So, finally it’s a year of blogging. Happy Birthday to all of you!
And interestingly, this post is the 50th on the blog – almost 1 post per week. Good, but can be better.
And though Change Sucks, but change is good – so you can see a new theme for the blog!
I have managed to consolidate all writings into 5 core themes – Knowledge Work, Leadership, Communication, Productivity and Time Management. The 50 posts are distributed like:
Most of the referral traffic have been through tools like Facebook and StumbleUpon. They have been great assets. They work while I sleep.
I looked at how all the posts did and as expected not all were equally popular. They formed more a Power Law than a normal distribution. Posts related to tools, processes or specific items were more popular than my philosophical ramblings!
This is something for me to look at – is the Power distribution ‘normal’ for a blog content?
Interestingly, views in every country formed a Power distribution as well. Top 10 countries accounted for 90% of views, the top 2 being United States and Pakistan (you can guess where my relatives are!).
Now you should really be convinced of the Power of the Power Law.
I did a Wordle analysis for my most commonly used words. Here is what I got – I have no idea why I use ‘Continue’ so much. Something to look at – power of measurement working here!
What have been my favorite posts (after all, I wrote them!)?
Many, but I guess The New Manager and the P-A-C, Leverage the Mavens and Compilers are easy, People are Difficult have been more fun. All philosophical. You can measure the almost negative correlation between fun and popularity!
And in the spirit of measuring – I managed to link back to 14 of my previous posts on this post alone – that’s a track back to 28% of all my content.
I am getting carried away now.
But that’s okay – it’s birthday. I can date myself! (It’s 15 now).
