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 Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 150,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 6 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 140 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 340 posts. There were 219 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 81mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was February 11th with 3,386 views. The most popular post that day was How to Describe an American–if You Aren’t (that was the day WordPress put me on their front page. What a day!)
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were wordpress.com, righthealth.com, stumbleupon.com, blogtopsites.com, and search.aol.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for michelle obama, spider bites, body language, mushrooms, and chimpanzee.
