Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 44,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 44 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 59 posts. There were 57 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 4mb. That’s about 1 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was March 12th with 909 views. The most popular post that day was 10 signs that you work in computer forensics.

Where did they come from?
