Who posts the most?

One of the stats that we can get out of WB quite easily is a per-person post count. I've never needed it before today, but there was something I wanted to check, so I asked for a report. I find myself astonished by the results. If you can bear the suspense, try looking away from the screen now, before you see the list, and ask yourself who you think you'll see up near the top. Done? Now look back, and see whether you were right. I was nowhere near.

Disclaimers: some people contribute to more than one blog – a work one and a personal one, say – and so what you're seeing here is the total of their posts to both/all of those blogs. And some people write web forms which create blog entries, and in the process of testing their forms, they create dozens of entries, thus appearing high in the rankings for posts which are actually machine-generated.

(If anyone objects to their post count being published, by the way, leave a comment and I can easily remove you from this list.)

  1. Only 128 entries? Bit disappointing really. :(

    There's a lot of names I'm recognising, some who I expected to be higher, and still a few who I've never heard of. Somehow I had a feeling that Rob O'Toole would be top though…

  2. I think I should possibly cut back :s
    nice stats, very interesting

  3. If we go for number of quality posts, i'm the clear winner.

  4. Like these?

  5. out of curiosity do you have any record of who's made the most comments?

  6. I'm suprised I made the list at all!

  7. Me too. In fact I'm shocked I've done that many.

    Actually I'm not shocked I've done that many (old blog and all), I'm shocked that I come so close to the top.

    Funny to see Chris Carter on here what with all the hoohah and that. Only 165 not very offensive entries.

    Stats are far too fascinating to be healthy.

  8. Woohoo!!! I'm famous. Or at least flooding the place with random gibbel. Has it really been nearly 200 posts?

  9. Robert O'Toole

    You can discount my total, as i'm the one who has several work blogs. That added to some 'test' entries. I was also one of the first people to start blogging, well before it was officially released.

    Although all my recent personal entries have been made under my PhD student account, so won't be listed.

  11. Steve Rumsby

    You can discount my total…

    No, please don't. That would make me the busiest blogger, and I'm not sure I'm ready for such status:-)

  12. I find myself astonished by the results.
