Apparently, the stats helper monkeys at WordPress mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and produced an overall summary of how it performed during the year. Although reported as ‘healthy’ (I wonder what that means?), it’s clear I need to write more in 2011.
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads This blog is on fire!.
The average container ship can carry about 4,500 containers. This blog was viewed about 19,000 times in 2010. If each view were a shipping container, my blog would have filled about 4 fully loaded ships.
In 2010, there were (only) 6 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 39 posts. There were 12 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 529kb. That’s about a picture per month. 2011′s new year’s resolution is to triple that figure, making at least three posts per month.
The busiest day of the year was November 30th with 123 views. The most popular post that day was How to build a web connected gas meter with your Arduino.
With this in mind, I’ll be trying to make a few more posts on the Arduinometer project this year, and I’m already working on a version for the Netduino.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were arduino.cc, jtlog.wordpress.com (thanks, James!), mbed.org, code.google.com, and homesenseproject.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for arduino gas meter, phototransistor arduino, arduino traffic light, cny70 arduino, and arduino phototransistor.
