Got this message in an email from the nice folks from WordPress. The Blog-Health-o-Meter is a bit like getting a star from a teacher, but it’s still a nice touch the way they put it all together.
I think what has worked well with the Jim Carrey post is the image of that marvelous final scene in The Truman Show. It’s also good that the post was noted because the link wasn’t pointing to the Atlantic article. Link is now fixed.
Below is the complete WordPress message:
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
