2013 was the first full year of Bad Hessian’s existence, so we’re taking stock of what we’ve accomplished in the past year.
We’ve had 37 posts written by the regular crew plus 5 great guest authors.
We’ve had 51,520 unique visits, 39,412 unique visitors, and 70,772 pageviews. Most people are coming from search engines and we’re getting most social media traffic through Twitter.
The five most popular posts of 2013 (written in 2013) were:

It was a great year for us. What does 2014 bring? I can think of a few things that’ll probably come up.
- More stats pedagogy
- More IPython
- More social science hackathons and data events
- More discussions of protest event data
- More drag queens (duh)
And I hope more content in general! Is there anything you’d like to see here in 2014? Let us know!
