2010 in review

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:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Crunchy numbers

Featured image

About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 30,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.


In 2010, there were 187 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 426 posts. There were 925 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 148mb. That’s about 3 pictures per day.

The busiest day of the year was April 26th with 348 views. The most popular post that day was The Egg Test – Question 10.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, WordPress Dashboard, mail.yahoo.com, mail.live.com, and animal-job.co.uk.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for cretan animal welfare, cretan animal welfare group, featherless parrot, dog walking, and cawg.

Admin Notes!

Hello everyone!

We would like to thank you on behalf of CAWG for the lovely comments people are leaving and urge you to leave more, however unworthy they seem to you, the feedback means a lot to the volunteers!

However, we would like to ask you to send any long enquiries through the CAWG email


 rather than posting them as comments on the blog.

Thank you once again for your support!
