the stage for an exciting start to the New Year. Thanks Everyone!

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!
