2010 in review (WordPress as guest blogger)

The folks at WordPress were nice enough to actually write a blog for The Gay Groom this week.  According to their Blog-Health-o-Meter™ (yes, it’s actually trade marked) I’m ‘fresher than ever’!

I haven’t been called ‘fresh’ in some time.

According to WordPress,  my blog has been viewed over 12,000 times (or as they like to put it, 29 full 747s) this year – which isn’t bad since I took the year off from writing – bringing my total views to over 15,000 since starting in July 2009.

My most popular blog Me and Björn Borg – A Love Story, was actually first published in a small literary journal back in 2009 and I’ll do my best to post some of my other published fiction as well over 2011.

But this blog is already taking up more time than it deserves…

Take it away, guys!
