2014 in review

This year is now in review, stats and facts. Awards and mistakes, and of course New Year Resolutions.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 42 trips to carry that many people.

Fresh Perspectives

A New Year, a  new look. I’m in town scouting for a new theme for my blog for 2015, As you have probably noticed I have changed to a new theme. Your comments on the new theme is very much welcome in terms of navigation and post previews.

I’m still searching for my perfect theme (if there really is something like that 🙂 ), so I’m throwing this out there and see if any other ideas could come up.
As i run a Photoblog, a new theme that showcases my photos in wide screen will be super-appreciated and it should be free 🙂 .

Browsing through the wordpress theme store i realised i couldnt do this by myself as there are literally hundreds of themes and even then sorting through the select for photoblogs is hard. Any suggestions/comments would be most welcome.
