Blog Statistics

Joe's post on the record number of posts in July got me a little curious, so I played with a few numbers and did some basic statistics on our blog. We have been going now for 33 months and here's the number of posts per month over that time:
We over the last 33 months, we have averaged 20.42 +/- 12.13 blog posts per month.


  1. What I find interesting is there was a deflation in the number of posts after the summer of 2007 which is when many of us headed off to graduate school.

    Maybe this last month is a fluke or a sign we are starting to get acclmated to graduate life.

    Or maybe graduate school had nothing to do with it.

  2. Let's see what happens when school starts back up.

  3. I think it's interesting that the past two winters we've had spikes around February and March. It will be interesting to see if that trend continues.

    And I do think that the drop off after July 2007 had a lot to do with Joe and I starting grad school. My first semester was pretty crazy - especially compared to the summer before it where I was here at CU doing research.
