Preface: Not my 2010, but the blog’s. The new year demands a new post, and I was going to write one about how my blog has faded away, there are no recent readers or comments, and how there have been no visitors to my blog since the last 2 weeks (not counting my own visit, duh, as WP so unfailingly reminds me each time!) etc etc. But then, I received the following summary from WP in my email, and decided to post it instead; it makes my blog look so much better. I only hope that this is not my only post of the year!

The stats helper monkeys at mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
