2010 in review

Got a cool little e-mail from WordPress with information about this blog’s performance in 2010.  It even had a link to click to share the information, and that’s how this post came to fruition.  Now, while This Ordinary Citizen’s performance in 2010 wasn’t earth-shattering, I am quite happy with it so far.

Thank you to everybody who read, commented, and made suggestions for TOC in 2010.  I hope you will continue to participate in the conversations, and please feel free to share the information with others in this wide world of webbiness.

Here’s the info I received from WordPress:


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:

Healthy blog!

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 4,200 times in 2010. That’s about 10 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 103 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 115 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 77mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was October 15th with 57 views. The most popular post that day was Wanna keep Albany “dead”? Kill the cupcakes..

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, mail.yahoo.com, digg.com, en.wordpress.com, and talk1300.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for ordinary citizen, thisordinarycitizen.wordpress.com, navy sword arch, this ordinary citizen, and this ordinary citizen wade.

    I believe that we desperately need to hear the stories of Ordinary Citizens who make a difference in our lives, our communities and our world.

    Why not be Ordinary?

    Why not make a difference?

    Why not be Ordinary AND make a difference?
