Metadata Milestones

I have now officially been blogging for a year.  Originally I had planned to do this lengthy retrospective on my experiences blogging, the development of a blogging identity, and my plans for the future, but I ran out of time and it sounds like a lazy weekend job rather than something that I do during a hectic week. 

So for the time being I will put together some interesting metadata.image
