Happy New Year from Nicole Kidman and me!
Wow, Blog Guy, another year down the toilet. And what a goofy year it was.
I’ll say! I was talking about that with my blog staff at our holiday party, which as you can see was quite a glamorous affair…
What do all those people on your staff do anyway, Blog Guy?
Lots of stuff. They scour the world for odd pictures and video and stories for me. I mean, what did you think, that junk just comes to me on some machine?
As a result of their great teamwork, in 2009 this blog got more page views than ANY OTHER Reuters blog! And we have dozens of popular blogs, written by some really smart people like Felix Salmon and James Pethokoukis.
Salmon? Pethokoukis? You just made up those names, right?
Maybe, but the part about me getting the most page views is true. And a Facebook Blog Network with more than 5,000 members, too.
Blog Guy, I don’t believe that’s your actual staff in this photo. I happen to recognize Nicole Kidman….
What, you know Nicky, my photo editor? Small world. I guess she has a life outside the office, too, and good for her! Happy New Year, gang! Be on time Monday morning…
