Happy 2011 everyone! Hope all had a nice holiday break. The folks at WordPress have been busy — see below for a nicely done “good job in 2010″ email I received Sunday. (The image they chose below is the ABS unit in my 2001 BMW 530 – my biggest DIY money saver to date.)
I already knew this information via the Stats page (and some additional info as well via QuantCast), but I appreciate the recap email from the WordPress crew. With wordpress.com supporting hundreds of thousands of sites and receiving almost 39 million U.S. visitors per month, sending a customized email to each blog is a significant investment of time. Merry New Year to you WordPress, and thanks for a flexible, powerful and free platform! </intro>
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.
The average container ship can carry about 4,500 containers. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2010. If each view were a shipping container, your blog would have filled about 4 fully loaded ships.
In 2010, there were 75 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 199 posts. There were 136 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 18mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was October 13th with 356 views. The most popular post that day was Part Two — Interview with Mike Miller.
Where did they come from?

A lot of visitors came searching, mostly for difference between saas and asp, do you feel lucky punk, bmw quality, saas vs asp, chris parente, and trends in government contracting.
