This morning I received this review by email from WordPress. I found it interesting and decided to share it with the readers and visitors of the blog. I take the opportunity to thank all of you, and wish you a Happy and Creative New Year!
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 Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 200,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 9 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 109 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 315 posts. There were 953 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 233mb. That’s about 3 pictures per day.
The busiest day of the year was March 8th with 1 views. The most popular post that day was Michelangelo’s Pieta: Rome and Florence.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were foodbuzz.com, cookthebook.blogspot.com, despinarion.wordpress.com, facebook.com, and search.conduit.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for salvador dali, michelangelo, claudia cardinale, rita hayworth, and pieta.
