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 9,200 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 15 years to get that many views.

Heard of these Riot Girrrls?
Sex and Fessenjoon girls “push boundaries” by their “shamelessly sharing stories/escapades.” And I’ve had the honor of sitting down with them to share my own shameless story of being a crazy Iranian-American woman:
I am so proud of them for questioning the assumptions and breaking the taboos of our lives, community and diaspora. But above that, I’m so proud of them for first, loving their heritage and culture for what it is, so seriously that they care to write about it, but not serious enough to not to be able to laugh at it. These Girrrls get it!
Read my Ed-Op piece for Aslan Media about why I think Iran will not have a similar Arab Spring anytime soon here.
UMass Amherst Journalism Program where I spent four amazing years of my life has honored me. I wish I was more achieved and more worthy of their shout out.
Miss them all and thank you for for making me the journalist that I am today ♥
Read my second article for National Iranian American Council (NIAC) about two short films made by Cultures of Resistance, an organization using films, music and media to bridge the gaps between nations and promote peace and global justice. Make sure to check out their other works as well.
