The high-tech helper monkeys at WordPress.com did a review on how Fieryhalo did in 2010 and sent me this multi-level summary of overall blog health. I’m not sure I trust the meter but the stats are interesting. Since Fieryhalo only started flying a little more than a year ago, I thought you might like to see how your visits are adding up.
“The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.”
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 6,300 times in 2010. That’s about 15 full 747s.
In 2010, there were 38 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 39 posts. There were 240 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 157mb. That’s about 5 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was July 1st with 236 views. The most popular post that day was Reality.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were jacksonfamilymusic.com, facebook.com, mail.yahoo.com, android-vs-ipad.co.cc, and jaimieteekell.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for fieryhalo, barefeet, red apple tree, underwear, and clergyman. (Yes, you read it right, underwear. We are shameless here, are we not?)

Cool huh? I was a little surprised “Bite Me!” wasn’t a top-fiver. I also found that most of my visitors aren’t bloggers and don’t even have a WordPress badge for posting comments but thank you to those of you who sent responses by email this year. The public and private discussions have been very rewarding and really helped me hone Fieryhalo’s focus. If you didn’t already know about my favorite feature, please know that you can have new posts sent directly to your email (top right corner, above the gravatar pic).
We’ve got a lot more hot topics on the radar for 2011. Be watching for iTech Heck & Relationtrips, Hypengyophobia (aka: the responsibility phobia), You Are What You Cheat, and Family Wars. Yes, I’ll also keep posting travel journal blogs from time-to-time just so you know where I am while I’m documenting these shocking social commentaries (definitely not planning to be in Cairo anytime soon… eesh). Singapore and Malaysia, I’ll see you in March.
Can’t wait to read you there!
