Top 20 Archive Posts of 2009 - the chart!

Posted on 30 December 2009 in Planet Bods (No comments yet - be the first!)

Last year I did a little Chart table to show the views of archive posts have changed over the years.

Review of the Year

It was fun in a "I like pointless stats" kind of way. So I decided to do it again.

So lets bring on the statsmobile, and if you're really bonkers, you can check out last years chart too!

Well not a huge change on last year really - most of last years top 20 remain, with a couple of new entries from 2008. Noticeably there's still a huge train focus in this lot as I mentioned in the last few days. I'm not sure whether to be worried about this or not!

What's also interesting is the year of posts, and as I'd been looking for an excuse to play with Google's chart API, so here's a bar chart!

As you can see, I obviously wrote nothing of any real interest in 2006. I think I should be worried about that...

Once you've done one bar chart, you've got to do another, so I decided to compare the year breakdown for 2009 with that for 2008.

Interesting to see here that things don't change hugely as the years go by - obviously there has to be some changes due to another year being added into the mix, however there's still a lot of consistency - especially with the older posts.

Of course the big question will be what will happen in 2010. Well we'll just have to find out, won't we?
