US SOARS Past China and Italy to Have Most COVID-19 Cases in the World!

Well, I was way too conservative in my predictions for when the US COVID-19 case totals would surpass China’s. That’s according to the excellent (American) Johns Hopkins University interactive website!

I wasn’t sure of the American’s testing capacity, but that didn’t seem to matter much because they are confirming cases at a very high rate compared to many other jurisdictions. That is, the US hasn’t even gotten around to the most of the potential cases yet!

Wow! America is in some serious trouble, but I’m not sure they really have a grasp of it yet, on the whole and on the top among those making the biggest decisions. You’re gonna really need God to bless you to get through this relatively unscathed, America. I’ll even pray for you!

Next target, beat all of Europe, for not just a “win” but a “trouncing”. America loves being #1 at everything, after all, doesn’t it?

May the Force be with you!

This Blog’s 2010 Performance in Review, Courtesy of WordPress.com

The performance summary below was a nice little features the people at WordPress.com did for their blogs. Now if only I could find a way to turn it into some monetary income.

WordPress.com should set some traffic rewards where you can get credits to use to purchase their services, like storage space, or domain mapping.

To think, I donate all this time to work on this personal interest, and people came here as much as they did (2.3+ million page views and about 700,000 downloads), and I still had to pay money to maintain it.

That small possible improvement aside, in my opinion, I would like to genuinely thank WordPress.com for all the hard work they do to provide such a wonderful blogging platform! I did do a review of most of the other well-known platforms before deciding on using WordPress.com and I am glad I did!

The stats helpers at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!
