That Was the Week that Was: 2015 Week 31

That was the week that was TW3Sad to say, but this TW3 is being backdated and dropped in nearly a week later. That may explain, if not excuse, its somewhat telegraphic nature compared to the usual.

But hey, they say brevity is the soul of wit. So here we’ll give you twice as much brevity, and shouldn’t that add up to about half wit?

Thanks for reading, commenting, and keeping us at the coal face mining what we hope is interesting and worthwhile content for you.

The Boring Statistics

This week was an average week in some ways. We posted what has become our standard, 27 posts, and a higher than usual total of about 20,000 words. Of the two averages we still track, mean was 733 and median 657, and few of the posts were real outliers.

We did have a real explosion in comments this week: thanks, perhaps, to some accessible and discussion-prone topics, we had 469 comments at press time, a record for the year. The comments frequently extend and expand upon the blog posts a good bit; make the time to read some of them some time.

The month of July ended this week with approximately  1.2 million unique visitors YTD and about 6.7 million visits.

Comment of the Week

Because we’re doing this post retroactively, nothing’s fresh in mind, so we’re not going to have one this week… sorry ’bout that.

The Week in Posts

Here’s the recap of our posts for this week:

Going Forward

Since we’re posting this a week late, we’ll draw the line at making predictions for a future that is already long past.
