Someone had asked me how many submissions we receive per day.
Yesterday, 142 came in. That’s a pretty typical day.
If we are doing any kind of email promotion, it’ll normally scale to 325-400 submissions per day and it’s been a while since it’s been lower than 100 per day.
23 have come in so far today in the first 7 hours. The bulk of articles are normally submitted between noon and 8pm CST.
My gut feel is that the number of articles per day that are submitted are directly related to how fast our system responds when an author is logged into our system… meaning, if they have a fast experience, they are more likely to submit more and if our system drags…then they will give up more easily.
