This blog in 2010
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com have done their job and kept track of how this blog did in 2010. Here are the crunchy numbers:
This blog was viewed about 3,200 times in 2010. According to the stat monkeys, that equals about 8 full Boeing 747 jets.
In 2010, I wrote 26 new posts, and the total archive of this blog now counts 269 posts. I uploaded 25 pictures, or about 2 pictures per month.
The busiest day of the year was January 15th with 106 views. The most popular post that day was Fuktig fruktbarhetsgudinne på teithetstoppen.
Where did they come from?
Some visitors came searching, mostly for democracy symbol, sungame, naken greve jager neger med øks, egyptian flag, and british police.

As you can see, four of last year’s five most popular posts were written before 2010. According to the stat monkeys, this means my writing has staying power, and they rate my blog “Fresher than ever” on their so-called Blog-Health-o-Meter.
Alas, there is another way to read their carefully amassed statistics: While I wrote about two posts a month last year, and uploaded just as many pictures, the content I produced in 2010 just wasn’t good enough. Or maybe not original enough. Or somebody else did it better than me.
Anyway, my posts from 2010 were clearly not as original, relevant and overall interesting to as many readers as my older writings. Therefore, I see these numbers not as a pat on the back, but more as swift kick in the somewhat lower posterior region, and I will try to do better in 2011.
