2010 in Review

I got my new WordPress report card for 2010…the results are below. Not sure if they grade on a curve but I would say I got at least a solid “B+”. 🙂

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.

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 190,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 8 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 206 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 466 posts. There were 192 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 67mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was November 20th with 54,713 views. The most popular post that day was Starlights in the Dark.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were lightsinthedark.com, stumbleupon.com, universetoday.com, facebook.com, and pajamasmedia.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for tunguska, tunguska event, lightsinthedark, lights in the dark, and sun texture.

  1. Well I can say that I recently found this site through a friend in the planetarium biz, and I’ve bookmarked it to check back daily. Wonderful stuff. Well maintained. (Really nice border, too!)

    Thank you for your constant efforts. :o)

  2. You’re in my email subs list. Love the sight. Have linked to you, and commented once, I think – I tend to be a bit of a lurker!

    Happy New Year and I hope you keep up the posting in 2011!
