2010 in review

January 2, 2011 at 11:00 am 3 comments

Just when I thought about beating myself up over my spotty blog performance for 2010, the stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com sent me a high level summary of my overall blog health. If mine is a “Wow,” how do they rate the ones that post every week…or every day? Hmmm…methinks that WordPress wants to keep bloggers coming back for more. (And upgrading to the paid features.)

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Here’s What Else WordPress Had to Say

Featured imageA Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2010. That’s about 4 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 29 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 57 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 27mb. That’s about 1 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was July 20th with 35 views. The most popular post that day was Chocolate Dogs and Cakes.

The top referring sites in 2010 were healthfitnesstherapy.com, ravelry.com, twitter.com, android-vs-ipad.co.cc, and WordPress Dashboard.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for yarn bowls, yarn bowl pottery, dandelion dye, yarn bowl, and julie knowles pottery.

Oh, dear WordPress! You have exonerated my mediocre blogging record for 2010 and given me cause to hope for happy, fruitful blogging in 2011. What would I do without you? :-p

    We’re lucky. Not all blogs received the 2010 stat reports. You inspired me to share mine for one of my blogs. It’s nice to have the overview to fuel us on to another great year of blog posts! Happy New Year and best wishes!

    I was just catching up with you and this post made me chuckle. Thank you for that!

      Thanks dolcebeada! If I get a “wow” this year, I’ll KNOW it’s rigged.
