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

Here’s an excerpt:

My review of this interesting, and very competitively priced service is online at 4sysops, read it here. If you like automation but don’t like to write scripts or code, it might just be the answer. There’s a free community edition that is a great place to get started.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.
