2010 in review

I launched AustinTechGeeks.com about six months ago, today I am happy to share with you some numbers of how we did in these six months. We don’t have a BIG number of visitors… yet. However, I am very happy with what the blog has accomplished so far!

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress mulled over how we did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of AustinTechGeeks.com overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow!
