Happy New Year from WordPress.com!
Each rocket represents a post published on this blog in 2012. And because we like to share, we made the fireworks available as a jQuery plugin on GitHub.

We made beautiful, animated fireworks to celebrate your blogging! Unfortunately this browser lacks the capability. We made a slide show to fill in but we hope you will come back to this page with an HTML5 browser. In our tests, Safari or Chrome worked best.
To kick off the new year, we’d like to share with you data on Normal Deviate’s activity in 2012. You may start scrolling!
