So I got an email from WordPress about last year on this blog. I’m not sure how they gauge some of this data, mind you – they seem to think my Blog is ‘Wow’ healthy.
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 78,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 3 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 135 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 299 posts. There were 86 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 31mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was April 4th with 1,180 views. The most popular post that day was Resurrection Day: Memories of Mark Ashton. Many people came to share their memories of Mark, a wonderful Christian leader and godly, humble pastor.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were twitter.com, facebook.com, cranmercurate.blogspot.com, fatprophet.blogspot.com, and en.wordpress.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for orange puffle, where the wild things are, bible, puffle, and club penguin orange puffle. This is because I have a picture of the Engineer looking like an orange puffle and puffles are a great subject of interest to youngsters who spend too much time on Google. Where the Wild Things are was out as a movie in 2010, so it’s not very surprising that the YouTube clip of the Joker reciting the story was popular. I think people who search for ‘bible’ are just looking for an image.

People are also interested in my ‘About‘ page, Clergy News (which I only update intermittently, sorry) and How to Cope as a Vicar’s Wife: The Top Ten Tips. The blog ticks along at around 150-250 pageviews a day and in January ranked in a mighty 40th place in the Wikio religion blog rankings. I now have 28 followers. Thanks for all your support in 2010. I’m looking forward to continuing to think through the inner city, family, faith and food in 2011.
