2008 by the Numbers

Instead of a traditional look back at what was a very busy 2008, I present you 2008 by numbers Blogging blogposts My number of posts per month seem to have taken a dive in April/May  I suspect having twin boys in March might be one factor in the dramatic change in my blogging pattern this year.  Twitter was probably another factor as some information that use to wind up as a short post on a blog, now wind up on my Twitter stream. Twitter Thanks to TweetStats I have some insight in to the pattern of my Twitter usage tweetsbymonth Clearly my Twitter usage increased throughout the year, and I think the real spike from March to April was in large part due to my acquiring  an iPhone, making me a truly mobile Twitter user ( I had previously used Twitter on my Blackberry, but the experience is much better on the iPhone though this is probably an Apples to Oranges comparison comparing an older model Blackberry to an iPhone) tweets by day hour TweetStats is also telling me what days of the week and times of day I like to Tweet Photography For those of you who don’t already know I love taking pictures (mostly of my kids).  Last December I graduated to a DSLR, which would probably be one of the factors in an explosion of the number of pictures taken this year. photos This view from Picasa shows my photos by year since 2003 when I bought my first digital camera (my daughter was born in September of 2003)  after three relatively steady years, followed by a dip in 2007 this year saw a big increase of pictures taken (and I still have a few hours left to add to the total). pics by month My photo distribution is basically level throughout the year with a big spike in April no doubt due to Abe and Jack’s homecoming. In addition to Abe and Jack’s arrival this year other family milestones included  Molly  graduating from pre-school in June, and in September she turned five and started kindergarten.  This past November  my wife and I celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary. Wrapping up So that’s it for 2008, onward to 2009 looking forward to seeing many of you in a few weeks in Orlando. Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year.

    Proof that you are related to your parents. Just as meticulous, but only when there’s an electronic way to do it.
