Posted by Michael in News.

Hard to believe this site started as a joke by Retired Geezer over six years ago when WordPress was brand new.

Click on the graphic below and scroll down for a full report, which just might mention YOU.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 300,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 5 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Shouldn’t there be an Award of some kind?

2. Retired Geezer - December 30, 2012

OK, seriously, I’ve met some really neat friends here, some even face to face.

Thanks to all our excellent Commenters but most of all Michael, who holds it all together. (and pays the bill).

I am mentioned in the annual report! It is like I am a board member or something.

**Struts around self-importantly.**

How the fuck did Laura wind up the top two commenters?

oh, email change.

Plus, they don’t count me.

They also don’t count my hits. It’s like they think I would stoop so low as to rig the numbers.

Seems kinduv weird that my name made the cut. I’ve spammed a few old threads like a manic crack-head, but I mostly just lurk from time to time. Still, unearned credit is the best kind. So, Michael: you’re welcome.
