As I mentioned over on the Civil War 150 blog earlier today, WordPress sent all blog owners a “2010 in Review” stats report by email. One of the options in the email is to post the content to your blog, so I’m going to post portions of the review below. I have no idea whether this information will be of interest to anyone other than stats and metadata geeks like me, but hopefully some of you will find it worth reading.
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 Fresher than ever.
