2010 in review
(A word from the folks at WordPress.)
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, even though it just debuted in mid-September. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 115 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 75 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 52mb. That’s about one picture per week.
The busiest day of the year was December 20th. The most popular post that day was 50 LES employees make six-figure salaries.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, nebraska.watchdog.org, mail.yahoo.com, Google Reader, and mail.live.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for deena winter winterized, deenawinter.wordpress.com, deena winter blog, winterized deena winter, and deena winter.

You are doing great! I have read every one of your postings and so has Jeff. You are making a difference in this community and we are letting folks know that they should find you and read you. Best reporting I’ve seen in Lincoln since I returned here in 1994. Keep going – I hope you can figure out the financial support situation. It’s very discouraging to live in a town where the newspaper doesn’t conform to the standards of journalism as I studied them so many years ago at UNL.
Deena, just keep up the good work. I really enjoy your blog, I read it daily. Happy New Year!
