The Muse: 2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats techs prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog. I love the way they present the statistics.

Thanks for reading The Muse. I hope you’re enjoying the current timeline series on Bookbinding, Miniatures, Writing and Paper. Happy New Year, everyone. Here’s to a wonderful 2015.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,400 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

The paper was called T’sai Ko-Shi, meaning: “Distinguished T’sai’s Paper” – It’s a felted material formed on flat, porous molds from macerated vegetable fiber (probably bamboo). He is revered as the patron saint of modern papermaking (China)
