2010 in review! Look how lame I am!

2 Jan

I got this email summarizing my blog traffic in 2010. Although I knew a lot of people weren’t reading, I am farther than ever from realizing my not-real-dream of turning my blog into a book one day and living a life of leisure. Perhaps I should start writing about my clients more?

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

Healthy blog!

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 2,900 times in 2010. That’s about 7 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 96 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 250 posts. There were 28 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 31mb. That’s about 2 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was November 28th with 54 views. The most popular post that day was New video up.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were araineyday.blogspot.com, modernhomemodernbaby.com, alphainventions.com, webmail.earthlink.net, and netvibes.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for oblogatory, akanejones.wordpress.com, oblogatory wordpress, “broke my ankle”, and akanejones.wordpress.
