ThePaperPhantom Turns 1!

Today is my blog’s first birthday!  I don’t have anything special planned (last time I did a give away I paid almost $60 in shipping–ouch!) but I recently got my first year’s blog stats, so I thought I’d share them with you.  It looks like I did pretty well for my first year.

In 2010, there were 128 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 12 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 8mb. That’s about a picture per month.

The busiest day of the year was October 20th with 170 views. The most popular post that day was More Free Stuff.
