About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 33,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 118 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1296 posts. There were 25 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 2mb. That’s about 2 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was March 9th with 266 views. The most popular post that day was Wowio – Download Kurt Vonnegut’s Books for Free.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were twitter.com, google.co.uk, stumbleupon.com, Google Reader, and blogger.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for karate kid, peony, story map, pittsburgh penguins, and the princess who saved herself.
