According to WordPress’s automatically generated text, “The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.” I think it was more likely done automatically and digitally. Also that if it has to be done by hypothetical sentient beings I prefer helper monkeys to Tumblr’s conceit of tumblrbeasts. Or is it tumblbeasts? I’ve forgotten.
They additionally provided a button for me to push to post the report to my blog. I pushed it. This post is the result. But now I’m going through and changing most of the text to make it bearable. ;-) I’ll leave the picture. It took me a while to realise that the upward-pointing arrows are meant to be firework rockets:
Along with the animated fireworks the report contains such information as
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,900 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
I’m sure that’s helpful if you make a habit of travelling on tube trains in New York. If not . . . well apparently their trains hold quite a lot of people.
To be honest, there isn’t a a lot for the report to report, since for various reasons I only wrote a handful of posts in 2011. It’s still quite interesting though, and doesn’t take long to read. You get to find out what the most common search terms were that brought people here and suchlike. Some are surprising.
