I got this in my email the other day:
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:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 29,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 122 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 178 posts. There were 213 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 9mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was November 23rd with 237 views. The most popular post that day was Aunt Charlotte.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were z-beads.com, blogger.com, das-unikal.blogspot.com, katemckinnon.wordpress.com, and strandsofbeads.blogspot.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for beaded beads, z beads, zbeads, peyote stitch, and z-beads blog.

CIM – Creation Is Messy October 2009
So, I’m doing well, huh? That’s what WordPress told me last week. Part of me does wonder, considering the friendly nature of WordPress, if they didn’t give every single blogger a Wow on the Blog Health-O-Meter even if they didn’t really deserve it. It isn’t that I can think of any one person who wouldn’t. Well, besides me.
After all, I’m not very interesting. I don’t travel to exciting places, eat interesting food (except maybe the persimmon – and I should tell you that I was not in the least impressed – I think it may have been over or under ripe) or have big flashy ideas for world peace or politics. I’m extremely protective of my privacy and the privacy of those in my life, so I keep the majority of what happens or what is said to me or what I think about day to day, to myself. Really, the only interesting thing about me is the beads. I’m more than fine with that, because that’s the one aspect of my life I’m happy to tell you about.
I frequently, seriously consider deleting this thing. If I’m not going to use it to share my opinions about current events, make fun of famous people, air out my dirty laundry or make snide comments about my peers and perceived competition, why should I bother? If I don’t post for several days, I feel it nagging at me. The reason for my absence is usually because I’m doing something, and I don’t have time to sit down and tell you all about it. I’m more of a do-er than a talk-er. So I guess 30,000+ views is nothing to sneeze at. Even if you’re only here for the beads.
Speaking of which – I have some new ideas but I must finish up my made to orders first. There likely won’t be anything on Etsy next week while I finish them up. And I’m trying to figure out whether I should take some time to work with boro or not. My big kiln is acting kind of weird, and partly why I’ve been putting off another boro binge – it’s been almost a year since the last one. I guess we’ll see what happens.
Thanks for stopping in!
