The second post of the year of the WordPress Post A Day 2011 couldn’t have come in any simpler form, being hosted on WordPress.com has its advantages and one of those which only started this year was them sending an email with stats about the blog in 2010.
The bit about January 2nd being the busiest day with only 1 view is a bit wrong since there were 18,707 blog visits that month and I was averaging 5000 visits per week when I blogged regularly, but computer problems and a lack of stuff to blog about meant that it dropped to below 2000 a week, which I think isn’t too bad considering I didn’t blog for some months at a time.
Anyway, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank anyone and everyone that comes here to read my nonsense and especially anyone that’s silly enough to return for more of my ramblings :p … Read on see the stats that WordPress put together and with this Post A Day 2011 Challenge, I’m sure that the next years stats will be at least twice as impressive!
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 130,000 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 108 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 470 posts. There were 170 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 15mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was January 2nd with 1 views. The most popular post that day was R4DS Skins.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were macuha.com, youtube.com, dcemu.co.uk, newsinside.org, and atmaxplorer.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for batchdpg, katy perry, katy perry boobs, xxx asia argento, and emily deschanel wonder woman.
