2010 in review, from WordPress

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kathryn Colestock-Burke @ 9:17 am

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.

Crunchy numbers

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.

These are the posts and pages that got the most views in 2010.

  2. Blog Author’s Comment: My “most-viewed post” earned that distinction only because the web address was posted on the front page of our local newspaper for an article that day! There was no substantive content that drew 210 viewers. In my coming season I hope to learn to organize my posts and put ‘favorites’ in a sidebar. I truly appreciate the steady flow of visitors even when my blog is not active, and I look forward to ramping up my writing once again.
