It was always my hope to have this blog and website read by people looking for information and help with the long-term effects of bullying. WordPress just sent me some statistics on how the website did in 2010 and I wanted to share them with you and thank you for continuing to read this site. The statistics also share articles that were most read, so I thought that would be of interest to you also, in case you missed them the first time.
I am continuing to try to bring information you would like on the long-term effects of bullying, so please always feel free to share thoughts or comments on how this site can be improved with me. I promise that 2011 will continue to bring more information to you from this site and also continue to hope to reduce the number of people who have to suffer with bullying and it’s long term effects.
While there never seems to be a lack of stories about bullying to find, I believe we are more aware of the problem and that is the first step to reducing the issue and dealing with it. Again, thank you for reading. Now, here’s the 2010 stats from WordPress.
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:
