2010 in review

This is a guest blog post by the stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com. I helped out with a bit of copyediting and reformatting.

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 This blog is on fire!

A helper monkey made this abstract painting, inspired by the stats of this blog.

Crunchy numbers

In 2010, there were 21 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 58 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 38mb. That’s about 1 picture per week.

The busiest day of the year was April 3rd with 219 views. The most popular post that day was I am not wasting my Ph.D.
