Here is a breakdown of the performance of this blog over the last couple of years since I began writing it.

As you can see it’s been growing at a steady clip over time. A lot of this is likely due to being better represented in googles archives. This is the year on year reader/viewer counts. The overall number is pretty low however better than nothing.

Month wise you can see that the peaks in traffic happen around exam time – April and October get heavy traffic. Unusually December also sees a peak in traffic. There must be something festive about reading actuarial content. (wishful thinking)

The week on week performance is fairly volatile – however one thing is obvious someone really thoroughly went through my content on Christmas week. Here’s to you buddy. 🙂

So who’s been reading? Primarily Australians, Americans, Brits, Indians, and a good splattering of people from around the world. Not many Africans or middle eastern people by the looks of it.

My most popular piece by far was about finding a root parent from a long format dataset using a little known data manipulation software called Alteryx. My subsequent most popular pieces are based on modelling methodologies. My piece on the Actuarial Code of Conduct didn’t get much love with only 13 views.

Overall I’m pretty happy with what I’ve achieved with this blog thus far – and will continue to publish more pieces over time. Thanks for reading.
