2010 in review

OK, here is the “year in review” e-mail sent to me by WordPress, which summarizes traffic on my blog, for all of you hardcore WordPress fans out there who are keeping stats.

I noticed that both I and my daughter’s blog ended up in “wow” territory, which I guess is OK, but could also reflect a low “wow” threshold.  I supposed WordPress wants to encourage its free content providers.

Still, there is some interesting stuff, at least to me, and after all, it only has to be interesting to me to get posted here!  I am slightly disturbed that “GI Joe Porn” is one of the searches that leads people to my blog, though.  Poor GI Joe Porn searchers … (and, yes, I also wonder–what is a GI Joe Porn searcher looking for?)

The WordPress Analysis that was e-mailed to me:

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.

    Well sure, your blog is Wow. But Amanda’s is AWESOME.

    Very true. I am a bit sad that the measure of success is the number of 747s. Could it not be something even more ridiculous? “Your blog had more than 7,000 hits. That means it would take more than 7,000 unicycles to carry your audience, unless your numerous sisters and offspring account for half those hits. That doesn’t reduce the hits, but does reduce the unicycles …”
