2014 in review (WordPress Summary)

We love our readers, and we wanted to share with you just how special 2014 was for us. Thanks for your support and KEEP READING !!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Last year they were Fogging up the place, thanks to Machel Montano now everyone is feeling Carnival Tabanca (the term literally means love sick over carnival – pretty much missing carnival a lot)  thanks to Bunji Garlin, check out the song here .
