The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for artforarachnoiditis.org. Check it out to see how we’ve been doing!

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,900 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
