I bought a bike in March and pedaled about Prince William County, Virginia, taking pictures and amusing myself. In May, I saw my buddy Joel had a blog on his kayaking hobby. That looked interesting, so I decided to give it a try myself. The result is this compendium of half-baked thoughts, damage/injury reports, and other trivia related to my cycling hobby.
It’s been a blast. Really, it has!
Lord only knows what I am doing right and wrong with this site. The number of visits continues to grow, so I like to think it is amusing to somebody out there. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that I greatly appreciate your continued interest and the thoughtful comments you post here. For those of you who have blogs of your own, know that they are a great resource for me and are also quite entertaining! For those of you who have yet to click on the blogs in my blog roll, I encourage you to do so – I think you’ll be glad you did. In no particular order, here are some stats you may find to be not entirely boring:

Readership By Month: Visits have been pleasantly increasing each month, with a large increase in November. Lesson Learned: if you want to increase readership, write about Canberra!
Where You Live: In October, I happened across the Clustrmaps utility which I now keep in the top right corner of the blog. It’s been quite interesting to see where folks are checking in from. The variety was quite a surprise to me! The English-speaking countries were somewhat expected, but I never would have guessed I would have visitors from such exotic locales as Taiwan, Peru, and Pakistan. Africa, I must inform you that you are not pulling your weight. Morocco and Egypt are keeping you from complete embarrassment. Russia continues to disappoint.
And that sums up my gala three-part 2010 Year-In-Review. I believe I shall refer to this as “The Year I Began.” Hopefully, I will dub 2011, “The Year I Got Serious.” With any luck, 2012 will be known as “The Year I Went Crazy,” but lets take care of one year at a time!
