    What does that say that “satin and lace” got the most views? What do you think people are searching for? Hmm…. My top post is “shrinky dinks earrings” or shrinky dinks in just about any form. lol

  2. 4 fully loaded ships, γρεατ!. You have become a ship owner. Blogging can lead to many things.
    How did you get this information?

    • Birgitte, this was in an e-mail from WordPress.

  3. I got that email too – I guess all of us WordPress folks did? That translated into a pretty cool looking blog post. My most viewed post was “Morning Walk” – from my vacation in Maine. Top searches had to do with my baby bunnies!

  5. I also got the ‘2010 in Review’ email from WP. However, when I checked their stats against the numbers on my blog, some things didn’t jive (for example, WP says I only had 199 posts in 2010 when I had 203…). I was also surprised at what post received the most views…again, suspect. Cool to get a ‘whole picture’ look, though. Makes me realize just how slack I’ve been these last 7 months! I will try harder in 2011, for sure!

    • I didn’t check to see if the number of actual posts was the same as what WP said it was.
      The Satin & Lace post didn’t actually get 171 views, those are the total views for that day, which I guess got the most views in one day all year. I just happened to post Satin & Lace that day, that’s why it was he most popular post.
