Since we moved over to WordPress.com in March I have seen a distinct growth in our readership so Narutaki and I thought you might be interested to see how the site has grown as well. As always what is popular on the site still remains a mystery to me and might very well do so for all time. I hope to see more growth on the site and hope that you, our readers, continue to provide us feedback so we can best serve your needs while writing what we want to write with passion and energy.
I had no idea WP did this round-up thing, but I figured why not post it. We’ve seen great growth since moving over to the official WP site and I’m happy to see by their standards we are in a “wow” category, who would have thought! The stat about picture uploads can be ignored since we use our Photobucket for most things. I’m pretty happy to see Gosick as one of the top search terms as well as our own name. Anyhow, just a little post to let our readers see some stats!
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.
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 86,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 4 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 195 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 446 posts. There were 58 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 8mb. That’s about 1 picture per week.
