2010 in review – Endurance

January 10, 2011

Recently the folks at WordPress sent out a challenge to their community, post something every day…one word…wow…could we do that? Well we’re already a couple weeks into 2011 but perhaps we can catch up?

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

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Fresher than ever.

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2010. That’s about 8 full 747s.

 

In 2010, there were 109 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 154 posts. There were 57 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 72mb. That’s about a picture per week.

The busiest day of the year was June 26th with 110 views. The most popular post that day was A conversation.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, twitter.com, shadow-project.org, weareteachers.com, and lisnews.org.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for court’s kids, courtskids.org, courtney bunfill, court for kids, and kids court.

Readers Reflect: For the Love of Stories March 2010

 

I guess really it all comes down to endurance. It isn’t difficult really, just more about carving out a little time each day and sharing more with our Court’s Kids community this year. My struggle, as is with many, is to make sure we’re not just posting for the sake of posting but sharing something fun, meaningful, exciting, and most of all worth reading. Funny, even though I’ve kept my day job and chase a toddler in my off time, I’m more worried about giving you something of significance to read than trying to find time to write it. Although I’m not the only mom juggling out there. Some of our supporters are moms of children with special needs and do this every day.

Our goals are big this year, last year we donated over 10,000 books, there are plenty of schools in need of books so my hope is there won’t be a shortage of topics!  So, I’ll close for now, I don’t want to give everything away tonight 🙂 Stay tuned for updates on our partner schools and early childhood intervention programs and how Court’s Kids (with your help) provides books and materials to children with special needs.

Little by little,

Kiki
