My 2010 Blog in Review Provides Inspiration for 2011

Below is a copy of the summary that WordPress.com did on my Blog for 2010.  There was a link to share it here so I thought I would.  BUT, I’m taking it a step further to provide my own thoughts at the end of the summary.  So, don’t forget to read that too! 😉

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

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 6,800 times in 2010. That’s about 16 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 56 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 281 posts. There were 109 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 18mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was July 3rd with 727 views. The most popular post that day was Charice – My New Obsession.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were charicemania.com, cbox.ws, networkedblogs.com, twitter.com, and facebook.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for peas, american flag, charice, vegetarian dishes, and vegetarian meals.

So, what did I get out of all this?

  • Celebrity-driven posts (namely Charice) tend to drive traffic too
  • Networked blogs WORKS!  As do Twitter & Facebook linking.  Well, alrighty then!
  • I’m inspired to write more posts about vegetarian living and surviving unemployment (perhaps a series? for both??)

All in all, I found this re-cap to be very enlightening…AND inspiring.  One of my goals this year is to be more consistent with my blogging and stick to a plan.  With the ideas rolling now, I might just be able to do that. 

Thanks to EVERYONE who has read my rambles, thoughts, and inspirations in 2010.  I hope to make 2011 just as rambling, thought-provoking, and above all, inspiring.

Happy New Year…again!
