2010 in review

This just in from WordPress. Fascinating. I had no idea I was being evaluated this way. Hope I don’t freeze up with performance anxiety and cave in 2011.

The summary raises more questions than it answers. Why was April 22 such a popular date for me? Who are those people who found their way to my blog after doing searches on Descartian philosophy, superheroes as social commentary, and thigmotactile? And how many more hits would I have gotten if I’d used the correct form, thigmotactic?


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!
