Those graphs were made for test in the article Generating my own jekyll blog stats. I decided it would be delightful to have them handy so here they are in their own private page!

Having it on a table is nice, but graphs are way more stylish!
Months’ articles distribution
Let’s see which month of the year I’m the most productive over the years:
It does have a curve from the more to less active! The busiest months aren’t necessarily the ones I would have expected. Can’t always be writing, apparently. 😛
Hot topics of the years
To check the evolution of the topics happening over the years:
my most recurring topics.
I put in the
other category all tags with less than 2 articles in it and the
misc so that the graph doesn’t get too cluttered.
Blog’s tags overview
To see what are the main topics in this blog, in my case I use tags as category 🤷♀️ with one tag per article. Besides, bringing a use case for a radar type of graph, this one also displays the editorial line of the blog.
Too many tags could mean that they need to be consolidated. As I write randomly about things that I come across, the content is a bit diverse.
Another view of the blog’s activity, this time accounting for the average number of words (the number of word is divided, so it would fit in the chart).
Some topic may need fewer words than others, as long as you keep writing and make article it’s worth it! 📝 Most of the articles are either a memory help for me, or an exercise to better understand the subject. It’s never perfect, I often come back to old articles to fix typos and try to improve them.
Let’s dive with this chart at the number of articles published over the years. It’s a good indicator to see the actual blogging activity on the site.
You can see the growth rate of article with the line compared to the year’s productivity with the bar. For now, it is steadily growing, as long as I have topics that fuels my motivation I will keep it up 😃.
