2012 in review

I’d like to thank all my visitors from around the world. I am tickled to know that someone out there in Suriname, and even Azerbaijan is interested to see what I have to say.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 16,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 4 Film Festivals
