Looking Forward to 2011... and Back at 2010

2010 marks my first full year of blogging here. I have to say, blogging is such a unique challenge, but it's so interesting to be a part of the blogging community.

In 2010 I posted 223 times, which I think is pretty good. Most of the time, I try to post four or five times a week - ideally, Monday through Friday with a break on weekends. I almost never post twice in the same day because I like to space things out. Most blogging sites say the more you post, the better, but for me, I've found I tend to get the most feedback and interesting comments if I leave a post at the top for a day or two.

As I write this, my most popular post is from March of 2010: "The Esteem, A Fully Implantable Hearing Aid, Gets FDA Approval." This post regularly gets hundreds of page views a week or even each day. I often wish I had more information about the Esteem for people who are interested in it. If anyone would like to talk on my blog about their personal experiences with the Esteem, I would gladly post your thoughts as a guest post.

According to the Blogger Stats about my blog, most people searching for keywords come to my blog from Google. Most people who come are searching for Androids apps for the deaf, information about tinnitus and yes, again, information about the Esteem. Interestingly, I can see from the stats that many Googlers are using Google via their Android-powered phones, but Blogger's Stats doesn't tell me the percentage. I'm happy I have a high portion of Linux readers - 13% of you are using a flavor of Linux and an additional 1% some other type of Unix.

Unfortunately I never seem to get any funny or off-the-wall searches for my blog like others do. Darn - it would make for some good end-of-the-year laughs. :) See you in 2011!


  1. I have not had any funny or rude word searches either when it comes to finding my blog.

    Have a Happy New Year.

  2. I've had a few search terms that were a bit strange, but nothing too crazy. I never really looked at them until you mentioned it, they are interesting to read! 223- that's a lot. I always look forward to your posts, but I certainly don't have the motivation to post that much! Keep 'em coming :)

  3. It was very nice blog and got lots of information .Thanks
