R-bloggers.com is now three years young. The site is an (unofficial) online journal of the R statistical programming environment, written by bloggers who agreed to contribute their R articles to the site.
Last year, I posted on the top 24 R posts of 2011. In this post I wish to celebrate R-bloggers’ third birthmounth by sharing with you:
- Links to the top 100 most read R posts of 2012
- Statistics on “how well” R-bloggers did this year
- My wishlist for the R community for 2013 (blogging about R, guest posts, and sponsors)
1. Top 100 R posts of 2012
R-bloggers’ success is thanks to the content submitted by the over 400 R bloggers who have joined r-bloggers. The R community currently has around 245 active R bloggers (links to the blogs are clearly visible in the right navigation bar on the R-bloggers homepage). In the past year, these bloggers wrote around 3200 posts about R!
Here is a list of the top visited posts on the site in 2012 (you can see the number of page views in parentheses):
