The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:

I have never been very good at following instructions beyond a certain point. I’m good up to the point of getting something up and running – opening a software package, installing it in the right order and then getting the basics. But after that I tend to get lazy (in a creative sense, I hope). I just want to play with the buttons and menus in a random, playful way.
