2010 in review

The part of this post between the little lines wasn’t written by me (although I did edit it a little).  Just so’s you know.

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 Wow.

Crunchy numbers

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 85 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 303 posts.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were thejobbingdoctor.blogspot.com, mentalnurse.org, thesecretlifeofamanicdepressive.wordpress.com, merope3.livejournal.com, and notanotherstudent.blogspot.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for gareth thomas, stephen fry gay marriage, is stephen fry married, naked sportsmen, and rupert graves.

Attractions in 2010

These are the posts and pages that got the most views in 2010.


General election drinking game May 2010


Hot naked self-pics May 2010


AfterElton Hot 100 May 2010


My life in crushes March 2009


Stephen Fry and gay marriage April 2009

Well, at least the blog had a healthy year…

Also, I feel slightly bad that so many people were snared by the ‘hot naked self-pics’ thing; unless there are a lot of under-developed lower-leg fetishists in the world, I fear there were a number of disappointed visitors.

Thanks to everyone who visited – 30,000 page views strikes me as pretty extraordinary, especially given that the blog’s been a little quieter ot late.

Coming soon,* actual contact, actually written by me.

* – for a certain value of ‘soon’
