From the Left 2010 in Review

Sunday, January 2, 2011

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how From the Left did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of my overall blog health.

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads: WOW!

Crunching the Numbers

Featured imageThe Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. From the Left was viewed about 492,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 14 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 441 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 4344 posts. There were 456 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 25mb. That’s about 1 pictures per day.

The busiest day of the year was July 14th with 5,289 views. The most popular post that day was Those Darn Kids!.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were: stumbleupon.com, theimmoralminority.blogspot.com, twitter.com, facebook.com, blogsearch.google.com, and, justajeepguydc.blogspot.com.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by and visit and a special thanks to everyone who commented. From the Left is a successful blog because of you.

    Well done! You’ve basically reached a half-a-million readers a year. That’s a medium sized US city. I remember the post “Those Darn Kids.” So funny and snarky. Keep up the good work. 2011 should have gobs of material to glean from.

    Very impressive, Christopher! Happy New Year to you. When are you leaving for California? I hope the move is happening. The northeast isn’t a good fit for you and Jim. It’s too cold and sunless back there. California is a fiscal mess but it’s still warm and sunny and home prices are at record lows.

    Looking forward to what you plan to do with year. I don’t comment every day but you know I check in several time times a week. Like Brig said, keep up the good work.

    Congrats! I read overall blog traffic is declining but yours is climbing so you’re delivering the content people want to see. Have you ever considered having an occasional guest writer (hint, hint) do something for you? If you decide to let someone contribute I would be interested. I’m too lazy to try and launch my own blog. Let me know!

    Good for you, dude!

    Keep going after the bad guys in 2011 and take no prisoners. All these incoming Republican douchebags are on notice.

    But…. when do we get the award money?🙂

    This blog really is an excellent source of informed opinion. I congratulate you on an excellent year. As the DINOcrats and the Plutobricuns continue to dismantle this country, I expect that your views will continue to rise.

    This is precisely why President Obama sought the so-called “Internet Kill Switch.”

    Think about it. One blog able to reach 500,000 readers in a single year. If you extrapolate this over thousands of blogs reaching a similar audience, it becomes impossible for the government to maintain their propaganda arm.

    Bloggers single-handedly expose the power merchants. The bloggers are like an Army of men and women pulling the curtain back on the Wizard of Oz. You scare them and I love it.

    Congratulations to you Christopher. It is readily apparent that you devote a lot of time to this blog, much to your readers delight. Thanks for your efforts to keep us informed and I look forward to more cutting edge reporting From the Left.

    Concur with the above remarks! You’ve always welcomed me and provided interesting, informative and sometimes riotous information. I have been with you from the start. Keep up the superb blogging.

    Woo Hoo! ^5^! Way to go!

    I originally started Reconstitution out on a British host because I feared the monkey would throw a switch. I am seriously thinking of relocating it again. It, unlike me, can go anywhere.
