2010 in review – stats from WordPress

Hello there and a very happy 2011 to you all.

I got this e-mail from WordPress last night which shows how my blog did last year so thought I would share it with you and say a big thanks to all of you for visiting and especially to those people who have linked to me (you get a special mention a bit further on!) I am very pleased that the Blog Health o-Meter reads ‘WOW’ and thank you all for making this happen.

Like most of you who blog I started this little venture 3 years ago not knowing what would happen, I have met so many wonderful, creative people through the blog and visiting other people’s blogs and absolutely love being part of this community. It spurs me on to finish things knowing I need something to post about each week and I get so many ideas from everyone! I have also participated in lots of exchanges so I have lots of lovely new creations in my home as well as all the virtual pleasure from seeing what you all do. Thank you to everyone who makes blogging such fun!

“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:
