First, Happy New Year! And second, thanks to all the readers and commenters for making this website more successful than I ever thought it would be when I started it on my editor’s advice.
Now, the stats, thoughtfully compiled by WordPress. Click to enlarge:
The numbers (somebody messed up and used the word “blog”). The average is about 14,800 views per day:
The links (and lynx):
The “lynx” connection mystifies me. Other perennial favorite search terms are “penis size” (from a post that gave average penis sizes of human males in the world’s countries) and “cat penis.” LOL!
Where do you come from?
Look at all those Aussie readers! Good on ya, mates.
Who commented the most? No surprises here: Dominic, Diane G., Ben, Torbjörn, and Icthyic.
Special thanks to those ardent commenters! I expect that Baihu was the cat mentioned most often on the site.
And. . . the most popular posts. The “longest cell” post was picked up by Reddit, and for some reason the Russian equivalent of Reddit was fascinated by the treehoppers. My own favorite among these was the Mason Crumpacker post.
As far as I can see, it was a very good year.
