I’m starting this year off on a lazy note. Wordpress sent me an email with a fun little summary of Exercising Monsters over the last year, and it is interesting enough for me to want to share it here. I question, mind you, how the tourism stats of the Taj Mahal relates in any way to my site, but I appreciate the narcissistic rush I get from seeing my work in an automated email.
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:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 28,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 157 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 249 posts. There were 197 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 29mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was June 29th with 734 views. The most popular post that day was Vampire Alternatives.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, Google Reader, google.ca, girlonthepark.wordpress.com, and geekinheels.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for team jacob, team edward, stop sign, alligators, and prosciutto.
