As some of you might know, in my day job I’m a numbers guy. I play with numbers, look at numbers, try to find ways to make new numbers with existing numbers (welcome to the world of nonprofit finance). Thus, this entry should come as no surprise since there are a lot of statistics available in the administrative area of WordPress.
However, since I understand that many people are bored by numbers I figured that I’d just lay out some of the statistics that are available regarding JerseySmarts.com. I’m not talking about hits (though I’ll include them below), but rather other somewhat interesting statistics…
Since I merged JerseySmarts.com with Joe’s Journal in November 2009, WordPress has stopped over 140,000 spam comments from being uploaded to the blog. Some 34,000 of those spam comments have been received in the last two months.
There are over 2,100 real comments from fine readers like yourself scattered throughout JerseySmarts.com. Thanks!
As of today, there are 1,951 entries on JerseySmarts.com. A few months ago I read somewhere that some guy won an award for having written the most original blog entries or some such crap. I don’t remember how many entries he had actually written, but I do remember that his number was much lower than mine – I definitely have that guy beat!
Since the merger of JerseySmarts.com and Joe’s Journal back in November 2009, this blog has received over 156,000 hits. While that’s not bad, it’s not where I’d like it to be. Although I guess some better news is that 2010 had more hits than 2009. And, so far, 2011 is on pace to increase the total number of annual hits by over 40% year-over-year. Again, that’s not bad for a personal blog of this size.
There you go – some quick, harmless facts about JerseySmarts.com.
