WordPress sent me an email summarizing my blog’s annual stats. So, let me take this opportunity say THANK YOU to everyone who represents one of these views! Please accept my formal invitation to DE-lurk and let me know you’ve been here by commenting on this post! (if you want to keep lurking, go right ahead. this is a no pressure zone.)
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 48,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 6 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 167 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 587 posts. There were 65 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 118mb. That’s about 1 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was April 3rd with 3,709 views. The most popular post that day was Easter Bunny Cake. (It appears my blog was THE place to find an Easter Bunny Cake pattern in April of 2010. This post got 7,480 views during the entire month of April and a total of 13,493 views for the entire year!)
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were alphainventions.com, blogsurfer.us, wearethatfamily.com, facebook.com, and tammysrecipes.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for easter bunny cake, bunny cake, easter bunny cakes, keloid, and hypertrophic scar.

This whole thing reminds me of a project PinkGirl did a few months ago. She had to write something about each of her family members. Here’s what she wrote about me: “My mom’s blog is famous because people all over the world read it.” And this is what she wrote about her dad: “My dad has a mustache.”
