2010 in review

Spicy Sauteed Brussels Sprouts from the very first T-Bones and Tofu post

Wow!  It’s been almost a year since I launched T-Bones and Tofu with the good intention of sharing tips, tricks and recipes for how to have a happy home where vegetarians and carnivores can live together in peace.  Well, this “marriage of tastes” got off to a great start, but, frankly, the daily responsibilities of my day job, my consulting work and living a life (oh yeah, and eating) have, for the last several months, really gotten in the way of making T-Bones and Tofu the valuable resource I hoped it would be.  Not to worry faithful readers.  With the new year comes a new resolution to up the ante and deliver helpful posts to you more regularly.  Until then, the I thought you might find this report from the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys interesting:

Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 3,400 times in 2010. That’s about 8 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 21 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 78 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 19mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was January 25th with 111 views. The most popular post that day was Spicy Sauteed Brussel Sprouts (for Vegetarians or Carnivores).

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, vegweb.com, mail.yahoo.com, tbonesandtofu.com, and mail.live.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for mushroom shepherds pie, tbones and tofu, corn fritters with smoked salmon, wild mushroom shepherds pie, and restaurant week houston 2010 vegetarian.

    My absolute favorites were the location inspired dishes. Like the Greek fish dish. It was fun to read about the food and your inspiration from the country. Hey, didn’t you have shrimp and grits at your wedding reception? Maybe some southern dishes or Tes-Mex would be nice in the new year.
    Love the blog.

      Thanks for the feedback Bridget! We did have the delicious Shrimp & Grits from Backstreet Cafe at the wedding. Yum. Thinking about that makes me hungry.
