2006 EzineArticles Blog Stats In Review

As the year 2006 comes to a close, this is a good time to share some behind-the-scenes stats from this blog:

  • 797 entries in this blog
  • 3,547 comments left by 932 unique humans
  • 746 users casted 2,990 votes
  • 153,000 page views this year

While I only had to step in a handful of times to moderate or close a thread from receiving more comments due to flame wars; One of the greatest compliments that any blogger can hope for is a value-added comment by his or her peers that furthers the discussion along.

Here were the top 20 commentors LTD (Life To Date) of this blog:

  1. Lance Winslow (452)
  2. Christopher M. Knight (303)
  3. Ed Howes (296)
  4. Edward Weiss (181)
  5. Dina (109)

Yes, there are a few repeats in the above list because there isn’t an official membership system with this blog, but if you start commenting with the same computer and you’ve got COOKIES turned on, our blog software will remember you.

Here’s a toast to everyone who helped make the EzineArticles blog a successful industry discussion community in 2006!



Wow! I made the list.

I think that is pretty amazing that I can take part in a conversation that many times is well over my head, as far understanding the ins and outs of ezines and their applications.

Here I am, out here on an island in the middle of the Pacific. I can ask questions, add my own sense of what it all means to me, and learn from others as how to apply my new info.

Thank you everyone at EzineArticles for insights shared. What an amazing thing knowledge is. Thank you everyone for sharing yours with me.

Pretty amazing opportunity.

I agree with Kathy…it’s nice to make a list of active participants who are obviously interested in how article marketing works and are looking for improvement and growth. Especially when you consider the total number of authors listed on the site who have the same opportunity to be involved…no matter if they live on a distant island or in Denver.

As a friend of mine always says: “You don’t have to be good to start, you just have to start to be good.” Start participating and good things happen.

Happy New Year to everyone at EzineArticles and the authors that post there. 2007 is going to be an amazing year!

Some minds think alike. I decided to save my article report earlier today. Had to smile finding myself high on this list. This forum/blog has been a pet project of mine for much of this year and I am delighted by its growth, in no uncertain terms. The whole point seems to me no one has to be an expert at anything to add value to her own and other lives. With the internet we see all kinds of beneficial and very positive communities developing around seemingly limitless good ideas. Evolution here, revolutions there and the opportunity to both observe and participate – very intoxicating. And the most fun I have ever had learning more than intended or expected. We are drowning in a sea of human resources in its infancy. It all boggles my mind. Can anyone tell?

One thing I really appreciate about you, Chris, and EzineArticles is that you do take time to recognize others – it shows a generosity of spirit that I find really appealing.
Happy 2007

I read a book titled “Future Shock” back when I was just 10 or 12 years old. One chapter in particular really caught my attention.

It was about something called the “information age.” It talked of computers and everyone being able to access info rapidly.

Well, I think we’re all a part of that age now. I for one I’m glad to be here. Happy New Year everyone!!

Those blog stats are exciting! Thanks for putting them together, Mr. Stats!! ;-)

I also like that you shared the lists of top participants… gives them a warm feeling inside and helps me to recognise a few whose comments I’ve already read.

I’ve only just started participating in this blog but already fee comfortable and inspired reading all the different viewpoints and enjoying the warm atmosphere.

Thank you everyone. Create 2007 as a year so joyous, thrilling and meaningful that you’ll have no problem remembering it years from now.

My love to you all.

Happy New Year to All!

Ed – I both remember that book and remember that quote. And here we are living out that age, and quite possibly are in the middle of living waaaay past anything the author ever thought about.

Chris – You are the “master of metrics” – the “king of counting” – ok, not the same letter, but it is the same sound – and have been an inspiration to me in the last year about keeping track of such things. I believe that is one of the many reasons for the amazing success of EzineArticles.com.

As always, I’m honored just to be a part of the community.

Out of the ever-creeping fog of blogs into the widening wasteland of the worldwide web, once in a while there comes an intelligent use of minds and time. I think we all feel your energy Chris, and the comeraderie that exists within myriad differences of opinions and ideas. It’s stimulating and it’s fun.

Happy New Year to All

In addition to the free article education and exposure, it’s been great to get to know all the “EA bloggies” via this conversation/discussion medium.

On behalf of Dina, Dina Giolitto and myself, thanks for the opportunity!
