2010: Year in Review

A belated Happy New Year to all!  I apologize for not having updated the blog since before the winter holidays.  There has been some Padilla-related news but nothing significant that would have required an immediate post.  However, I hope to catch up on some old Padilla-related news in the following few posts.  In the meantime, I have taken the liberty of posting to the blog a year-end summary that I had received from WordPress on the activity and web traffic for the Invisible Man in 2010.  Thank you all for your past and I hope continued interest in the Invisible Man.


The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health: Healthy blog! The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads This blog is on fire!.
