Zero to Hero Challenge.

It’s a new year and as part of a commitment to my art and blog, I’ve joined the Worpress Zero to Hero 30 days to a better blog challenge. The first post is an introduction. Or in my case, since this blog is almost three years old, a reintroduction.

My name is Chris. I live in Nashville, TN.  I have always been interested in art and am a huge fantasy and science fiction fan. I have combined both passions into my Fairy Photography and Toy Photography. In May 2007 I was named a Froudian Artist of the Month for my Fantasy site, Yoda archives is my toy photography site.
Yoda and Thor
Yoda archives started as an action figure photography site featuring, the never before revealed adventures of the Jedi Master, Yoda. As I the site progressed I expanded my subjects to include many toys  line and LEGO minifigures.  I regularly post pictures featuring  toys in a single panel comic.

2013 in review! Stats

I never got an email about my stats for this site, but I figured out how to find the report using the links from my other blog.

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.


The top referring sites in 2013 were:
