Well, without much delay (just 18 days compared with last year’s 56 days 😉 ), here is my year end stats and review post for the year 2009.
Highlights of 2009
2009 has been a year of rollercoaster for me and a year full of changes both at the personal side as well as professional side.
I started the year with a trip to the operation theatre and then to Bangalore for attending Yahoo hack day, started having a crush on Google Wave, then changed job and moved to Bangalore and then changed my host 😉 , participated in WordPress Plugin competition and then released a couple of Plugins (for which I got an excellent review from Ozh), and then had a break-up with TV (which turned out to be a very good thing) and then visited US on a business trip and then finally ended the year, by releasing RoloPress. 😉
Okay enough of self-bragging and time for some stats.
Number of Posts
Thanks to my break-up with TV, I got more time to spend with my blog, which can be seen from the increase in the total number of posts. The number of posts slowed down a bit towards the end of the year due to my travel and RoloPress, but on the whole, I am happy with the results
Number of comments
More than the number of posts, the one which gave me more satisfaction, is the number of comments. Last year, I said that I will try to engage more user activity in my blog and one look at the graph should say that I succeeded. 😉
Thanks to all those who commented, you really bought a smile on my face.
Average number of characters in posts
There is a slight increase when compared with the previous years and since things have worked out well so far, I am planning to continue the same this year too.
Total number of characters in all posts
I have almost written (okay typed 😉 ) almost double the amount of characters in 2009 when compared with 2008. This is really good and I hope to continue the same next year too.
What’s in for this year?
So for this year, I am planning to concentrate more on my WordPress Plugins and RoloPress and also planning to learn a couple of languages like Haskel, Scala and R. Let’s see how things turn out
