This is 7th hour at Pacelli. We are learning about blogging. I have the privilege of subbing for the English teacher all week.

I have some well-rehearsed writing skills, but these kids have MAD computer skills!!!! They taught me how to take this photo with my computer (!) and use PhotoBooth to put it immediately onto the blog!!! CRAZY!!! Thanks, students!! You are the best!! And everyone who has left a comment anywhere on my blog (on any of the 318 posts) gets participation points!!

7th Hour Communications Class

2010 in review, from WordPress

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.

The average container ship can carry about 4,500 containers. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2010. If each view were a shipping container, your blog would have filled about 4 fully loaded ships.


In 2010, there were 190 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 316 posts. There were 454 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 680mb. That’s about 1 pictures per day.

The busiest day of the year was February 24th with 210 views. The most popular post that day was Moab or Bust… and I’ll probably bust.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, postbulletin.com, en.wordpress.com, johnbirchphotography.blogspot.com, and mail.live.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for wind scorpion, false kiva, false kiva directions, cliff wall, and mineral bottom road washout.
