2011 Year in Review In Blogging

So WordPress (wow, WordPress comes up as misspelled – even on their own site) sent out this interesting e-mail the other day highlighting the “Year in Blogging” for Ourlittlehippie.com. Here’s the highlights of the highlights…and thank you for showing us such tremendous support during this past year through the blogosphere!

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2011. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it. In 2011, there were 145 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 700 posts. There were 582 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 67mb. That’s about 2 pictures per day. The busiest day of the year was February 19th with 2,503 views. The most popular post that day was Liam.

The top referring sites in 2011 were:

  • facebook.com
  • toddnjenifermoss.blogspot.com

Most visitors came from The United States. Canada & Israel were not far behind. Other countries that visited the site include: Brazil, South Africa, Algeria, Senegal, Turkey, Sweden, the UK, Russia, Germany, the UAE, India, South Korea, Vietnam, Australia, and New Zealand.
