The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for my blog. I must admit my posts draw few comments. However I am quite happy with the traffic that comes by. I am particularly pleased that it comes from people in many nations.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,400 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
In 2011, there were 80 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 453 posts. The busiest day of the year was July 2nd with 71 views. The most popular post that day was The Child Must Suffer. Interestingly this was a 2009 post about the optimization of child development. I wonder what provoked the interest on that day? Nonetheless it shows that posts can be relevant to readers long after they have been posted.
