Hello, everyone,  thank you very much for your great contribution to our haiku network  activities.

We would like to review how our  blog did in 2010, thanks to the information below by WordPress.com. 

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:

The average container ship can carry about 4,500 containers. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2010. If each view were a shipping container, your blog would have filled about 4 fully loaded ships.

In 2010, there were 62 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 97 posts. There were 311 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 292mb. That’s about 6 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was December 4th with 211 views. The most popular post that day was Haiku at the 12th HIA Haiku Contest (2010): the Results.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were magyar-haiku.blogspot.com, zenspeug.blogspot.com, facebook.com, haikubanditsociety.blogspot.com, and mail.yahoo.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for lotus flower, akita haiku, peach trees in blossom, peach blossom, and akita international haiku network.

  1. Congratulations on such fine viewing figures, and Happy New Year!

    Although most of us are still in cold weather, I thought I’d share this haiku just came in with the results.
