Mastering Public Health: 2010 in Review

WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010 and here’s a summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads “Wow.” Very scientific!

By the numbers

A Boeing 747 400-passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 4,500 times in 2010. That’s about 11 full 747s.

The busiest day of the year was May 18th with 93 views. The most popular post that day was Review: Theo Chocolate.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were katheats.com, eatliverun.com, j3nn.net, carrotsncake.com, and peasandthankyou.com.

I hope to be able to post more in 2011 — especially the dozens and dozens of cooking/baking shots I have stored away from the past year, including fig & date bars (FatFree Vegan Kitchen), falafel, chocolate-covered pecan bourbon balls (Hannah Kaminsky, c/o VegNews/The New York Times) , quinoa zucchini lasagna and faux NutriGrain bars (PeasAndThankYou.com), apple crisp (Mission Impossible: Pies), and more (all vegan).

I also recently purchased: a ["factory reconditioned"] VitaMix, Appetite for Reduction (by Isa Chandra Moskowitz), The Joy of Vegan Baking (by Colleen Patrick-Gordreau — outstanding!), VegNews’ 2 holiday cookbooks, and a VegNews subscription. Inspiration abound! Stay tuned.

I am still reading all your blogs. New favorites in 2010 include Oh She Glows, Healthy Food for Living, Love Veggies and Yoga, Chocolate-Covered Katie, Fooducate, and Peas and Thank You.

New favorite sites for buying health goodies 2010 include iHerb.com (supplements, bars, etc.), NutsOnline.com (dried fruit, nuts, chocolate, grains; OVERNIGHT shipping), Gnosis Chocolate (raw, vegan, organic, soy-free), and Eden (BPA-free beans, whole-grain pastas; nice samplers and gift baskets). Great coupons and deals at OrganicDeals.com, RecycleBank, and MamboSprouts. Check ‘em out.

Stay with me. There will be far more posts in 2011. And find me on Twitter @MasPublicHealth, where I post frequently!

  1. Hey! I Deferred at Columbia this year… I assume that’s the program you’re in. How do you like it?
