2010 in review

Here’s my 2010 summary courtesy of the helper monkeys at WordPress! Thanks to everyone who visited and who posted. It’s been an experience.

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 60,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 7 days for that many people to see it.

[in other words, I’m the tiny shop at the end of the huge bazaar!]

In 2010, there were 94 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 96 posts. There were 137 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 8mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was August 16th with 1,106 views. The most popular post that day was The Eternal Return .

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were rabett.blogspot.com, climateaudit.org, initforthegold.blogspot.com, scienceblogs.com, and deepclimate.org.

[Thanks to Rabett, IIFTG, DC  and others for providing links to my blog or posts or coming here from those blogs — appreciated!]

Some visitors came searching, mostly for far side cartoons, beelzebub, policy lass, shewonk, and donkey.

  1. Thank you for your blog. It’s provokes thoughtfulness in an increasingly thoughtless world. As one who has been involved in policy-writing / policy development for much of my career (government policy generally and science-related policy for some years), I appreciate your take on things.

    Keep up the good work and best wishes for 2011.
