    I like data, and having been posting on and off for seven years, there's quite a bit here. I've been posting more frequently over time:

    I started crossposting to facebook in may 2010 and google plus in august 2011. There have been 1042 facebook and 360 google plus comments in that time. No real pattern jumps out at me from the facebook comments (10 post moving average, x axis is posts where 0 is the first facebook crosspost):

    Over the period I've had both facebook and google plus comments they've been mostly correlated:

    The posts with the most comments have been:

    The top tags are:

    1. tech (78)
    2. contra (52)
    3. music (47)
    4. giving (32)
    5. transport (28)
