Teaser The WordPress Automaticians created a great annual report for each of us that gives an overview of our 2012 blog performance. The fireworks are quite impressive. I’m not sure the report takes into account the impact of my spambot audience. One of the places from which views were most referred seems to be a scumbot email address.

I really want a super-sonic laser-pingback that fires a shit storm at spammers.

I really want one of those super-sonic laser-pingbacks that fires a shit storm at spammers.

I put together this list to show what I spent the last year writing for actual human readers. It isn’t a comprehensive list. I mean, who’d want to hack through re-hash 217 posts? Nope, this is just a snippet to give you the most bang for your blog viewing buck. So, for those who have nothing better to do on this New Year’s Eve, here are the categories.

    Happy New Year Honie – how very organized of you to put this together! I noticed that a spambot is one of my top readers too – how flattering:)

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      I guess we can’t help it, we’re bot magnets. Happy New Year Arsifrtsy!

  2. Wow – after seeing this post, I have even more blog reading to catch up on! Great pictures! I wish you a wonderful new year!

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      Our wonderful new year is underway. Hope it measures up to our expectations!

  3. Wyrd Smythe says:

    “Why,… what big ears you have!” Have a wonderfully Happy New Year and a ridiculously enjoyable 2013!

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      All the better to hear you so I can jump out and yell, “Surprise!” Same to you Smythe!

  4. Carrie Rubin says:

    Great way to sum up your blog year. Happy New Year!

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      Happy New Year rightbackatcha!

  5. ah yes, I’ve just had a good old clear out as well and I don’t mean one caused by too many mince pie and sprout combos…..though that would be quite a spectacular fireman’s hose/shit storm. Nope, Sir Spamalot has been wielding his trusty (or should that be rusty?) sword, of mixed metaphors, random strings of words and incomprehensible sentences, and bombarding my spam filter with more Xmas tat than you can shake a highly flammable, made in China synthetic stocking at. It does however make the genuine article so much more appreciated 🙂

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      So very true. The genuine article is very much appreciated. The spam-a-lama-ding-dongs are just a damn nuisance, aren’t they? Here’s to 2013, may it be spam free.
      (fat chance) 🙂

Go Ahead, Make My Day!
