2010 Blogging in Review

Look what I found in my inbox — this nice Year In Review from the admins at WordPress. Pretty cool.

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy Blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Aw, shucks, Blog-Health-o-Meter!

Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2010. That’s about 29 full 747s. (But where do the extra 16 people sit?)

In 2010, there were 73 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 400 posts. There were 103 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 27mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was July 14th with 152 views. The most popular post that day was He ain’t heavy .

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were networkedblogs.comfacebook.com, holidailies.org, and inabottle.org. I’m so grateful to to Chip & Jette for hosting Holidailies year after year, and to Genie for creating Living Out Loud month after month.  Thanks!

Some visitors came searching, mostly for seth rogen, bee gees, james stewart, cleaning lady, and drinking water. Which shows that people came via image searches. Lesson here: give my photos interesting titles….oh, consider the possibilities.
