What better way to end 2015 than to share this cool year end report prepared by Word Press. I would like to take this oppotunity to thank all of you  who took time to read my blog. I wish all of you a great blogging start of the year in 2016!

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 720 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 12 trips to carry that many people.

Criterion Banner FINAL

It is hard to believe how much time has passed since we announced The Criterion Blogathon. I know that quite a few are typing with fury as they finalize their submissions, and there have been a few early entries (thank you!).

This is going to be a huge event. How huge? Just take a look at the full schedule posted at Speakeasy.
