The following is a WordPress post for my blog, edited by me with editorials (like this one) in italics.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,300 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Why did I remove the link?  It drastically slowed down my browser (Firefox) and repeatedly crashed it.  I’m finishing this post in Internet Explorer.  Here’s the text I copied and pasted, saving in multiple drafts between crashes:

2011 in blogging

Happy New Year from WordPress.com!

To kick off the new year, we’d like to share with you data on your blog’s activity in 2011. You may start scrolling!

Crunchy numbers

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,300 times in 2011.  If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

In 2011, there were 43 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 225 posts.  There were 861 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 1gb.  That’s about 2 pictures per day.

The busiest day of the year was August 21st with 236 views.  The most popular post that day was Bolder & Fresher Tour at Westbury recap.

How did they find you?

Some visitors came searching, mostly for joyce cooling, empty stage, wwe headquarters, ken navarro, and steve scales.

What is people’s fascination with a picture of an empty Parsons Complex auditorium stage that I put in my 2008 Smooth Jazz for Scholars recap?

Where did they come from?

Most visitors came from The United States. Canada & Italy were not far behind.

Here are the stats I screencapped before Firefox crashed one time too many:

People also visited from other continents, but I can’t risk crashing my browser again to see their stats.

Perhaps you could follow their blog or send them a thank you note?

Thank you, even if you disagreed with me.  And thank you, Johnny Dollar, for linking to the recap.  It was the only one online.  Not even Newsday wrote about the show.

Attractions in 2011

These are the posts that got the most views in 2011.

Some of your most popular posts were written before 2011. Your writing has staying power! Consider writing about those topics again.

I don’t know why that FBN post continues to get attention.  Cablevision added it in November 2009.

As always, thank you very much for visiting.  Happy 2012!
