2010 in review


Chris beat me to the punch and published his 2010 Blog review kindly sent over by wordpress. It certainly makes for interesting reading. I wish I could be as prolific as others.

 

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.

About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 54,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 7 days for that many people to see it.

 

In 2010, there were 24 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 352 posts. There were 36 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 71mb. That’s about 3 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was January 6th with 480 views. The most popular post that day was Ten Dubai Phrases.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were uaecommunity.blogspot.com, an-englishman-in-dubai.blogspot.com, flyertalk.com, dubaithoughts.blogspot.com, and lonelyplanet.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for englishman in dubai, brett siegel, an englishman in dubai, dubai tailors, and top 10 things to do in dubai.
