As we wrap up this last day of 2012, we thought we’d take a look back at what you guys thought were our most interesting blog posts from the last year. We’re also getting ready to announce some really exciting totals from the year, including how many thousands of pounds of trash you helped us clean up from all across San Diego – but we’re going to make you wait a few more days for those 🙂
