For this week’s ‘PostAWeek’, I’m copping out and showing the stats email WordPress sent me (and presumably, all the rest of the WordPress bloggers. Don’t worry — I’ve added comments to make the read even more interesting!
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how
this blog Me, Myself… And All Of Them did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow. At first I thought they knew I blogged about World of Warcraft. Then I realized it just meant they were impressed. Also, I enjoy how this meter has no red.
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 2,400 times in 2010. That’s about 6 full 747s. Or to put it another way, if each viewer had a can of beer each time they viewed the site (which they wouldn’t, since a good number of them are spambots), the amount of beer would fill about 6.25 bathtubs (thank you, Weird Converter!)
In 2010, there were 41 new posts, not bad for the first year! Technically the first post was in April, so that’s not even a full year! There were 165 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 34mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week. They chose a cute picture for this section, suspiciously from one of my most popular posts. Good thing they picked the cute picture — if they hadn’t I would have had to change it, and fiddling with pictures is such a drag.
The busiest day of the year was July 12th with 75 views. The most popular post that day was About. That was the day I joined twitter and @ILikeBubbles told people to welcome me. I was overwhelmed by the luv on the twitters. ❤ you guys!
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were twitter.com (WoW bloggers/readers, spambots), blogazeroth.com (WoW bloggers/readers), mmomeltingpot.com (WoW bloggers/readers), aodstudios.com (WoW artists), and healthfitnesstherapy.com (spambots).
Some visitors came searching, mostly for power of the horde tooth, power of the horde – tooth, tooth horde, horde tooth, and horde by tooth. These searchers end up at this post (look familiar?), as they too are trying to find out who this ‘Tooth’ is. My own searches for the artist Tooth have also been futile. Tooth, if you’re out there, link us your site so we all can find it, because you draw awesome.
