May 15th, 2007 was the day we re-launched Marini Family: Blog. We had previously been hosting our own WordPress Blog when the server crashed. We tried to import the posts and we couldn’t recover them. So started our new WordPress.com hosted blog.
WordPress.com has been an incredible resource and in spite of some of it’s limitations, it has provided outstanding stability and speed. We will eventually host our own blog at some point, but it will always be a WordPress Blog.
As we did on our last birthday, here are some interesting statistics from the past year as well as an overall summary. Remember, these don’t include my own visits!
