2010 in review

Oh, I’m sure all the rest of you received a similar email to the one below, but I thought it was interesting anyway. It shows activity on my blog last year. Other than being tired of the random hit surges from alphainventions, I like seeing the information. (On browsing the WordPress help comments, I’m not the only one with this complaint.) Curious to find that people searching for specific topics land repeatedly on my posts for Shoshone petroglyphs, WACYPAA, and indian blue cdib cards. The high hits on Never Be Content is a random alphainventions day, and I’m pretty sure the number does not represent real people.

Reviewing these results give me a better idea for how I should think about posts in the future; keep potential searchwords in mind and write accordingly. Another interesting note is that ever since I posted Seven Color Crystal Bolls I have been getting two or three hits a day every single day, based on that search phrase! Really! Now THAT is funny.

Anyway, this is from WordPress:
