Awhile ago I received an email from WordPress indicating 2010 blog successes and statistics. I switched from Blogspot to WordPress in early 2010, primarily for a need to measure stats, and was pleasantly surprised to get the email.
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
This blog was viewed 10,191 times in 2010. That’s absolutely crazy. I have never thought of my blog as something that people read. I write because I enjoy it. I don’t write for other people, I write for me.
In 2010, there were 113 new posts! There were 227 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 151mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was October 1st with 307 views. The most popular post that day was a voice. This post touches my heart the most and I’m proud to say it still gets about 50 views a day.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were twitter.com, facebook.com, hootsuite.com, Google Reader, and marleylynng.blogspot.com. Love to little Miss Marley.
I have been at a blogging standstill for awhile. In late 2010, I promised myself that I would launch two new websites in 2011 – one business/HR related and the other, a more formal personal blog. In January I was connected with a top notch IT guy and he outlined the steps to website success. I know exactly what needs to be done, and have a pretty good idea of how to get there. Coming home from Belize and being sick with these creatures (parasites from brushing my teeth with the water – yum!) has given me an excuse to put website design & development on the back burner.
Well no longer. Stay tuned for new site launches this Spring.
Thank you for making my 2010 amazing. With all my heart, XO.
