The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 1,400,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 60 days for that many people to see it.

Facebook has a new feature for its users. It’s called the Year in Review, and it features your Top 20 Moments from some algorithm Facebook generates from your profile. You may have seen it, or not have it yet, as it seems to be a gradual rollout. So look for it if you have not!
Just go to your profile. On the right hand side of where your wall starts, there should be a “2012” graphic and link to click on to see your top moments from 2012. A whole page is dedicated to it!
When the Saints Go Marching In is an American gospel tune that is very popular and been interpreted in many genres and by many artists. If you know the song, quickly think what’s the best version you’ve ever heard. If it isn’t the one done by Louis Armstrong and Danny Kaye like the title of this post, have a listen in the video below and tell me you’ve heard a better version.
No. Seriously. Do tell me in the comments at the bottom if you like another version better. I’d love to hear it. Whether I agree or not isn’t the point, really. I want to hear all the variations of that tune. But right now, this one is far above the rest in my opinion, and I am posting it to share it with you in case you haven’t heard it.
A popular expression used in English is “one in a million”. It can be used to describe a lot of things, from events to phenomena to people, for their rarity. However, with the world population at 7 billion these days, if describing people, it’s no longer that much of a compliment.
I had the chance to attend and be part of the photography team for the NSCAD Intermediate Fashion Show 2011, Ninety Nine Days In on the evening of December 14, 2011. The photos I took appear below, posted with permission. Just click on the thumbnail to get a larger view. Click on the Permalink icon in the slide show to get it full sized.
My favourite, for sure, are the set of 4 dresses at the end by Jennie Bijou’s Effervescence collection. Well made, beautifully designed, themed, natural as its inspiration, Bravo!
