Old Dog Blog’s 2010 Review


Hello! Hope you had a good break!

The stats monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how our blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of our overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads This blog is on fire!

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2010. That’s about 4 full 747s.

In 2010 we uploaded 12 new posts, growing the total archive to 24 posts.

Our busiest day of the year was 13 December with 73 views. The most popular post that day was our on-line Christmas Card Happy Christmas Everybody! More people clicked on this photographp of David Beckham than on any other! Quite what they were hoping to see I can only begin to imagine!

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were our own site newtricks.co.uk, from my twitter feeds @normanken with the links ht.lyow.ly, at twitter.com, and lmodules.com (though I’ve no idea what that is!!)

Some visitors came searching, mostly for  sleeping audience and audience sleeping.
