After weeks weeks of not posting a thing, I now discover that WordPress.com has taken over this blog. Or so it seems. Perhaps it’s their way of reminding me to get my blogging ass back in gear, but some bot over there has seen fit to mail me a ready-made Year in Review post. Perfect for a bone-lazy blogger like me who’s been wondering when, if ever, that urge to post regularly will ever come back.
Who knows? Happy New Year anyway.
Snarky comments in bold are mine.
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:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
The Blog Zombie Meter reads: Putrefaction stage
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 110,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 5 days for that many people to see it.
I’m sure each would demand his entry fee back. As for the posts themselves, if you were to print out every post in 10-point and glue each word together, you would have enough to string from the Statue of Liberty’s base up to her armpit. Aren’t stats meaningful?
In 2010, there were 53 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 374 posts. There were 143 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 30mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week.
Troll comments deleted: 13. Spam referral links: countless. Estimated date WordPress will do something about spam links: whenever.
The busiest day of the year was February 15th with 647 views. The most popular post that day was Are we raising our kids to be wimps?.
Go to freerangekids for the answer.
Where did they come from?

Some visitors came searching, mostly for the queen, horses jumping, naked 13 year old girls, swallows, and snake head.
That list is so embarrassing, I almost left it out.
