I’m not a year-end review kind of person. And honestly, I’m a little relieved to wave farewell to 2010. The year that time will forget. Even if I need to drink a lot to make that happen. Erm, I mean, the stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com helpfully mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a summary of its overall blog health. They concluded “wow”, which seems a bit exaggerated. I’m a skeptical geek who wants to know the label and numbers that go into each Blog-o-Meter rating.
Some bloggers post daily about the miles they run and the food they eat and get 843 comments per post. I post a few times a week about nothing and although my commentors are witty and intelligent, I don’t draw in a huge number of participators – the classic measure of blog success. I’m certainly not a “wow” by conventional standards. But I’ll take it.
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
