What’s On My PC – 2010 in Review

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:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Crunchy numbers

Featured imageThe Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 280,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 12 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 343 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 821 posts. There were 795 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 66mb. That’s about 2 pictures per day.

The busiest month of the year was August  with 30,207 views. The most popular post that month was Locating Your Software License Keys.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were Stumbleupon, Google Reader, Bill Mullin’s Weblog – Tech ThoughtsTech-for Everyone and  Google.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for vista will not boot, firefox incognito, vista service pack 2 problems, windows vista service pack 2 problems, and old record player.

These are the posts and pages that got the most views in 2010.

  1. Well, Rick, this (rather neat-o) report merely is a confirmation of what I decided the first time I came across your writings, a long time ago, now – that you and What’s On My PC rate a WOW! – and I have been a daily reader ever since.

    Your relaxed and friendly writing style; the professional grade advice you provide; the new things you discover online and share with us; the new content daily; etc., all add up – in my mind – to “a real gem” of a website, and of a man.

    I know full well the time and effort it takes to earn the meter’s ‘wow’, and I know full well nobody’s paying you to do it. This article provides me the opportunity to give you a tip of my geek hat, and say to you “Congratulations on a job well done!”.


    1. Paul,

      As I have always said, you have been a mentor to me with blogging. As a matter of fact if you stopped blogging tomorrow, I would probably follow suit. Means that much to me…



    1. Steve,

      You know, something tells me that you and I are alot alike. TTC Shelbyville is welcome to use anything on this blog, anytime! I am greatly flattered that I have a Tech School on the blog. Hey, if any of the students ever want to post a guest article, send it my way…

      As always, Thank You…



  2. Crunchy numbers for sure! Great stuff you guys, thanks, looking forward to more this year.

    … and A Happy Great New Year To You All



  3. Wow! I’ll have to repeat what I just said over at Paul’s place:

    “My goodness, those are some awesome stats my friend. I guess posting stuff that’s actually useful has its rewards. Congratulations!

    ‘…If I only had a brain!’ :-D”

    Congratulations my friend, I hope 2011 treats you even better!
