imageI have been doing it for quite a while, sometimes it seems like forever. Somehow, I am not quite sure how, I got to this post, the third thousand one.

By sheer coincidence, this is also my birthday by the Hebrew calendar.

I am not quite sure what I am supposed to do about it, since the big surprise is planned for a few months from now, so I decided to go with the traditional route and do a retrospective.

I used these two posts to gather the information:

  • Active since: April 2004
  • Number of Posts: 3000
  • Number of Comments: 8,462
  • Avg. Comments Per Post:  5
  • Avg. Posts per Month: 73
  • Avg. Posts per Week Last Year: 19
  • Avg. Comments per Month: 208

The most popular posts, based on web views, aggregator views and comments. The results are quite surprising to me, I am not sure that I can readily explain it.
