It cracks me up to have gotten an email from WordPress about how my blog performed this year. (Can blogs perform? I’m not sure what else to call it.) Below are some snippets of what the email said. WordPress claims some of this work is done by helper-monkeys, so it must not be all wrong. (To wit: “If you liked what you saw in this summary and want to know more about how your blog is doing, you can always visit your Site Stats, where our helper-monkeys are working day and night to provide you with pages and pages of detail on how your blog is doing.”)
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
(Rebecca says: Wow! Cool. My blog is healthy! Maybe it can infect all of us who have been sick lately.)
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 5,100 times in 2010. That’s about 12 full 747s.
In 2010, there were 65 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 142 posts. There were 62 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 6mb. That’s about 1 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was January 6th with 169 views. The most popular post that day was The Watery Girl accepted by Red Hen Press!.
(Says Rebecca: Dang! Too bad that one fell through.)
…Some visitors came searching, mostly for rebeccakuder.com, sasha jenson, tom waits small change, rebecca kuder, and suckers.
(Rebecca says: I like the “sasha jensen” and “suckers” search best. I think I had one post about Microsoft that said “suckers.”)
May we all have lots of helper-monkeys, helping in unexpected ways, in 2011.
