The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,700 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
There is also some flooding in New South Wales and Victoria, and Western Australia is dealing with fires. Australia is not doing well at the moment.
Please give, be it your thoughts, prayers, time or monetary donations. It all counts.
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 3,800 times in 2010. That’s about 9 full 747s.
In 2010, there were 83 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 340 posts. There were 43 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 8mb. That’s about 4 pictures per month.
The busiest day of the year was March 1st with 83 views. The most popular post that day was An Axe to Grind by F. M. Meredith.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were tom-weston.com, pumpupyourbook.com, facebook.com, mail.yahoo.com, and thenewaustralian.blogspot.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for the plot, pub rules, a note from an old acquaintance, gail rutherford, and the things that keep us here carla buckley.

Congratulations to Cheryl who won the e-ARC of Tom Jones Club by Kathy Holmes!
Hello everyone! It’s The Author, here. I’ve finally given Rose the day off to go pamper herself.
Not that she knows how to pamper herself, but I’m sure she is at least catching up on her rest.
I wanted to let you know about things that are coming up for next year.
First, for the end of this year, you will see:
*A clean up of the pages
*Everything linked and links stored on appropriate pages
*A general update/sprucing up thing
For 2011, I’m very excited to be adding these features:
*Amateur Night – Interview characters from books that aren’t published yet (you don’t have to be a published author, either)
*Giveaways! – I am planning on running giveaways here on The Plot because what would be more fun than winning the books these characters came to life in?
If you have any suggestions for features you would like to see here and/or want to get in on Amateur Night, please contact me.
