I’ve been experiencing a persistent urge to data-mine my own blog lately. Without speculating as to why this might be, or whether or not any of all y’alls would be interested in such a thing, here are some notes to that end:
- Someone ought to WordPressify this weighted word list script; should be easy. What I’d really like is something more akin to Amazon’s Statistically Improbable Phrases, but that would be less easy.
- I’d also like to modify the Word Statistics plugin to produce a graph of reading level vs. time. I expect it to show that my writing has improved, for some convenient definition of “improved” which I will decide on after seeing the results.
- I’d also like to see posts-per-comment vs. time.
Update: I turned the weighted word list script into the Weighted Words plugin.
