2008 Blogging Statistics

Matt Mullenweg and Alex King have posted some blogging statistics again in their respective end of year posts. Being an curious kind of chap, I wondered what my own blogging habits have been over the years.

POSTS AVG. POST LENGTH TOTAL POST LENGTH COMMENTS AVG. COMMENTS
2004 1 478 487 0 0.0
2005 82 1949 159835 511 12.7
2006 103 1837 189259 865 4.5
2007 127 1977 251150 229 1.0
2008 68 1597 108623 78 0.6

The longer posts are typically caused by rants to do with things like Australian Idol, which coincidentally also tend to generate a lot of comments. The higher frequency of posting in the past has also been made up of technical style posts, which after realising I had a bit of a split personality – I have moved over to #if debug.

For those that are interested in doing the same, I have modified the SQL that Alex used initially to generate his results so that it’ll collate the blogging statistics for all years at once. Computers are good at computing and laziness is a virtue of a programmer.
