The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepare annual reports for blogs. I really like this service, and here’s a summary of what it said.
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 460,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 20 days for that many people to see it.
In 2013, there were 147 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 241 posts. There were 688 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 268 MB. That’s about 2 pictures per day.
The busiest day of the year was October 1st with 3,681 views. The most popular post that day was Mexican Women’s Mitochondrial DNA Primarily Native American.
These are the posts that received the most views in 2013.
- 1 Proving Native American Ancestry Using DNA
- 2 Ancestry’s Mythical Admixture Percentages

I started this blog in June 2012, so 2013 was the first complete year. In 2013, I posted 94 articles and the blog received about 86,000 views, which would translate to about 172,000 on an annualized basis.
These numbers don’t include people who read the blog via RSS feeds or though e-mails. They would account for another half a million or so a year.
In 2013, I added 147 new articles for a total of 241, and there were 460,000 views, which, on an annual basis, increased 267%. Between these views and the e-mail and RSS subscriptions, we’re looking at about a million viewers in 2013. Not bad for a topic I wasn’t sure would be popular!
Thank you one and all. I know we’re going to have a stellar 2014 together!
