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
