Chinwag with Mike Laverick (@Mike_Laverick)

I was honored recently by being invited by Mike Laverick to be a guest on his Chinwag. Now, I knew what *the* Chinwag was, but I honestly didn’t know *what* a chinwag was. I had to look it up. It’s basically a chat – makes sense, right? You can find it on Mike’s blog, here. Our chat is below.

I’d like to thank Mike wholeheartedly for thinking of me and giving me the “publicity” that comes with being a guest on his Chinwag. It was truly an honor to “meet” him, as virtual as it was. I look forward to meeting him in person one day.

2011 in review

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

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.
