’s two year anniversary: miscellaneous observations

So, its the two year anniversary of orgtheory today. (Here’s the first post from exactly two years ago.) Below, some miscellaneous observations:

Orgtheory posts:

Friends and family of orgtheory:

  • We’ve had some great guest bloggers.
  • We had a snarky baby sibling emerge last year, scatterplot.
  • O&M, our evil twin, picks on us too.
  • Then there’s The Soc Shrine, don’t really know what to say about them.
  • I’ve noted that the following blogs and/or news outlets, other than our evil twin and younger sibling, have linked to us in some way in the past: Chronicle of Higher Education, Salon, MarginalRevolution, CrookedTimber,, Socializing Finance and many other blogs etc.

About the orgtheory guys:

And, orgtheory in numbers:

  • We post about 12.5 posts per week.
  • On average about 600-700+ unique visitors come by orgtheory each day, 100-150 are loyal returning readers.
  • In addition, 400+ unique folks subscribe to orgtheory via the google feed.
  • Most of our readers come via .edu sources, so, it appears our stable readership is largely academic: sociology dpts, b-schools, social science dpts, law schools.
  • Akismet, wordpress’s spam filter, has protected us from 168,944 spam comments (I think its actually twice that as I recently emptied the spam archive).

The upshot?

  • Its been an enjoyable couple years. I don’t think anyone takes us too seriously, and thats just as well since we don’t either.
