All Times Local 3:00 AM – Kansas City – Wake up, brew/consume coffee, charge phone 3:30 AM – Kansas City […]

December Site Statistics

Just a quick update with some site statistics. My site officially launched on December 6, 2010. As of December 31, 2010, my site had 1331 visitors from 76 different countries/territories according to the delightful Google Analytics.
