The numbers are in for 2010!

Since we moved over to 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 mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

    Those are staggering stats! It’s a job well done.

    I don’t know about others, but for me I like how your articles were written and your insights to the anime you saw and the industry itself.

      I will admit that is an amazing way to get a good amount of traffic. That is the secret of my success (starring Michael J. Fox).

      Thanks for the flattering words. It is always great to know that someone is reading the blog and getting some amount of insight and enjoyment from it.
