A Year Later- A quick review

Posted on March 22, 2012


It had been roughly be a year since I first started this blog (19th of march 2011) and it has been a interesting year here. I have had roughly 67,000 page views though how many actual visitors this represents or unique visitors is unknown (wordpress stats are so so). In that time I have had 514 comments on 263 posts, though only 289 are actually comments instead of pings. Top sources of visitors:

For a blog that started out with very little direction or purpose it sure has had some changes. I have focused heavily on working conditions. I have also been very involved in publishing issues as well. Of course lots of random posts as well and a recent focus on other archaeology blogs.

Hope the next year is as interesting.
