So, last week I posed you people a challenge. And you raaaaaallied. Boy, did you ever rally. Did someone take my advice and set up a drinking bird to keep clicking refresh? Because that person gets a special Manuscripts Burn prize if he/she steps forward.
Anyway, I know you've been sitting on pins and needles for the last seven days wondering how it went, so I won't keep you in suspense any longer. WE DID IT! December 2011 was Manuscripts Burns's biggest month EVER*. Take a look at the final chart:
With, uh, oh, I'm not a big fan of numbers, let's say, twenty million more hits than June 2011, December was the most popular month for Manuscripts Burns of all time*. OF ALL TIME*! In case you're only used to looking at charts like this and you're not sure whether I'm snowballing you or not, take a look at this revised chart (red line added by the author):
So thanks to all of you. And a special Happy New Year! May this one be full of all the blessings that shitty 2011 wasn't.
* Except for massive amounts of missing data including the entire year of 2010, seemingly. Gooooooooo, Blogger Stats Engine! No, really. Fucking go.
