2012 Officer Club Recap

Each new year several media outlets take time to revisit the previous year sharing the good the bad and the ugly. During the final few months of 2012 I considered the idea of creating a year in review editorial or even a type of awards for the site.

We are 100% advertising and sponsor free, and expect to remain that way as long as we can continue to!
