2010 in (blog) review

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 [they generated it, I added a few comments further below]:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads This blog is on fire!.

Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2010. That’s about 29 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 32 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 122 posts. There were 15 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 10mb. That’s about a picture per month.

The busiest day of the year was September 27th with 104 views. The most popular post that day was 72010 SemWebTech lectures 3+4: Ontology Engineering Top-down and Bottom-up.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were meteck.org, en.wordpress.com, teaching.case.unibz.it, netvibes.com, and facebook.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for ontology, aardappeleters, concept map template, ontologies, and philosophy of computer science.

My additions to the WordPress generated summary:

The top 5 of the posts written in 2010 (given that none of the above is):

  1. Easy widget for keeping track of visited countries
  2. South African women on leadership in science, technology and innovation
  3. African Wildlife Ontology tutorial ontologies
  4. From the Description Logics Workshop 2010, Waterloo
  5. The complexity of… coffee

This blog is nearing its 5 year existence in April 2011, so I will refrain from reflections for the moment. Since it seems to be going quite well with the blog–well, relatively for a “dull sci/tech” blog, as some would categorise it–I have not made any particular new year’s resolutions for it other than continuing with what I was doing already anyway. On the very short term, I probably will not post much these weeks because I will be moving to South Africa and start with a new job at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

Best wishes for the new year to all my dear readers and [on-/off-]line commenters!
