5,000 posts (!), a million+ words (!!), and 55 months (!!!) on this blog

Huzzah!!!! This is my 5,000th post, just as I leave for a week’s vacation in London.

During the 55 months since this blog began late in February 2005, an average of three posts a day have appeared. The total number of words amounts to a bit less than 1.1 million (See my post of Nov. 10, 2009 #3: concordance analysis of nearly 5,000 posts; and Sept. 1, 2008: three-quarters of a million words and some other metrics.). All those words in those 5,000 posts (as of Nov. 13, 2009) group into thirteen primary categories:

Outside Counsel 22%; Talent 13%; Tools 12%; Productivity 9%; Controlling Costs 9%; Observations 8%; Benchmarks 5%; Structure 5%; Showing Value 4%; Client Satisfaction; 3%; Thinking 3%; Technology 3%; and Knowledge Mgt. 2%. The remainder I categorized as Guest, Writing, or This Blog (See my post of June 23, 2009: thoughts on first 4,500 posts’ categories; Sept. 22, 2005: thoughts on my categories; March 4, 2007: visits to blog by category; Jan. 13, 2008: categories by interest of readers; and Sept. 1, 2008: insights into categories on this blog.).

As for metaposts, which collect at least six posts on a topic, I have published under Observations a total of 413, which collectively refer back to 5,710 posts and 181 metaposts (See my post of Jan. 18, 2008 #2: more than 3,500 references; and Aug. 12, 2008: metrics on metaposts.). The leading topics of this collection of collections are Outside Counsel 22%;Talent 18%; Productivity 11%; Cost 9%; Structure 6%; Metrics 6%; Management 5%; Software 4%; Knowledge Management 3%; Client 3%; Decisions 3%; Technology 2%; Tools 2%; Work 3%; Showing Value 1%; and This Blog 1%. Eighteen of those metaposts rise to the status of hyperpost since they include five or more metaposts.
