This Year: In Wicked Cool Stats!


Evelyn and I started this blog in March 2011 after I called her and shouted into the phone:


Luckily, Ev didn’t think I was crazy. She agreed with me and we set out to become little journalists. Both of us writers, but not in this respect. Evelyn is an academic scholar and I am a poet. Between the two of us, we had to find our online voice.

But I think it’s working. Here’s the year summed up in numbers. I hope they tell you a little more about us and what we’re about.

2 Writers
  • Charish Halliburton
  • Evelyn Reynolds

4 hours spent on working on that little favicon
thing you see in your browser. Then I found out only 29% of readers can see it.

I spent $10 on the domain “” but didn’t  understand how to use it.
If someone out there can help us with this, please drop me a line

We have 61 salon members and 19,901 page views

    As Evelyn and I say goodbye to 2011 and hello to 2012,
