Statistics just in via my hosting service: this little ol’ blog you’re currently reading was viewed on average 52,000 times a week across 2011. If it was a concert at the 2,700-seat Sydney Opera House, it would take a week crammed with 19 sold-out performances for that many people to see it – which sounds like a really good week at the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular, to put a local spin on the numbers.
In 2011, there were 398 new posts, growing the total archive to 820 posts. The busiest day of the year was October 26th with – get ready – 34,500 views! The most popular post that day was History Meets Mystery in Moscow.
While most visitors came from the United States, the UK and Canada were not too far behind. Plus, now I’ve got the stats to back up what I’ve known for so long: I’m huge in Asia.
So that’s the year in blogging. Many thanks to you, faithful readers, for coming back again and again and continuing to share my curiosity. Stay tuned for a few tweaks and treats to come in 2012.
