Where did they come from?

    This was an interesting link that WordPress sent me via email today. Thought I would share it with all of you. Thanks for stopping by as always. Happy New Year! 🙂


  2. What a fun way to review the year. Happy New Year to you.

    This was fun, I don’t remember them sending me this link last year. Happy New Year to you too! 🙂


  3. Wow–you really did some research! How interesting too. I have been away from blogging land for a while enjoying the holidays. Since I was at home this year (being retired) I was able to enjoy the decorations so much. I was ready for them to end I suppose, and I am really ready to be back in the yard—but that will have to wait a bit! 🙂 Do you still have snow?

    Not really, wordpress did all the legwork for me Linda. It was fun to share it with you guys though. Glad you were able to enjoy your holidays. Yep it will be a bit before we are able to enjoy the yard again. It’s cold here but the snow if gone finally. 🙂


  4. Wow! That’s amazing how many people came to visit you, Racquel. I don’t have the faintest clue how to figure this out for mine. I like the new clean look of your site!

    Pretty cool huh? This was something that WordPress created for me. Thanks Rose, I bet you had even more visitors than me. 🙂


  5. A cool and interesting way to do your end of year review. Here’s to an ever healthier 2011. 🙂 ~~Dee

    Thanks Dee, I was lucky that WordPress did all the work for me. 🙂


  6. That’s neat to know those statistics. I haven’t got a clue about some of those categories. I get a lot less traffic than you tho!
    Happy (belated) New Year too. Hope it’s off to a good start Racquel.

    Thanks Kathleen. This was something that WordPress came up with, totally baffled me too. Happy Belated New Year to you too! It’s been a bit hectic so far but hope it calms down soon. 🙂


  7. It was fun reading about your statistics. Blogspot doesn’t do that. I have a free stat meter account, but am over my maximum allowed entries. I wonder if I paid the $5.00 a month if it would provide the yearly info like that.

    Yep I don’t remember WordPress doing this last year but it was fun huh? 🙂
