2010 in Stats

January 2, 2011 § Leave a comment

WordPress sent me a great review of The Sterile Eye stats for 2010. Here’s a summary:

Featured image

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 85,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 4 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 52 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 225 posts. There were 248 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 24mb. That’s about 5 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was April 17th with 1,105 views. The most popular post that day was Jan van Rymsdyk – Drawer of Wombs.

A Video and a Great Blog

January 9, 2010 § 1 Comment

Two things caught my attention this last week:

  1. The video above, from KORB, directed by Rimantas Lukavicius. Absolutely stunning! Hat tip to Street Anatomy.
  2. The blog Medical Moments in 55 Words, where internist WordDoc writes about her patient encounters using only 55 words. The result has almost haiku-like qualities. Best blog I’ve read in ages!

One-year Anniversary

November 11, 2008 § 6 Comments

The Sterile Eye has been around for exactly one year today!

During this year I’ve gotten to know a lot of other people in a universe I didn’t even know existed – the medical blogosphere. I’ve been contacted by medical photographers and others, seeking advice on different aspects of filming surgery. Patients have written to me about the fascination of watching the same operation as they went through. And I’ve had the honor of having some of my posts referenced by others. I thank you all for taking the time to visit. « Read the rest of this entry »

Half-year review

April 28, 2008 § 7 Comments

The Sterile Eye is 6 months old, just learning to sit on its own and getting its first teeth. It’s also delightful to see that it has more than doubled it’s birth weight.

At this first milestone it is time to take a step back and review the past. Here are the posts that are my personal favorites of each of the six months this blog has existed. « Read the rest of this entry »
