The stats below were sent to me a couple days ago by WordPress. For a blog where I share a hodge-podge of theological questions, church news, book reviews, and notes from my personal life, it seems to get fair traffic (5,000 views per year). Based on feedback I get in Facebook, it seems most of my friends read my newer posts there, rather that on the blog itself. Which means that what gets attention here are posts which show up people’s searches. This is why only two of the 5 most-visited posts in 2010 were actually written in 2010. And this is entertaining: a search for “sadness” regularly brings people to this blog. Perhaps that means I’ll write on those regularly searched-for topics more in 2011. The environment, spiritual disciplines, and scripture, I mean. Not sadness.
Anyway, here’s this blog’s 2010 year in review, in Wordpress’s words:
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:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Fresher than ever.
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 5,000 times in 2010. That’s about 12 full 747s.
In 2010, there were 38 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 210 posts. There were 14 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 1mb. That’s about a picture per month.
The busiest day of the year was April 18th with 61 views. The most popular post that day was Heaven and Nature Sing: Creation Care and Spiritual Disciplines.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were pghupperroom.com, facebook.com, introvertedchurch.com, twitter.com, and ancientchristianfaith.blogspot.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for sadness, dominion over creation, genesis 1 dominion, bright, and working for jesus.
