2010 in Review

I haven’t had much to say lately, but I wanted to thank everyone who has faithfully read and commented here over the past year. I got the following in an email from wordpress.com and thought it was worth sharing. Some of the stats were funny, like my number one search term being “short term memory loss,” some were encouraging, like the fact that about eleven 747 jets worth of people have visited the blog, but ultimately I found myself very grateful and thankful as I read through these stats. Thankful to everyone who reads and comments and has taken an interest in my family’s journey as followers of Christ, thankful that something I started without any intentions or expectations has been so well received and has been a venue for people to share and grow together as believers, and thankful mostly that I can look back over this past year and see how God has changed me, and how he has used this blog and the readers and the commenters¬† in a huge way in my family’s life.

Thank you all for a wonderful year at The Ekklesia in Southern Maine!

So without further ado here are my WordPress stats for 2010:

Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 4,700 times in 2010. That’s about 11 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 129 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 85 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 8mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was December 1st with 241 views. The most popular post that day was October 20th: a guest post.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were Google Reader, facebook.com, alanknox.net, and google.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for short term memory loss, the ekklesia in southern maine, define worship, “the gospel, for here or to go?” keith giles, and ekklesia definition christians.
