I'd been looking through some stats from last year and I have been very pleased with how my blog has evolved and how interest has grown.  After, at first not really knowing how it was going to turn out or what I would blog about, its turned itself around and ended up being more of help or information page, with reviews and my views on various applications, programs, and subjects.
