My 2008

My 2008 was kind of the year of the blogs where I’ve had fun writing on several blogs, splitted them, created new ones and enjoying testing themes and plugins. Sometimes I enjoyed modifiying the blogs more than writing, it could go weeks between the posts but I worked on them every day. 🙂

I joined many networking systems in January and instantly discovered great blogs that I still visit, I’ve met a lot of nice people and I have learned about several fun systems. Blogging became my favourite hobby.

A lot of changes occured on my blog in 2008, 76% of the visitors use Firefox, 48% of the visitors are from USA, the most popular search term that lead users here was königsegg, boshendal and lidl.

I wish you a pleasant celebration of the new year!

    Great New Year to you too, Weird Oh.

    Maybe it’s the new year, but I’m feeling nostalgic. Can we get all of these schmoes to come to

      I had some problems finding your 125×125 from earlier so I used the small one. Have a link to your 125x? 😀
