The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 69,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Dinosaurs

I’m onto a new journal. This one has lined paper. I have been a writer since the age of seven. There was a Chinese teacher of mine in grade two who wrote “outstanding” in red pen on my class assignment about dinosaurs. She wanted to get it published.

After her morning run, she spends a nice relaxing day at the spa – complete with manicure, pedicure and other pampering. She fashionably exits the establishment in her brand new designer shoes and jacket, looking like a model fit for the runway. Rested, and with more confidence than ever, she finally makes her way home to a meal fit for a queen. No, it’s not her birthday, anniversary, or wedding, it’s just another Saturday for Fluffy – the family dog. Read the rest of this entry »

By Rachel Muenz

It’s a common story: An author gets published at a very young age. For a few weeks, she is the centre of media attention, people rave about her talent, her book may sell well, but then she vanishes from the literary world, never to be heard of again.
