The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.

The air on top of the mountain is much colder than that by the shore. Unsure of what lie ahead, I realize that I must find someone whom I can trust, somebody to help safeguard my secret. By now the Morshmen have figured out that the stone was removed from the village and without any doubt they would be on my scent. The Morshmen are horrid men that posses beast like qualities. They hunt like jackals and will stop at nothing when after prey. With little left to go on, I begin to venture further away from my home then I had ever imagined. How I miss my family and the home that I love. I will never again set my eyes upon either for I know now that my family is gone. All that I have left are my memories; and so today I begin an uncertain destiny.
I hope to keep you interested in Guardian of the Stone, therefore I am releasing another chapter.
Chapter 2 – Who Can I Trust
The mind has a way of playing tricks upon a person and for a single moment I am at peace. I wake today to the sun beating down upon my face and feel its warmth reflecting off my thick black hair and bask in the serenity of the moment. Sadly I must accept the truth, for I am alone and would give anything if I could once again embrace my family. Alas, that could never be; because King Mord and his Morshmen have destroyed all that was good in my life.
As any unknown writer seeking publication knows, we face insurmountable obstacles. First and foremost is getting anyone to take your work seriously and then of course there is trying to establish a following strong enough to get your name recognized. I have followed the so called protocol and even showed my respect to other writer by joining in discussions and leaving respectful comments on their Blog. Unfortunately the journey has led me down the same unfortunate path; not only has my Blog gone unnoticed but my search to reach out to those responsible for opening doors has all but closed. I must broaden my audience and tell my story to those who seek a new and exciting adventure. With the help of those of you who are still interested or even if you are vaguely intrigued, please tell a friend about “Guardian of the Stone”. Please pass along my story, and ask others to read my Blog from the beginning. Thus they can judge for themselves if my story is worth reading, and please above all things post! I hope that you become part of my world and welcome me into yours, Thank you…
