2010 in review (according to WordPress)

by

This was sent to us by the wonderful folks at WordPress who provide us with a free platform to spread our flavor of fun. This is blogwhoring at its best, especially because it’s done by someone else.
[Whoa. Something ain’t right here: “The busiest day of the year was June 28th with 4 views.” Bigass FAIL there, WP! 2,081 is a tad closer!]

Check it out:

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 Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 240,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 10 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 395 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1443 posts. There were 794 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 314mb. That’s about 2 pictures per day.

The busiest day of the year was June 28th with 4 views. The most popular post that day was The .Gif Friday Post No. 129 – Compound Pendulum, Nematode, Catslide.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were stumbleupon.com, en.wordpress.com, mentalfloss.com, ogdaa.blogspot.com, and nodwick.humor.gamespy.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for ferret, motivational poster, science fair projects, gif animation, and steampunk.

    Man, I wish mine had an analogy with the Louvre instead of the Taj.
    WP failed with my most views for my photoblog, it said 4 and there were thousands.

  2. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Kitty– Don’t fret, because in the big picture, it really, really matters. =)

  3. C Monster Says:

    That’s higher math to me, Bunk. How your busiest day had four visits, yet 11 people commented, is beyond my feeble calculus.

    I have often wondered how more people can steal my art than view the posts it’s attached to.
    Another cosmic mystery.

  4. Bunk Strutts Says:

    C Mon– On the other hand, four is precisely correct in base 520.25… or maybe it’s the inverse, base .0019 — I don’t remember. As for your art, it takes me three or four tries before I get it right, and I’m probably not alone. Wait… you have art?

  5. theliteraryhorse Says:

    I think my analogy was filling an elevator. Once. Niche market.
    Odd, the post with 5 visits (my highest number) had 53 comments. Fine. I commented myself, 53 times.

  6. Bunk Strutts Says:

    thelit– One of my most-viewed posts had nothing to do with the title “Lesbian Amputee Dwarf Porn.” Got a lot of search engine results with that one.
