2010 blog stats

Thanks to all the readers of Infrascape Design, 2010 was a very good year! A perk of being part of wordpress is that they compiled this end-of-the-year review. The main reason why I’m sharing this is wordpress’s ‘container ship’ analogy for blog visitors (see below). With about 16,000 views, my blog would fit on a Malaccamax ship if each visit was a TEU.
Please stay tuned, got posts in the works about: post-carbon urban scenarios, peak-travel, the infrastructure gap, resilient cities, sustainability/urbanism book reviews, student work from fall 2010, and links to a few of my lectures.

2010 year in blogging

Crunchy numbers

Featured imageThe average container ship can carry about 4,500 containers. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2010. If each view were a shipping container, your blog would have filled about 4 fully loaded ships.

In 2010, there were 58 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 71 posts. There were 123 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 184mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was March 18th with 286 views. The most popular post that day was Scaling Gehry’s toxic fish.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were archinect.com, landscapeandurbanism.blogspot.com, infranetlab.org, facebook.com, and landezine.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for infrascape, urban density, owens lake, the view from the road, and michael heizer.
