The helpful monkeys at WordPress.com sent me a statistical breakdown of how many visitors read my blog, where they came from, what they were interested in… all that juicy kinda goodness that can help me make my blog even better this year!
But of course this was generated by virtual monkeys pounding away on virtual typewriters. What I’d find more useful is feedback from real people (or monkeys) – ie. you!
So how about it? Click on the Contact link at the top of the page and tell me what you liked on the blog, what you didn’t like, what you’d like to see more of, or what you’d like to see that I haven’t covered. I know I’m a rather erratic blogger – sometimes real life stuff keeps me away for ages. And sometimes I write rather controversial stuff. But that’s what I’m like. What do you think? Let me kno; contact me!
In the meantime, here’s the 2010 report from WordPress.com. Happy reading – and, of course, let me know what you think through Comments. Help me make I HATE HATE!!! the most fantastic site on the interwebz!
I HATE HATE!! – 2010 in review
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.
About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 30,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 55 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 166 posts. There were 12 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 1mb. That’s about a picture per month.
The busiest day of the year was December 9th with 191 views. The most popular post that day was 4chan’s “Anonymous” group and “Operation Payback” DDOS Mastercard, PayPal, Assange’s Swiss bank… screw ’em, I say!.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were ubuntuforums.org, ubuntuguide.org, facebook.com, google.com, and google.co.in.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for get_iplayer, how to make pepper spray, hitler, bush, and nytol.
