2008 proved to be a good year for MadSilence. December was our busiest month ever with 19,100 views. The month of December also provided our busiest week (5,700 views) and busiest day (968 views) since MadSilence was established in March 2007. Not sure why, perhaps the long tail?
Thanks to all our visitors, viewers and MadFriends.
