2010 in review, revisited

I received an email from WordPress today. Apparently WP did a better year in review. It corrected  my number of 2500 posts to almost 1900. I knew that number was skewed, but I couldn’t figure out how to make it accurate based on the stats available to me at the time.

I apologize for misleading you.

Apart from that, this is what they had to say about 2010 at the circus Le Café Witteveen.

I gotta make one note, the live orgasm at the slingshot video was taken down soon after it posted. It got so many hits, because people search for porn more than any other topic. People were desperate to find that dumb video in tact somewhere on the internet.

I mentioned once that the word “shit” gets me a lot of hits. It’s rather funny really.

Here’s the breakdown:
