2009 in Review – A Few Stats

Top Ten Searches to my Blog:

mike aubrey 324
hebrew alphabet 161
niv revision 134
logos 4 125
en epheso 119
ephesians 2.8.10 94

logos 4 review 64
esv criticism 61

I was slightly disappointed that “mike aubrey mustache” didn’t make it at 54. “ephesians 2.8.10” only hit the top this past week with something that had to do with football. I don’t know. Team sports are lame. But between that search and about 10 other variations on it, I received an extra 400+ hits to my blog. I could just imagine all these football fans arriving here and saying, “What’s is this???” I don’t know. It’s all Greek to me – sports that is, don’t know what’s going on there.

I also always enjoying seeing “esv criticism” hit the top ten, but why “hebrew alphabet” #2 on a Greek blog? Maybe I should write a post on the Greek alphabet…

I love that people regularly click through to climber.org. That’s the best tongue-in-cheek description of climber difficulty rating systems I’ve read – though I may need to remove the “I climb a 5.10.” I’ve been climbing only once this year and I was in so much pain from a rather large puncture wound in my foot that I could barely get my shoes on. I did one route. One route in a year. Terrible. At this point, I’d say the best I could muster in my current lame condition would be an easy 5.8. That’d depressing.

Other than that, my favorite link through is the second one to the brain4.jpg. That was from this post way back in February.

All in all, my stats didn’t grow as much as I hoped they would, but I essentially stopped paying a lot of attention to blogging in October-December. Work has been too busy for posting super often.
