2 Years

Today marks two years since the beginning of Blogorrhea! Even though it was not quite one year ago when I first posted the Blogorrhea Hall of Fame, I figured today would be a good day for an update. I souped up my WordPress-XML-parsing script with year 1/year 2 comparison and stats for the most popular (commented-on) posts (and as always, I’m willing to help anybody else create a Hall-of-Fame for their WordPress blogs; danielbalc can attest that it’s not that hard)

So without further ado, here are the new cumulative stats:

  1. Two things stand out: Year 2 was slower than Year 1, and (unbelievably) Echo was dethroned in the category of Avg. words per comment!

    However, I think we would all agree that this shocking upset takes nothing away from Echo’s accomplishments in this field, and we would not encourage him to attempt to reclaim the title.

  2. I still rank? Resting on my laurels. It would be illustrative to see stats differences between the two years.

    As for Echo … always reformed, always reforming! :-)

  3. I too would like to see a year by year side by side comparison. Have my posts gotten shorter or longer?

  4. I’m surprised I still rank up there. I must have done some good amount of writing in year one.

    Kazoo

    (Also, you might notice I started using “Kazooless” instead of my full name, so the stats are a little off for me. Anyway you can change that?)

  5. All right, all right. Some time this weekend probably, I will find an hour or so to upgrade my script, and we’ll have Year 1 vs. Year 2 stats side-by-side.

    And Jeff, my script has the ability to resolve aliases, if I put the mapping in there; I thought I did yours, but I guess I didn’t. In the final tally, do you want your newer handle?

  6. Yes please. Newer.

    k

  7. For those keeping score at home, echo == gospelordeath, I believe.

  8. Oh yeah, I’ll map that too. Will it push him over the edge?!?! The suspense!!

  9. Happy Anniversay Blogorrhea!

    Cool stats…. Echo’s average words are almost comparable to your average words on posts. Echo has more total words than you on posts and comments combined. Hence Echo has “spilled (his)…brain” more than you have on blogorrhea.

  10. Well there you go; my Perl-fu has worked its magic. Begin the post-season analysis (and remember, any comments here will count for Year 3!)

  11. I think I’m posting less and saying less per post.

  12. I don’t know about that — I think you’re saying the same or more with fewer words!

  13. Ha! Perhaps.

  14. Hey! I show up on the Year 2 leaderboard after only posting since November 26!

    Of course, my spot is only based on words per comment, so the duration of my participation wasn’t an issue, but I’ll take what I can get. :-P

  15. Congratulations on your anniversary. You always have entertaining and thought-provoking posts, even when sometimes missing the mark in your conclusions.

    What about another category: most use of slogans and bumper sticker insights?

    Forced love sucks
    Stand up. Lift your voice. Speak out.
    Magnify the Lord with me. Let us exalt His Name together.
    No Calvinistic kool-aid…Not for me. Not for my family.

  16. I’ll award that category to you hands-down — no Perl measurement needed! Now for the “thoughtful exegesis” category, however…
