2010 in review – blog update

January 4, 2011

I had no idea WordPress generated a year in review for me…….should check that e-mail account more often really!  I’m amazed at how much this blog has grown in a year – while Caraniel’s Ramblings has been in existence since July 2009, its only really since January 2010 that I really decided to give the blogging thing a serious whirl – its been a really fun year, and a huge learning curve for me.  Thanks for all the support and comments people – here’s to another year!

The stats helper monkeys at mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 82,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 4 days for that many people to see it.


In 2010, there were 199 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 255 posts. There were 62 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 3mb. That’s about 1 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was September 27th with 2,802 views. The most popular post that day was My Top 40 Anime!.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were,,, and

Some visitors came searching, mostly for katanagatari, durarara, hakuouki hekketsuroku, arakawa under the bridge, and winter 2011 anime preview.

Winter Anime 2010! December 2009


Summer Anime Preview – 2010 May 2010


Autumn 2010 Anime Preview! August 2010


Katanagatari – 04 April 2010



Hahaha! I missed having a nice even 200 posts in the year by one!  That freaky day when I got nearly 3000 views has never happened again – rather my usual number of visits hovers between 200-500.  Looks like my preview posts are easily the most popular of my posts – although I’m surprised Katanagatari 4 got so many views since that post is really messy!

Really intrigued to see what next years stats are like now! 😆

    hahaha, I think this is the first yr they are doing this your blog in a yr thing. I had my blog for sometime, and this is the first yr they doing it. Sort of like, a part of the wordpress-upgrading-your-exprience scheme.

    A lot of the searches that came to my site were Hakuouki-based as well. I wonder if that says something about Hakuouki watchers (they read more blog posts?)

    Anyways, Happy New Year. I lift my virtual champagne glass in your honor. Best wishes for blogging this year.

      Perhaps its because there weren’t really many people writing about Hakuouki (because it was so fecking slow!) – I only made one post on the series afterall.

      Happy New Year, a toast to your good self too!

      2010 was a pretty good year, and a real learning curve – here’s to hoping 2011 brings us all even better things!
