Lichfield motorbike club event set to mark military deaths in Afghanistan was the 6,000 article published on Lichfield Live since the very first way back in January 2009 (then The Lichfield Blog, of course).
Having a slight fascination with statistics I couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a look at those 6,000 and analyse them. Here’s what I found.
- Total posts: 6,000
- Total words: 1,718,309
- Total contributors: 74
- Total comments: 3,693
- Average posts/month: 176.5
Quite impressive even if I do say so myself! What I find most revealing is when you split the posts down by contributor;
Unsurprisingly Ross is right up there with the majority of posts – a massive 4,606! Everyone go give him a pat on the back for that continuously sterling effort.
Of course you also see there the familiar names of contributors who have continued to provide new content week in, week out and some of whom have been with us since the very beginning. Great to see such unrelenting support!
A similar story is true of the breakdown of words by contributor;
Talking of contributors, it’s interesting to see how long some of them have been with us. This of course is no measure of quality but it’s interesting nonetheless. Sorry it’s a little hard to see… hovering on the bars reveals the names;
It’s great that some of the longest serving contributors are still with us!
Of course one of the cornerstones of our ‘philosophy’ is that we provide the news and let you lot do the opinion. No surprises in the most commented articles, then;
By subject, that’s something like;
So who are the most vocal Lichfeldians then? Again, probably no surprises for those of your familiar with our comments section…
Funny to see our old friends Class Crisis there and I’m sure Bob will surpass me very soon to take the number 2 spot!
Not sure about you but that’s certainly satisfied by statistical itchings for a while. Maybe I’ll look again when we reach our third birthday (it’s very soon y’know, we’re expecting cake!)…
So if you’re one of the contributors above, or one of the many commenters – thank you! Here’s to the next 6,000.
