Let’s wrap this week up with a few stats from the last 500 issues. I’ll resume the usual “And finally…” service next week!
First, the obvious one. How many links? 6,989 “main” links, with an additional 5,249 in my comment or the summary text under each link. Surprisingly, in the first 100 issues, I only included 23 links in comments/summaries. In contrast, in the last 100 issues, there have been 2,560. 😱
How many words have I written? I’ll admit I was slightly disappointed when I counted the total across all issues, and it was a relatively meagre 428,582. I felt a little better when I saw the reading time as a solid 35 hours and 42 minutes. Who wants to read through from the start? You’ll finish before the end of Saturday! Enjoy! 😂
What about top domains? The top of the list is predictable, with
github.com taking the top spot with 703 links, followed by
twitter.com with 326,
apple.com with 265 and
medium.com with 262, and
github.io finishing the top 5 with 88. The list has a very long tail, though, with 65% of links being to domains I’ve never linked to before.
How about links in my comments and summaries? Again, predictable. Starting with 1,579 links to
twitter.com (that’s 30% of all links in summaries!), then
github.com with 466,
apple.com with 397,
medium.com with 72,
youtube.com with 62, and
swift.org coming in at 49.
But, I know what statistic you’ve all been anticipating most. Which emoji has been most popular over the 500 issues, and to answer that, I’ll sign off with…
