I have to say, I love my blog.  It isn’t that I love my writing or anything like that, put I enjoy putting my thoughts down on ‘paper’.  I love responding to comments and reading the blogs of others.  My new hobby is the best!

So, I wanted to share some of my stats from my first year of blogging.  Keep in mind, my numbers are not nearly as impressive as many new blogs are, but I am so glad I get more than 2 views a day.  I wrote my first post on March 4th, and the following are my stats from that date until the end of the 2010.  (I cannot give page views or bounce rate stats as my google analytics code was messed up for many months, and double recorded page views.)

Visits:  31,050

Visitors:  20,098

Search Engine traffic:  36%  (Google, I hate how you won’t give me page rank, but I love how you give me traffic.)

Average time on site:  2 minutes, 39 seconds (please, stay longer in 2011!)

Most popular post:  Tax Avoidance, Double Irish and Dutch Sandwiches, with 2951 visits. Thank you Dilbert!

Top 5 referrers, besides Feedburner, Reddit, etc:
Budgeting In The Fun Stuff
Grumpy Rumblings of the Untenured
Money Reasons
Len Penzo dot Com
Free Money Finance
(Thank you so much guys. You have done more than just refer traffic, I appreciate all the support you have given the last year also.)

I look so forward to 2011 as I learn more about writing.  Again, I wish everyone a wonderful New Year, and I want to give a big thank you to every reader that stopped by, and also to everyone who took the time to comment.
