2011 in review

Since this blog was launched in November of 2010, it has logged more than 35,000 page views.  In 2011 alone, The Narthex had about 29,000 page views.

As a new year gets started, I wanted to thank everyone who has taken the time to read these posts.  I hope you find them interesting and I look forward to doing even more in 2012.  If you have any ideas for blog entries, please share them.  I'm always on the lookout for good stuff!

WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 29,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
