2010 in Numbers
The busiest day of the year was November 3rd with 223 views. The most popular post that day was A Tribute to Russ Feingold, 1992-2010.
The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, twitter.com, grabyourfork.blogspot.com, chowhound.chow.com, and yelp.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for richard blumenthal (34), vietnam war medals (32), worcester v. georgia (29), grenades (29), and shutter island schizophrenia (20). Other less frequent, but more humorous and opinionated, search terms included: estate tax is bullshit (9), “hate true blood” (2), and home theater sucks (2).

Resolution for 2011
Toward the end of 2010 I became somewhat delinquent in posting. Therefore, I will set up a new incentive structure for myself (David) to post semi-regularly. I pledge to post at least twice each month. If I fail to post at least once within the first 15 days of any given month, I will pay $10 to the first person who calls me out on this by posting on my Facebook wall (you will have to friend me first, if we are not already friends). If I fail to post at least once between the 16th and the end of any given month, I will pay $10 to the first person who calls me out on my Facebook wall.
Thanks everyone for reading, commenting, and generally making this blog a success over the past year!
