First new post of the year is another review post. A review of all the fun, little stats the blog has accumulated over the year. Since most bloggers like to keep their stats behind lock and key, I thought what better way to buck the trend than to let you know what amazing readers you are out there.
The Blog Health-O-Meter
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:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
The average container ship can carry about 4,500 containers. This blog was viewed over 16,000 times in 2010. If each view were a shipping container, your blog would have filled about 4 fully loaded ships*. When compared to 2009 totals, that’s 81% increase in readership. So either I’m getting better at writing this blog, writing about more interesting things, or it’s just pity reading? Maybe it’s a combination of all them. :-D
In 2010, there were 22 new posts and 71 pictures uploaded. That’s about 1 pictures per week (and a lot of iStockPhoto credits).
The busiest month of the year was January, with over 3,000 views. The most popular post that was Terminal Wave: The Google Wave Failure.
*Thanks to WordPress Staff for the container ship reference
