Two years ago, on Yoni's Funny Church post, our dad commented that he thought it was the first time there "were two consecutive postings by Yoni/Jonathan without either other brother posting in between." At that time, I quickly cobbled together a poorly-written Mathematica program to check that, and discovered that it was the third time it happened. In honor of the 5 year blogoversary, however I've got a bit over the top.
Firstly, there were 627 posts over the course of the five years, giving an average of 125.4 per year, or 2.4 per week. This is how they break down by day of the week:
You'll notice, though, that the Thursday bar is significantly higher than the others. This is why:
But, back to that original question: What about consecutive posts? Well, here's 4 charts, one per blogger (click to embiggen). Each one shows the number of posts by other people between two consecutive posts by each blogger.
A lot of our posts have pictures in them:
Bauhaus, International Style in Tel Aviv
Tied for second place, with 16 pictures, is my Give me a lever and a place to stand and Yoni's Tons of Egypt Pictures, Cairo Alexandria
In a close third, with 15 pictures, is Aryeh's post: Full of Hot Air
It's interesting that we have more posts with one picture than with no pictures.
We also get comments:
Where's the one?!?
Tied for second place, with 14 comments are two of my posts: The sad state of science education and Don't ask
Finally, in third place, with 13 comments is Aryeh's Puzzling Puzzles
Yoni and Stacy tie for fourth place with 12 comments each: Fun with Matlab, why (Yoni) and The first Lansey Brothers' Blog contest! (Stacy)
Finally, here's a video of the "time of day we post" histogram, developing over five years of blogging.
Let's do this again in 5 years...
Also, if there are any other statistics you want me to check, let me know in the comments. If I can run 'em, I'll post 'em.
