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!

A helper monkey made this abstract painting, inspired by your stats.

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 6,400 times in 2010. That’s about 15 full 747s.


In 2010, there were 81 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 31 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 2mb. That’s about 3 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was October 4th with 177 views. The most popular post that day was What a dream….

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were jinglepoetry.blogspot.com, facebook.com, thursdaypoetsrallypoetry.wordpress.com, WordPress Dashboard, and mail.yahoo.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for bodhirose, bodhirose blog, cardinal bird poem, maitreya relic tour, and siamese cat drawing.

  1. Galyle, how nice the way you pieced this analysis together. I read each poem again. The last one I don’t think I’d read before. Lovely.

    Hooray! Fine wrap-up and fine post. Best wishes for a “Bogoriffic” 2011. Good job on 2010.

    Thanks for the pleasure of your poetry.


    • Jamie, I didn’t do this analysis. WordPress sent this to me today as a recap of my year’s blogging. I’ve seen other people have posted theirs as well. It’s fun to see. I’m sure you must have gotten one too?

      And thank you for the congratulations for the year (a few months) of my poetry. I hope there’s more where those came from! 🙂


      • They said it went into spam probably. I don’t remember seeing anything, but maybe I didn’t realize it was from WordPress and deleted it. Not a biggie. Enjoyed yours and then after I saw some others.Nice thing for them to do. I like WordPress.


      • It would have been fun to see your stats, Jamie. I like WordPress too–that was such a nice surprise! 🙂


      • Subsequently, I found out that WordPress was rather careful and selective. They set some paramaters for the blogs they would contact. They had some concerns around offending!!??

        I enjoyed reading yours and then later read some on other blogs. Fun! Ultimately it was a nice and clever thing to do, though I suspect some pragmatic intention. 🙂 Nevermind. Love WordPress.

        Blog on …


      • Offending? I wonder what that means? Well I guess there’s always going to be someone offended by something–you can’t please everyone. I’m happy that I was in their parameter for choosing–I’m not offended! 🙂

        I would have liked to have seen more of those stats of people–I enjoyed them and went back and read poems I had missed. A great idea I thought. Thanks, Jamie.


  2. its a great achievement for a newbee 🙂
    hope and pray it grows more and more with coming years.


  3. your writing was beautiful from the day one, i know it will become awesome with regular practice.


  4. amen. 🙂


  5. Amen. 🙂
