Last year, I had a goal to post at least one new thing a day on my blog. I hit that goal and on some days I was able to surpass it. This morning while checking email, I got an email from the folks at WordPress telling me how my blog fared over the last 365 days. The numbers are below. What I think is really fun, are the things that were my top posts for 2010, especially since the biggest hits came for things I posted in December of 2009.
Thanks to everyone that visited my blog and look for more over the coming year.
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 Wow.
About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 78,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 7 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 450 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 631 posts.
The busiest day of the year was December 7th with 1890 views. The most popular post that day was Alfred Preis Architect, USS Arizona Memorial.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, twitter.com, google.com, en.wordpress.com, and Google Reader.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for mercedes logo, office design, uss arizona memorial, uss arizona, and max huber.
