The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

A model of consistency

From last September:

The old database (may it rest in peace) had sixteen thousand comments, yes, but they were distributed over seven thousand entries. In April 2004 I noted that I was getting just under two comments per post; the record for any single post is twenty-nine, which occurred here. I attribute the success of this particular post to the comparatively-unusual (for me, anyway) subject matter: the company of babes.

The average in the new database, which opened up on the sixth of this month, remains about two and a half comments per post.

Today, we're still on that new database, and the 2000th entry thereupon is imminent. There have been, as of this writing, 5,001 comments. The average remains about two and a half comments per post.
