It’s the run up to Christmas and I’m not really doing much with myself. It’s cold, miserable and dark outside, and, as you probably guessed from my recent historical rantings, I don’t have many exciting adventures to enthrall you with (just wait until the New Year). So I thought I’d follow Derren’s lead and do some statistical analysis of John’s Adventures. You may differ but I find it quite surprising and interesting.
- First up, I’ve written 84 articles (including this one) since I started the site on February 8th 2002.
- Those articles contain a total of 54,589 words.
- I’ve put 82 photos on the site.
- It takes me an average of 25 minutes to write an article.
- I think of an average of 4 article topics per day (although I forget them within an 1 hour).
- I check the hit count of my site approximately 15 times a day.
- I get around 170 visitors per day (not including me).
- The most common search to get to my site are “do not stand at my grave and weep”.
- Only 1 article I wrote gives me a lump in my throat when I read it again.
- A total of 322 comments have been made on all my articles.
- Around 1 time per week I’m telling a friend a story of what I’ve been up to and they say “I already know, I read it on your website”.
- I’ve written 5 backend articles that have probably generated more interest than the rest of the site put together.
- The articles I think are good never get any comments and the ones I think are ropey get the most feedback.
- I wonder approximately 2 times per week what kind of person readers who’ve never met me think I am and if it’s bears much resemblance to the real me.
- I think about how great CityDesk (my content management tool) is about 15 times a week.
Still, you know what they say: “Statistics show that statistics don’t mean shit”. And don’t panic, I’ll be doing lots over the Christmas period and New Year, so I promise I’ll have more interesting things to write about!
