I was bored today so I started looking at the #WordPress tag on Instagram. What I found was people from all over world who were very happy to receive their 10th Anniversary shirts. I really love this so I thought I would share the photos I found.
P.S. I had no idea we supported Instagram embeds on WordPress.com until just a minute ago when I added an Instagram URL and an image appeared. Its a pretty neat feature.
I was watching House Hunters with my dad tonight and the guy who was buying the house was a food blogger and at the end of the episode they showed him working on a blog post and on his computer screen I recognized the WordPress.com quick post screen. It was so neat to see WP.com on TV even if for just a split second. I took a pic of it on my TV (which didn’t turn out too well).
I really like swag, its fun to wear or use something to support a brand. Over the past few months I’ve done a variety of swag related projects that I’ve really enjoyed. I was looking through my media library today and I can across my first custom swag like thing I ever had made.
You can see the the rest of my custom swag over here. Hopefully this is just the tip of the iceberg as I’m saving up to buy either a laser or a vinyl cutter/plotter.
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 3,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 6 years to get that many views.

Ever since I moved my personal site to WordPress.com and a subdomain, nickhamze.com has looked kinda lame so I took advantage of my day off today and put together a simple about.me style page that I think works better than what was previously there.
During our San Francisco meetup people talked a bit about their working environments so I thought I would post some pics of my office. I’m a little strange. I have an office that I go to from 11 (don’t judge me ) to 5 but I usually only spend a few hours of that working as I feel there is a benefit from some people working different hours from the rest of Happiness so I work the rest of my shift late at night from home. But during the day I’m here.
When my brother proposed getting a kinda large office I was against it as I didn’t see the point but it kinda grew on me. The strange part is while we had plans to get more people working and hanging out here it hasn’t panned out so I’m usually here by myself. So if any of my co-workers ever want to co-work in a cold, boring place please come and hang out with me in Sioux Falls.
The first thing you see when you walk in is my Mrs. Pacman machine. When I can save up a bit more money I need to get her a friend as she is quite lonely.
Next to that you have the lounge area where my little sister hangs out when she comes here to do her homework.
Across from the lounge is the boardroom where business is suppose to take place but is usually where we eat pizza.
There are three individual offices, one for me, one for my brother, and one for my dad. I’ll only show pics of mine as the rest aren’t as cool. Right away when you walk in the door you will see my audio setup. I definitely need some better speakers.
Next you have my desk, which is where I spend most of my time.
If you see me change my status to brb or biab in IRC and its during the day I likely had enough of tickets and decided to play some video games or watch tv here.
The dubstep sketch at the beginning of this episode was hilarious.
Last night when I couldn’t sleep I watched this movie and I really enjoyed it.
Another great TED video. One thing I learned from this video is that you cannot copyright a recipe.
Copyright law does not protect recipes that are mere listings of ingredients. Nor does it protect other mere listings of ingredients such as those found in formulas, compounds, or prescriptions.
Great video by Larry Lessig — who according to Wikipedia was born in South Dakota.
