2010 My Literary Quest in review

Nothing says lovin’ from your blog engine like an easy to use review.  A huge thanks to everyone who has made this possible.

Happy New Year!

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.

About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 38,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 233 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 283 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 15mb. That’s about 5 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was June 2nd with 2,968 views. The most popular post that day was The Evil Adverb.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were wordpress.com, mail.live.com, WordPress Dashboard, mail.yahoo.com, and en.wordpress.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for paraprosdokian quotes, shel silverstein, john keats, fablehaven, and xenophobia.

    Yay! Wonderful numbers . . . especially your average views per post!

    Write on!

      Not sure if the numbers are an accurate representation of what happens. Some of my posts have become reference posts and get dozens of hits a day, especially the castle posts, go figure. The rest of the posts maybe get a few dozen the first few days they are written and then that’s it!

    Wow–that’s amazing. I’m just tweaking along at barely over 3,000–like driving the backroads; but I’m enjoying the journey. 🙂

    Congratulations on a great year.

  7. Michael Knudsen says:

    I got the “wow” rating too but haven’t had nearly the success you have when you look at the numbers. You just have a knack for content that other people want to see. Keep it up!

    • tsuchigari says:

      We all deserve a hearty wow for all the work we put in. If you link your blog to your comments I’m sure some of my other readers will come and visit – they’re a fun bunch!
