“The stats helper monkeys at 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.

Crunchy numbers

Featured imageAbout 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 52 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 89 posts. There were 551 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 780mb. That’s about 2 pictures per day.

The busiest day of the year was April 27th with 1589 views. The most popular post that day was Cinco De Mayo Crispy Fish Tacos.

  1. Wow! What a great year for you and I have to say the fish tacos are the best! We just made them again last week. Thanks for sharing . Have a great New Year!

  2. Amazing!!! Think of the lives you have touched if that is just one of your years. You are an awesome contributor and I am so proud!!! I wish I could eat my screen for lunch those taco’s look fabulous!

  3. Adagio,

    Since you’re into computations on this blog entry I decided to look up “Italian” and “Handful” on the computational knowledge engine and some interesting things popped up.

    Did you know a “handful” equals two mouthfuls? So your blog is not only one full handful, which we knew, but two full mouthfuls!

    Also, the country of San Marino can’t hold a candle to your blog. San Marino has the 7th most Italian speaking people in the world at 25,000. That means your blog has more views than San Marino has Italian speakers. That’s what I’m talking about…

    Keep up the great work.
