Well everyone else is doing it so I might as well post my stats too. I hope my fellow bloggers don’t start jumping off bridges. 🙂
As a blogger, I’ve found all this stat comparing useful. I’ve definitely been neglecting my blog a little this year (written fewer posts) with a corresponding sharp drop off in page views. If page views are important to me, and I think they are, then I will have to try to return to my post a week format. Good information all in all.
Here it is the WordPress stats with a little commentary from me:
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. (I think this is like the “participation badge” in the Canada Fitness Test)
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 4,500 times in 2010. That’s about 11 full 747s.
In 2010, there were 34 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 77 posts. There were 8 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 10mb.
The busiest day of the year was March 23rd. The most popular post that day was Carleton University’s Sock N Buskin Keeps it Simple With Urinetown .
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, twitter.com, karaleighsayspayattentiontome.blogspot.com, WordPress Dashboard, and nadinethornhill.wordpress.com.
(Joining Facebook was apparently a good idea for blog promotion after all. I’m also saddened by the fact that Kara has closed shop this year.)
Some visitors came searching, mostly for wayne current, many faces of wayne, night christopher morris, night by christopher morris, and wayne current ottawa. (This makes me happy. People seem to be actually looking for my content rather than randomly searching and hitting my blog by accident.)
