2010 Blog Stats in review

January 4, 2011

Got this interesting 2010 Blog Stats Review post from WordPress, with links to my most popular pages and the most popular referring searches and sites (Wow, Barb at Creative Barbwire, were those hits mostly from you or from your readers?), so I thought I’d share the dirty details with you all…  Anyway, enjoy.  🙂

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!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 9,400 times in 2010. That’s about 23 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 283 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 312 posts. There were 7 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 5mb.

The busiest day of the year was July 21st with 101 views. The most popular post that day was A Steampunk Society.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, mail.yahoo.com, google.com, Google Reader, and creativebarbwire.wordpress.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for settlers of catan, the undiscovered author, stephen watkins, d&d, and profound thought of the day.

    WOW, you got almost 10k hits!!! 😮 That’s crazy talk yo! Congratulations!!!

      Yeah, thanks! But things have slowed down a lot since the high, heady days in July. And I expect they’ll stay that way until I have a little more time to blog regularly like back when I was able to do a post-a-day – so blog-wise the first half of 2011, at least, will be slower. That’s not counting any cool things that pop up that could be traffic-drivers. Those happen occassionally, but you can’t predict them.

        I hear ya. July was H.O.H.’s heyday, too.

        Mm, juicy traffic-drivers. More pretzels. 🙂

        Yeah, those were days when I was blogging a little more regularly and also spending more time on other people’s blogs. I had to scale back my participation on other blogs, and then I had to scale back here too, and both moves resulted in some traffic decline here. That’s okay though – because I started from nothing, and I know I can build it back up again if I ever get enough time.

    I like the off-the-cuff cool style they use in creating the report.

      Although, I think it reads better as an e-mail to the author than it does as a blog post…
