About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 460,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 8 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

The plan for 2012
Here is a brief outline of what I will be doing in 2012.
- Keep blogging
- Case comments on a regularly basis.
- Articles and legal analysis
- Moving to wordpress.org provided someone help me with online payment. The problem with me is not the cost, rather the mode of payment.
