Torture numbers and they’ll confess to anything.

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how my blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 7,900 times in 2010. That’s about 19 full 747s.
In 2010, there were 61 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 331 posts. There were 79 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 92mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was April 29th with 58 views. The most popular post that day was Three Things Thursday #59 & #60.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were dawnking.interspike.com [Ed. note: Thanks, Dawn!], varunkashyap.wordpress.com, Google Reader, piratecrackers.com, and twitter.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for peace, princess cake, peace on earth, princess castle cake, and hot baseball players. [Ed. note: that they “came searching for hot baseball players” makes me laugh – girls (and maybe boys) after my own heart!]
