Normally I do a Monthly roundup so with the new year I think it’s appropriate to post an annual roundup though I’ll file it under the monthly roundup tag OK? If you’re new to MMW then you don’t know that this blog is less than a year old and my involvement really got started in June. So, to that end here are some of the traffic stats and top stories. Oh and these aren’t huge numbers but so what. All blogs have one undisputable thing in common… we all started with no traffic or readers whatsoever.

Things I didn’t do that I said I’d do.

Reasons why? My fault entirely, I’ll try harder to follow through better in 2008.
