Happy New Year from WordPress.com!
Each rocket represents a post published on this blog in 2012. And because we like to share, we made the fireworks available as a jQuery plugin on GitHub.
Some browsers are better suited for this kind of animation. In our tests, Safari and Chrome worked best. Your overall score is not known (details).
We made beautiful, animated fireworks to celebrate your blogging! Unfortunately this browser lacks the capability. We made a slide show to fill in but we hope you will come back to this page with an HTML5 browser. In our tests, Safari or Chrome worked best.
To kick off the new year, we’d like to share with you data on Dr. Chi Yan Lam’s activity in 2012. You may start scrolling!
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.
In 2012, there were 20 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 179 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 171 MB. That's about 3 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was August 31st with 1,353 views. The most popular post that day was What is Queen's Tricolour Spirit? [updated].
