the information below came to me from WordPress…
this is the first time I have received anything like this from them…although they do a great running stat page for WordPress bloggers on a daily basis…
the bit about the Louvre Museum under Crunchy Numbers is my favorite…
so in keeping with my word of the year “AUTHENTIC” … I thought I would share…not spending lots of time thinking should I or shouldn’t I…
WordPress made it easy peasy offering a link to click creating this blogblogblog post….their verbage is within quotes and in a lighter font below…
“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:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 130,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 6 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 282 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1288 posts.
The busiest day of the year was August 3rd with 1,124 views. The most popular post that day was Zipper Roses.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were blogger.com, ahappystamper.blogspot.com, Google Reader, aliceandcamilla.blogspot.com, and mail.yahoo.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for zentangle, zurab tsereteli, zentangles, frida kahlo, and zentangle ideas.

thank you WordPress for a really fun year…and to all that come to visit and spend some of your precious time…many many thanks…
in my view photos are a big part of the fun of blogging…
a bit of a visual record of this creative journey…
these two little samplers were made using a Photoshop Elements Mosaic feature…
below are a few of my observations on the
ATTRACTIONS in 2010
that WordPress reported on above…
1 Zipper Roses…I really like my metal zipper post here better
2 Bluebell Paradise…it was a Bluebell kind of April last year and this Bluebell post made the WordPress Freshly Pressed page in April = Wowee!
3 Inchie Ornament Tutorial …who knew so many people could have so much fun with little one inch cubes…thanks once again to Shelly Rae Wood for inspiring me and so many others!
4 Mr Zentangles…funny that this Zentangle/Doodle post is at the top out of almost eighteen on my Magpie’s Nest blog…certainly NOT the best representation of my doodling efforts
5 Christmas Postcards for You … wonder what made these so visited amongst the Freebies I have offered over the last three years?
WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? … Many Many Thanks to Angela’s Happy Stamper and Margaret’s Alice and Camilla for sending a good number of visitors my way…how nice is that!!!
Here’s to another year of having fun in the land of blog…with or without stats…as we like to say about birthdays “it’s only a number” 🙂
