My first anniversary on WordPress

Internet cartoon

One year ago, on 8 December 2011, I made my first blog posts on WordPress.

I had to take away my blog in a hurry from Blogsome, which finished.

On my first day on WordPress, I had eight visits.

That is a bit more now.

Here is a list of the most popular posts ever since I changed to WordPress (those seen more than eighty times).
