I have a set of scripts I wrote in 2016 that aimed to analyze my posts over the years and hopefully offered up some insights. I’ve updated them for 2017 but rather than posting every single visualization I thought it would be more valuable to highlight the ones that seemed the most relevant and interesting.
The year is not quite over but I'm defintiely behind on my posts that I hope to power through by the end of the year.
Similarly, the total word volume is lower and in addition to fewer posts it seems when I do write my posts are shorter.
I wanted to avoid only writing on the weekend and this year has been an improvement. I strive to write during the week to keep it more balanced but it hasn't been as easy to find the time and I end up having to catch up over the weekend.
A somewhat interesting chart many of my posts are about tech companies and this shows the trend of companies I write about over time. Surprisingly not much has changed over the past few years and it seems I've settled on a pattern.
I like the concept of word clouds since with a quick glance you're able to get a sense of the topic. In this case it's definitely leaning more on the tech side as well as high level software development concepts.
