How perennial is this blog? I took the top 20 directly accessed posts in each year, for 2017, 2018 and 2019 up to Feb 10.

Conclusion:from the 665 posts from this blog (666 with this one)

- in each year only 20% of the top 20 posts are from the same year. So this blog is not read as a news source, it ages well.
- 73% of all posts available ever were accessed directly in 2017, 62% in 2018 and already 20% in the first month and 1/2 of 2019. Because 2019 just started, it follows that at least 60% of all posts since 2011 are read every year.

Also, 2015 and 2016 are not well represented in top 20, probably because of the chemlambda collection. Sad, because there are many other things here than chemlambda, for example posts about OA and OS.

Here is the data. Mind that the data probably represents only post read by people who don’t use blockers, as seen via the stats page of the blog. Helas, I would like to know what is the real situation, while in the same time I advice everybody to use blockers, as I do. As an author, I do need a bit a love though, indulge me.
