Four Things

Several topics floated around recently, but nothing I really wanted to write on at length — on the off-chance anyone was wondering: “Why hasn’t Wil blogged lately?”

Once More, Thank You All

Showing the days of the year on which I published blog entries   Despite this blog not being about you, the fact that you’re here makes it more interesting for me. According to statistics provided by JetPack, this blog was viewed nearly 9,000 times this year — nearly 10% of those on one day in[…]

What Be This Blog?
