For the facts of 2013:
Blog of the year: Amazing Breast Gourd Plant (over 10,000!)
Countries most visiting (ranked): USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Russia, New Zealand, Latvia, India, Malaysia & Germany.
The reason for the expected drop is that the popularity of the blog of the year can surely not continue. I don't know why it went off the way it did but it must have been emailed around or posted at other sites. The stream of readers was unrelenting for that article.
There were problems with Blogger during the year when publishing an article became a nightmare. Despite that, the show went on and that didn't seem to affect visitors as you as existing blog articles were there to enjoy.

The thing is it is a commercial free blog, meaning that there are no advertisements, pop ups or requests for donations. It is all free to you all, the way the internet was designed to be. I hope it entertained you and return to browse around, have a laugh or reflection on something. It has been nice having you.
