Welcome back in 2011! I haven’t written too many posts lately (due to a lot of work), so it is a nice incentive that the stats team from WordPress.com thinks this blog did quite well last year. Below is a high level overview of blog stats since its inception in March 2010 – courtesy of Andy, Joen, Martin, Zé, and Automattic at WordPress.com with some amendments and reformulations from me:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads This blog is doing awesome! – as you can see this is a rather close call though 😉
The Leaning Tower of Pisa has 296 steps to reach the top. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2010. If those were steps, it would have climbed the Leaning Tower of Pisa 4 times
In 2010, there were 11 new posts, not bad for the first year! (seeing post counts from various other scientific bloggers leaves with some doubt about that statement)
The busiest day of the year was October 11th with 37 views. The most popular post that day was Blinded peer reviews – a thing of the past?.
Where did they come from?
The top referring site in 2010 was twitter.com (by far) . This is not surprising as I announce all new posts there.
People that came via search engines searched mostly for science 2.0, for me, or for a combination of both. The most popular searches contentwise related to conducting a group discussion.
