And Another Fantabulous Year Came to an End ...

Another year came to an end yesterday. And in fact an Entire Decade. Before I start my ramblings on the year(decade) that went by, Let me get the annual results out.

Started the year with 17K figure and with a whopping 21K pageloads, (a total that surpasses the total pageloads of all the years before), the figure now reads close to 38825. There were personal peaks (no pun intended. :P) in April, May and December.

August was a lull because I was in India during that time and unfortunately not blogging.

Below stats show the MoM Results of the year gone by. Previous Year

Quarter 4 has been the best in terms of many factors.
