2012 in review: Manifest Destiny WordPress stats

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,200 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 7 years to get that many views.

Manifest Destiny has now ended

We want to thank everyone who was able to be part of this project. From our Kickstarter backers who supported us from the beginning, to all the amazing performers and musicians, and to everyone who was able to come see any of the shows in person. This is the most ambitious art project we have ever tackled, and we are extremely pleased with how it all came out. We will be updating this site in coming weeks with photos and videos of the many performances and the artwork itself. In the meantime, if you have any comments, feedbacks, are interested in acquiring any of the art or prints for your collection, please drop us a line in the comments section below or to renee-at-bloodandspit-dot-com!
