I had written an ‘April Fool’ post a few days ago that was scheduled to appear here just after midnight.
However, I read it again and decided it just wasn’t that funny. So it’s gone. As such, you’ll have to make do with a repeat (kind of) instead.
The graphic below shows the 30 most popular posts on this blog as voted for read by you, dear reader, in the first quarter of this year.

I’ve already posted three articles about my blog statistics for 2010. You may well be relieved to hear that this is the final one! This is simply a graph comparing the number of page views each week in 2010 compared with 2009.
2010 saw 53,501 page views (23,989 in 2009).

Unsurprisingly, given the OU examination timetable for ED209 and DD303, October was the busiest month with 13,479 views.
Thanks for visiting everyone – and I’m looking forward to (virtually) seeing you all again in 2011.

Ever since I moved this blog from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress environment just after the ED209 exam last October (through 123-reg.co.uk,) I’ve started to look more closely at the stats that I can generate. It’s interesting to see how many people end up here and where they came from! This week has seen the number of page views of the blog exceed 600 for the first time this year, which tracking back has only happened a few times before.
