2010 in review

I know you loyal Squirrel Thoughts readers are super interested in how my blog fared over the past year, so fortunately for you, a talented bunch of helper monkeys over at WordPress have assembled a statistical snapshot of squirrelthoughts.com in 2010.

I hardly deserve the high marks, seeing how I haven’t posted for almost a month, but I promise I’ll get her up and running again in the new year. And the Interwebs police keep bothering me about paying up to maintain my domain name, so I better make it worth that 15 bucks. Happy 2011, everyone!


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.

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 6,100 times in 2010. That’s about 15 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 59 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 167 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 92mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was November 5th with 115 views. The most popular post that day was In which Monte burns down the University Center.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, theyogurtchronicles.blogspot.com, whatgoodarethewords.blogspot.com, emilysrunning.blogspot.com, and twitter.com.

(I’d like to thank my good friends Danny Davis, Sarah Windmueller, Emily Hoover and Mark Zuckerburg for these referrals. And the Twitter guy, too. Biz, maybe? Buzz? Buzz McAllister?)

Some visitors came searching, mostly for baby bunnies, fat bunnies, types of bunnies, fat bunny, and fattest rabbit.
