Next the blogs that we published in earlier years, ranked by their views in the year 2022. These evergreen blogs get views each day, mostly via Google search and have become prime reference articles on the topic.

The top five with > 35,000 views and a cumulative 86,000 views for these top 25 blogs.

I have also added the 2021 Rank to show which moved up and which down in 2022.

The top 5 with a cumulative 37,000 views and an average time on the page of between 4 to 7 minutes, making the cumulative time a staggering 3,400 hours for these.

These categories reflect not only our own interest but more importantly what our readers find to be of value based on the view statistics data that we collect.

  • There are now 1,098 blog articles on our website,
  • 50 of these had > 1,000 views in 2022.

That’s enough statistics for today.

A Little Competition

As the blog articles stack up, us data geeks, (meaning Chris and I), have a little competition going.

My blog article count is currently 415 and Chris’s is 412, the gap having narrowed in 2022.

Who will end 2023 on top?

Place your bets.

We hope to continue to do the same in 2023.
