2010 in review

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.

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 250,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 11 days for that many people to see it.


In 2010, there were 1312 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 2279 posts. There were 49 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 20mb. That’s about 4 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was March 8th with 1 views. The most popular post that day was d.m. Sir Kenneth Dover.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were atrium-media.com, twitter.com, Google Reader, news.discovery.com, and google.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for rogue classicism, rogueclassicism, arsinoe, cleopatra’s tomb, and traianos gagos.
