My blog visitors for 2012 – Olympic Stadium comparison!

According to the WordPress annual report the London Olympic Stadium is 53 meters high. My blog had about 750 visitors in 2012 so  if every visitor represented a metre, this blog would be 14 times taller than the Olympic Stadium.  Thank you to all my followers for achieving this.
