The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,500 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

    Interesting, Eric. I got the following:

    The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 39,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 14 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

    But then it said:

    In 2011, there were 44 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 593 posts.

    Which is not true at all. M.A. has 912 posts in all, over 200 posted in 2011.

    The report finishes, though, with this:

    The busiest day of the year was June 26th with 569 views. The most popular post that day was An Oft-Neglected Scam Which Needs Attention.

    Both of these are true, too. So what gives with the wrong post counts? I have no idea.

    • I don’t know what the errors are all about with your synopsis, but WOW! I sure would have liked to have had 39,000 visitors to my blog. 🙂

        When a post on your blog ranks #5 or #6 in a Google search for “sylvia browne fraud,” and when that post contains the only link to a WebCite cached version of a Skeptical Enquirer article documenting it, you’re going to get a few hits.

        For a long time, something like 1/3 of my total blog traffic is for that one post. That proportion has changed a bit over the last several months, but it remains very popular.

        • Yeah, one good article can definitely bring up the visitor count, especially if some other popular site picks you up and links to you. I’ve had this happen a few times on my technical Nocturnal Slacker v1.0 blog.

    Neat stuff Eric!!! I thought this was pretty hilarious:

    “Some visitors came searching, mostly for i love my brother, jim morrison fat, little christmas tree, case histories pbs, and lettuce.”

    I am sure that is how they found your blog Rofl
