#oneaday 2 – To move forward, we must first look back

2 Jan

I just got this summary emailed to me by wordpress, so I thought it’d be good to share it with anyone reading and then do a comparison this time next year when I’ve got stats that are much more juicy. I’m now off on a new-year cleaning session followed by a massive workout. Then tonight I’m going to curl up with Will Self and Simon Pegg and geek-out in bed with their books. Lush.

Right, here comes the science, concentrate…

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 This blog is on fire!.

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 2,100 times in 2010. That’s about 5 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 14 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 19 posts. There were 41 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 3mb. That’s about 3 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was October 1st with 123 views. The most popular post that day was I have a confession.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were twitter.com, facebook.com, paperstreet-press.blogspot.com and ianinthefuture.wordpress.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for night sky, beatifnik, the rude shipyard, old strongman, and strongmen.

Also, I’ve now added a socialvibe link to my side bar, which means you can donate to the suicide prevention charity, To Write Love on Her Arms. It doesn’t cost a thing, all you need to do is click and do an activity (takes all of about 30 seconds). Money is always tight after Christmas but time is freeeee! There’s also the Cancer Research UK one too if you’re feeling generous, those are the two official charities for this year’s #oneaday challenge.

Hope everyone is settling into 2011 okay, if you’re blogging – how’re you finding it so far? I tinkered about with the look and feel of my blog yesterday, what do you reckon?

And, because people seem to arrive at my blog searching for 1920s strong man, old strong man and strongmen, here are some nice pictures. Bizzarro.
