Contrary to previous reports, we started blogging after our book was published, with the conceit that we were adding examples to the book. Today marks the second anniversary of the book’s appearance and of the blog. To celebrate, we’re turning over our calendar, and starting a new volume of entries– Example 9.1 will appear on July 5th.

It’s very difficult to get an accurate measure of our viewership. As I write this, Feedburner reports about 650 regular readers, but this omits people who see us on R-bloggers and SAS Community Planet or SAS-X. As consumers of those aggregators, we assume there are many others who see us without subscribing directly.

We also get a fair number of views that derive directly from Google searches, which means we must be doing something right. Google Analytics reports over 100,000 total pageviews, while Feedburner claims 250,000.

So far, our most popular entries, according to feedburner are: Example 7.38: Kaplan-Meier survival estimates Example 7.39: Nelson-Aalen estimate of survivorship Example 8.3: Pyramid plots Example 7.30: Simulate censored survival data Example 8.5: Bubble plots part 3

Blogger’s internal metrics vary somewhat: Example 7.35: Propensity score matching Example 8.7: Hosmer and Lemeshow goodness-of-fit Example 7.38: Kaplan-Meier survival estimates Example 7.30: Simulate censored survival data Example 7.25: Compare draws with distribution

All of your attention is really gratifying, and we hope we’re useful to people– it’s hard work finding new material and collaborating on a new post every week!
