“verzin een onderschrift bij deze #fail :”
(what do you think should be the description to this failed packaging? The playmobil depicts a typical Dutch holiday, Sinterklaas, but the title suggests it is about Christmas…)

“ja, kijk maar! Lize Korpershoek doet het met Matthijs”
(Our friend Lize was on the most popular Dutch TV show talking about the web phenomenon Kakhiel, for whom we’re launching a Tag The Love platform in the beginning of 2013. On Twitter everybody was talking about Lize and het alleged secret relationship with the host, Matthijs van Nieuwkerk. This wink of course is the hard proof of that and went viral instantly. :) )

The people you mention the most are your best friends right? Let’s see what that brings me:

I’ve mentioned Claqueur 103 times in my postings. Here, she’s on TV:

Boris comes in second. He normally doesn’t like second place, but I think in this case it is not that bad. I mentioned him 34 times. I like this posting: The Internet Serial Entrepreneur running around in number 404.

Bram is my 3rd BFF I mentioned him 26 times. Here we are testing the webcam uploads, he still had hair at that time.

Please tell us the stories behind your year in the comments, that is inspiring for all of us and lets you reminisce 2012.

We wish you a great 2013!
