2012 By The Numbers So Far At Big Blue View

Every half year I review the user stats over on Blogging The Boys in an attempt to recognize individuals who've made significant contributions to the site, both in terms of quantity and quality.

Just for fun, and time permitting, I do the same thing for the other NFC East sites. This year I started with BBV, so after the break you'll find the BBV user stats for the first half of 2012. I'm not familiar enough with all the members here to provide thoughtful commentary on all of the numbers, so I'll leave it to the BBV community to hand out the Kudos and Wet Willies.

I'm not going to compare the BBV stats with the BTB stats, because that's not the point of this. If you want to, you can find the 2012 BTB stats here. And now, without further ado, the topline 2012 stats for BBV so far.

  • Over the first six months of 2012, the BBV front page team brought you 917 posts. This averages out to a little over five posts per day, with the bulk (744) authored by your fearless leader Ed Valentine.
  • 191 BBV members wrote a combined 382 FanPosts from January through June 2012.
  • 79 BBV members posted a total of 144 Fanshots in the first half of 2012.

Word of advice: rec' more stuff.

If you like what you read, give it a rec'. A high number of rec's will leave a writer in a gleeful state for days, and it invariably will lead to more posts by that author as you turn him or her into a rec' junky. Don't be stingy with those rec's. They are the most gratifying thing for most authors because they show a special appreciation for the work the author has put into his FanPost.
