Last Day at Instructables
Curious about my impact this summer, I did a bit of statistical analysis on the last three months, and I wanted to share it with you. It's not completely precise, but it gives a good ballpark.
Ironically, though I have done laser cutting, 3D printing on both the UP printer and the Objet, CNC embroidery, and even CNC papercutting, I never bothered to install the office printer. So I had to show my graphs from a laptop screen.
Here are my stats, as of August 17th:
I published 69 Instructables total this summer in about 89 days, (65 official work days). (I have a lifetime total of 88 from some previous Instructables.)
Here's a graph of the Instructables building up over time. (Blue is data; the thin black line is a fitted trend.)
63% of my summer’s Instructables were featured. I had a quick learning curve; after the end of May, 75% were featured.
It was a little more difficult to extract further data, so the remainder of my statistics refer only to Instructables I published while working here this summer which received over 1,000 total pageviews.
Overall, these Instructables generated 294,224 pageviews (almost three hundred thousand!), 89% of which were from unique viewers.
People spent a total of 14 hours, 11 minutes, and 28 seconds viewing these Instructables.
To the left, you can see my summer pageviews accumulate, and to the right, the day-by-day graph of my pageviews.
