2013 BGN Mid-Year user stats

Every half year or so, I review and publish the user stats over on Blogging The Boys as a way to to recognize significant contributors to the site. And like last year, I rounded up the BGN user stats for the first six months as well. Note that while I'm familiar with some of your older members, I've lost track of all the new names on BGN, so I'm just going to do a data-dump here and let you guys hand out the virtual accolades, warm handshakes and pats on the back.

The point of this post is to highlight the effort of the BGN community, not to compare it with the other blogs. But if you must, you can find the 2013 BTB stats here and I'll probably have the BBV stats done in the next couple of days. Here's what the numbers say about BGN after 6 months, from Jan 1 to June 20:

  • Over the first six months of 2013, the BGN front page team brought you 980 front page posts, which is significantly up from the 765 in the first six months of 2012. These numbers do not include Fanshots posted to the front page (they do not show up in the archives for technical reasons).
  • 192 BGN members combined for 417 FanPosts from January through June 2013, a number which is almost identical to the 413 FanPosts penned by 208 BGN members over the same period last year.
  • The Fanshot section on BGN used to be one of the most active in all of SBNation. In the first six months of 2012, 211 BGN members posted a total of 1,112 Fanshots. This year, that number is down to 438 Fanshots by 216 members. You can thank the re-design of SB Nation for that.
Front Page

Here's how your front page writers kept you entertained in the first six months of 2013.

Minor note on these numbers: While the number of Fanshots has dropped by 60% versus last year (from 1,112 to 438) the number of comments has dropped off much more dramatically. The number of comments in the Fanshot section is down by 92% percent versus last year (from 12,233 in the first half of 2012 to 980 in the first half of 2013).
