2010 in review

7 January, 2011 § 4 Comments

As 2010 comes to a close, I wanted to cover how my blog did in 2010. Here’s a monthly chart of the of the views since I have started blogging:

Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 6,300 times in 2010. That’s about 15 full 747s.

Featured imageSince the initial launch, the blog has been viewed 10,205 times. I am really happy with the direction of the blog and I encourage everyone to make their own blog as it is a great way to grow as a writer and thinker.

In 2010, there were 42 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 146 posts.

The busiest day of the year was December 26th with 107 views. The most popular post that day was My first public Chrome extension – “Multiple Monitor Full Screen”.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were stackoverflow.com, en.wordpress.com, youtube.com, netvibes.com, and google.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for msujaws wordpress, mstest c++, memristor, youtube playlist downloader, and vs2010 c++0x.

Attractions in 2010

These are the posts and pages that got the most views in 2010.


Unit testing MFC with MSTest May 2009


C++0x support in VC10 (VS2010) February 2010


YouTube Playlist Downloader December 2008


The Missing Memristor May 2010


Using Google Mock outside of Google Test May 2009

What’s up next?

My post on Unit testing MFC with MSTest has continued to be one of my highest visited posts. I am looking at creating a follow up post with a sample project, as well as another post about what I’m now using for unit tests (hint: it’s not MSTest).

I will be continuing to write blog posts, and I’m going to try to increase the rate of posting for this blog as the rate of visits has been increasing very healthily over the years.

    Hey Hey Jared! I still do find it funny that I mainly used “msujaws wordpress” as my search term to reach your site. It makes sense; because often times I didn’t have a bookmark and since I got using that search I didn’t bother creating a bookmark. I wasn’t thinking that you’d look to see what search terms reach your site.

    Anyhoo, it is good to see your blog getting plenty of view! I hope you will continue this blog for as long as you can! Every-time I see a new post I am inspired!

      Yeah it definitely shows up in the stats šŸ™‚

      I’ve got no plans to stop blogging. My current plans are to increase the pace of new posts. So as long as you keep visiting, you should see new content.

    Oh good; I like new content. Obviously don’t fall behind with school work or exhaust yourself. I love the website but don’t let it consume you!

  • […] may remember from a previous post that my total visit count for 2010 was over 6,300, whereas the first month of 2011 has brought in […]
