2013 in review

January 6, 2014

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 25 trips to carry that many people.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 1,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 3 years to get that many views.

Update: The Tubing Book

July 15, 2012
Seaglass Stopper (Open)

I’ve had the ebook version of “How To Bend Tubing” out for about a year now (really?) and thought it was about time I produced a print version. This is in hand, and will be announced shortly, but as I haven’t blogged for a while I thought I’d mention it.

The ebook will be going up on Smashwords soon too, so those of you with Nooks and Kobos and Apple devices will be able to download it without selling your soul to Amazon. But don’t let me stop you if that’s your thang…
