I subscribe to Simply Stacie’s blog, cause she’s awesome, and today she posted a look at 2010 through her blog’s Google Analytic’s eyes.

I thought it was cool, being in the marketing business, I love stats… or did my love for stats come before marketing and that’s what led me to this field… whatever it is… I thought – WOW, that’s cool… I am so blogging this!

Now my stats aren’t nearly as juicy as hers but for me and this little ole blog, I think we’re doing just dandy thank you.

I had a total of 12,506 Visits from January 1 – December 31, 2010 and from April 1 to April 15, when I switched the look of my blog, the analytics was down. This is good for me, this is way more than double what I had for 2009. What’s even more incredible is that most of the traffic came in from April on! Now that’s success to me!
