Living in fast-times

We all know (and feel) we’re living in time that’s going fast, and even faster every single day.

I made no surprise in platform I chose, WordPress, simple and real choice. I started blogging in July and stats are impressive to me. Continue reading My blog in 2011, some numbers and facts
