House of 1,000 Posts

Congratulate us! Effective right now, we’ve just hit our milestone 1,000th post here at The Bonus View, in just under one year’s time. We’re pretty proud of what we’ve put together here. If you happen to be interested, we’ll share some posting stats after the break.

When we pitched the idea for this blog to our corporate masters, we were originally set an expectation of only 2-3 posts per week. We’ve managed quite a bit better than that. The blog launched on April 26th, 2010. Since that date, we’ve kept a steady pace of an average four posts per day. The least number of posts we’ve ever run on a business weekday (excluding weekends and holidays) was three. We’ve squeezed in as many as six on a number of occasions. I have personally contributed at least one post every active day except two (October 28th and November 4th, 2010).

Here are some other interesting stats by author. Well, I find this sort of thing interesting, anyway. Make of these numbers what you will.

    Congrats guys. I have to admit, The Bonus View is actually my favorite part of the site and the place I check every day, or several times a day. Unless I’m specifically checking out a review or something, I generally glance at the main page and then bounce right to here to see what’s going on.
