Celebrating Five Years of CSC: Just the Stats

1,723 days and 5,701 posts later, Canal Street Chronicles is still going strong.

Below are five years worth of hardcore Saints blogging facts and figures, from April 8th, 2008 to April 7th, 2013, that I think you'll find interesting. Personally, some of these numbers blow me away.
