Ugh, I can’t get the most active commenters for the year, only for some undetermined amount of time. :( These were the 5 most active commenters on that unspecified amount of time:
- 1 chacha1 56 comments
- 2 Leah 41 comments
- 3 Debbie M 34 comments
- 4 Rosa 33 comments
- 5 Revanche @ A Gai Shan Life 26 comments
Also if I search comments, chacha has 16 pages worth in 2016 and Leah has 10 pages (Debbie M has 7). I’m too lazy to count them all up, but that’s enough to make me confident that chacha is this year’s winner.
Yay Chacha! This means you get to tell us where to donate our most recent month’s proceeds from amazon sales. Either tell us and link up in the comments (if you want more exposure) or email us at grumpyrumblings at gmail if you want it to be more secret-like.
Any blog commentary or highlights from the grumpy gallery? Also, congratulate Chacha in the comments. :)
