2020 Year Review

Another year is up, and what a year it has been. I finally open sourced wbstack, I complained about fake news, looked at Minecraft mods and took a look at how COVID-19 was affecting Wikipedia page views.

I make this post mainly for me to be able to look back at each year in a small snapshot. You can find similar posts for previous years in 2019, 2018 and 2017.

Currently I generate this post in a very manual way, sifting through data from WordPress stats, Twitter Analytics and my Github user page. Maybe I should change that for next year!

On the whole this blog continues to grow year on year, both in terms of content and readers.

2019 Year Review

A year or so ago I decided to start making yearly posts reviewing one of my online list. I’m a bit late this year considering it is April already, but it’s been one rollercoaster after another during the start of 2020.

Blog stats

  • 23,940 page views, up from 12,374 (93% increase)
  • 16,276 visitors, up from 8,578 (89% increase)
  • 11 posts, down from 25
  • 101 comments, up from 28

It’s a shame I wrote less, but I did go travelling for 6 months of the year, so it makes sense.

2017 Year Review

2017 has been a great year with continued work at WMDE on both technical wishes projects and also Wikibase / Wikidata related areas. Along the way I shared a fair amount of this through this blog, although not as much as I would have liked. Hopefully I’ll be slightly more active in 2018. Here are some fun stats:

  • 7,992 page views
  • 5,350 visitors
  • 4 total posts (that’s terrible, but its April 2018 now and I already have 6 under my belt)
  • 1840 words

Top 5 posts by page views in 2017 were:

  1. Guzzle 6 retry middleware
  2. Misled by PHPUnit at() method
  3. Wikidata Map July 2017
  4. Add Exif data back to Facebook images
  5. Github release download count – Chrome Extension

To make myself feel slightly better we can have a look at github and the apparent 1,203 contributions in 2017:
