Tagami Food Wine and Travel: 2010 in Review

January 2, 2011

Tagami visit: Six lines run 24 hours per day making EVOO in this Tuscan mill

Happy 2011!

Gee, where has Liz Tagami been lately?  After such consistency on social media between March and August 2010 (LinkedIN, Twitter, WordPress) she just sort of disappeared.

It’s true — except for a few Tweets and FB posts, Tagami went silent after August 12th.  No worries, really, it’s just that we found that we were too busy during Autumn 2010 with commercial ventures to put pen to paper or keystrokes to WordPress, that’s all.

We still have many 2010 stories and photos to share ranging from exciting new developments in olive cultivation in Israel, to work (and leisure) at Castello del Trebbio in Italy;  from a chat with Martin Hao at ASC Fine Wines in Shanghai, to the rise of olive oil tasting bars in the US.  We have a lot of great new food and travel adventures lined up for 2011, too. We’d like to start posting a least once per week again in the new year if our schedule allows, and hope you’ll keep following our work.

This morning I received an email from WordPress which I happily reproduce for you nearly verbatim as the stats are sort of fun, and you can see the top five Tagami posts of 2010, too.  Thank you for following! See you again in a few days!

The “Stats Helper-monkeys” at mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 9,100 times in 2010. That’s about 22 full 747s.  [Hey, Tagami’s favorite plane is a 747, at least until the 787 Dreamliner is launched!].

In 2010, there were 27 new posts, not bad for the first year. There were 210 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 432mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week. The busiest day of the year was August 7th with 183 views. The most popular post that day was Jaffa Gate.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were,,,, and  Some visitors came searching, mostly for Jerusalem, Suleiman I, Map Jerusalem, Ksar Ezzit, and Tunis Medina.
