List 400: A Statistical Retrospective

It feels weird to do any type of "look at me" list, and that's not the intent here. I'm still floored anyone reads my lists, let alone ❤️ or 🔁. But I am a stat nerd, and there are stats available to analyze on li.st. I started the spreadsheet for list 300 but decided against it then and now I'm all "F it just do it" so here ya go....

    Profile snapshot
    At time of posting this list, which is when the stats were frozen in time. The first (hopefully) ❤️ changes all the statistics.....

    Stats about my first 399 lists:
    Special shout-out to @supercommonname who was the first I saw to do this type of list/analysis.

    Number of lists: 399
    This is my 400th so it's not included.
  4. •
    Number of weeks on li.st: 44
    Using first published list date of 10/27/15, I was however on for a week or two previously reading/lurking...
  5. •
    Average lists posted per week: 9
    Whoa 😳. Is that too much? Yes. That's too much. I need to reduce the frequency, Kenneth.

    Total Number of ❤️ received: 11,151
  7. •
    Total Number of 🔁 received: 2,195

    This number is skewed because it includes my comments, but was easy enough to tally at the same time as likes and relists.

    Average number of 🔁 per list: 5.50

    Number of lists to make the Trending list first page (aka 🎉CONFETTI!!!🎉): ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    No way to track this unless I was keeping track diligently. And I'm not. But I like it. #realtalk

    Number of lists Featured: 3
    So incredibly arbitrary IMHO. It is a special thrill that I sincerely hope everyone experiences at least once.
  19. •
    Number of List Request "Direct Messages" posted as lists by other users: 2
    😬
  20. •
    Number of lists with Rankings: 43 (10.78%)
    About what I thought.
  21. •
    Number of lists about parenting/kids: 33 (8.27%)
    More than I thought.
  22. •
    Number of lists containing 🌅: 30 (7.52%)
    Less than I thought.
  23. •
    Number of lists about sports: 27 (6.77%)
    Surprisingly high considering what a niche topic it is here on li.st.
  24. •
    Number of lists about Seinfeld: 15 (3.76%)
    Less than I thought. This included other Jerry Seinfeld topics beyond the actual show.

    So yeah, what did I learn from doing this meaningless exercise?
  27. •
    I list too much. More than 1 list a day is overkill. 😳
    And that doesn't account for the fact that I don't post a list on most weekends. I'm a DayLi.ster™, which means I have most of my activity fall between 7 am - 3 pm Eastern US time. Ugh.

    After 400 lists, I guess I have a li.st "brand." Some amalgam of sunrise/Seinfeld/positivity/pop-culture/rankings/comment guy?
    I could probably stand to post a few more parenting/kid lists - I didn't want to become "the triplet guy" when I started, and I'm still a little reluctant to post too much personal stuff.....

    Probably should back-channel for direct messaging rather than LR.
    Yes it takes longer but you can delete it and it won't get posted....

    I like it here, and I like you.
