An excellent 2011 to our readers (and their families and friends, if they would like)!

Shortly in the New Year, I received an email from our host, WordPress, about this blog. They examine the various statistics and judge the ‘health’ of the blog. In our case, it was ‘Minty fresh’ explained as: ‘We think you did great!’.

Here are some facts, also known as:

Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2010. That’s about 4 full 747s.

In 2010, you wrote 10 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 57 posts. You uploaded 19 pictures, taking up a total of 2mb. That’s about 2 pictures per month.

Your busiest day of the year was March 22nd with 34 views. The most popular post that day was 16 February: Royal Institute of Philosophy Lecture.


Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were keele.ac.uk, spireatkeeleuniversity.blogspot.com, philosophyexperiments.com, royalinstitutephilosophy.org, and statistics.bestproceed.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for keele hall, italian garden, world philosophy day 2010, james tartaglia, and great hall.

In spite of all these, the first semester of the academic year was so busy, there was no time to post the usual announcements about the Philosophy events we organised at Keele. I will try to catch up in the next few days by posting a summary of what went on between September and December 2010.
