Thom’s HeadSpace 2010 in review

I was going to find out all this info for myself but then WordPress went and packaged it all up for me in an email. You didn’t get that on Windows Live Spaces!

I migrated from Spaces at the end of September so these stats are probably a bit squiffy. I had a great year blog-wise and have made loads of connections with other IT Pros through the various events I’ve been going to and on twitter too. Another highlight was being nominated for the IT Pro Blogger of the Year at the Computer Weekly Blog Awards. That came as a really big surprise and thanks to everyone who supported me (even though a did fall a few votes short of being the winner). Hopefully this blog will continue to grow in 2011, become a bit less sporadic and rambling, and continue being of use to whoever stumbles across it. I’m participating in the WordPress Post A Week challenge so there should be at least 52 posts this year.

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

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads This blog is doing awesome!. (Ed. I have no idea what this actually means!)
