2012 By The Numbers At Big Blue View

Six months ago, I posted the BBV user stats for the first 6 months of 2012. Today I'm back with the full-year stats. I review these stats regularly 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.

As time permits, I do the same thing for some other sites. While I'm familiar with some of your members, I don't spend enough time on BBV to provide relevant/witty/snarky commentary on all the individual members and their contributions (or lack thereof) to the blog. So I'll leave it to you guys to make of these numbers what you will and provide the appropriate commentary.

This post is not about comparing our different sites, so I won't be comparing BBV vs BTB numbers in this post. But if you want to take a peek at the BTB numbers, you can do so by following this link. With that out of the way, here are the BBV stats for 2012.

  • In 2012, the BBV front page team brought you 2,238 different front-page entries. This total includes open threads, storystreams and transcripts in addition to regular posts. In total, that averages out to about 6.1 posts per day, with the bulk (1,740) authored by your fearless leader Ed Valentine.
  • 254 BBV members wrote a combined 587 FanPosts in 2012.
  • 102 BBV members posted a total of 237 Fanshots last year.
