Personal: The blog in review

I’d been looking through WordPress’ stats page for a summary of 2010 but couldn’t find one. Today they’ve started sending out emails out to everybody with a blog on their service with some of the data I was after. I’ll leave the info untouched, with any personal comments inserted as quotes:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Fresher than ever.


I’ve seen a couple of these today and I’ve not seen any that haven’t come up fresh, the only difference being how far along the needle is within the final segment. I don’t consider this blog particularly active or successful so I think WordPress are being fairly generous here.

Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 2,100 times in 2010. That’s about 5 full 747s.


In 2010, there were 104 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 161 posts. There were 183 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 4mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was August 18th with 109 views. The most popular post that day was Film: 30 Movies in 30 Days.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were twitter.com, deadhomersociety.wordpress.com, slatfatf.wordpress.com, en.wordpress.com, and android-vs-ipad.co.cc.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for dino d-day, fallout 3 project beauty, hitler cry, dino d day, and transformers testicles.

The ‘transformers testicles’ search comes up a lot. I’m guessing people were after an image they could use to reinforce their point about how horrible Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is, and not for some other reason.

I don’t know why Dino D-Day and that particular Fallout mod get so many searches on WordPress, as it seems to be people looking for downloads and I’d think they’d start with ModDB or Fallout Nexus, or even searching through Google rather than WordPress itself.
