2010 in review

I got this email from WordPress (my blog host) and thought I’d share it with all my readers. Thanks everyone for making this blog such fun for me to come back to day after day!

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-Meterβ„’ reads Wow.

In 2010, there were 163 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 207 posts. There were 12 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 7mb. That’s about a picture per month.

The busiest day of the year was March 22nd with 90 views. The most popular post that day was When it Rains, it Pours….

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, ramblingsfromtheleft.wordpress.com, blogger.com, lydiasharp.blogspot.com, and alphainventions.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for christi corbett, never give up, punctuation changes everything, christy corbett, and christicorbett.wordpress.com.

  1. PK,

    The email came yesterday and was a total surprise. It contained a “publish to your blog” link so I figured why not?

    Plus, I’m loving the name stats helper monkey πŸ™‚


  2. Laura,

    I thought that was a very visual way to state a boring thing (a number) too πŸ™‚

    Thanks for stopping by,


  3. Awesome! I got one of those emails for my old blog that I rarely post to anymore (because my new blog isn’t on WordPress.com), and I was surprised to see how many people view OLD posts that I wrote a year or more ago. Hope you had a fantastic New Year. Looking forward to reading your blog in 2011!

  4. Meghan,

    Thanks so much for your support!

    FYI: I’ve dropped by your blog and tried to comment a few times, but my comments never show up. Just wanted you to know in light of your recent post about problems with comments…I’m still reading πŸ™‚


  5. I’m so glad I got to be a part of your blog last year, Christi! I’m surprised the “You Don’t Suck File” post didn’t make it into the top slots, though. That was my personal favorite. πŸ˜€

  6. Lydia,

    Our great minds think alike πŸ™‚ The “You Don’t Suck File” was one of my favorite posts too. I think I’ll try re-running it this year and see how the numbers differ.

    Thanks again for bringing over such a great guest post. It still gets hits to this day πŸ™‚
