Data Technology Today’s 2016 Year in Review

Well, another year has come and gone and I thought it might be interesting to share a bit about this blog’s activity in 2016. It was an active year that saw 17 new posts, down a bit from 2015, but still averaging more than a post a month.

Posts on the blog were viewed 47,264 times by 36,870 visitors, meaning each visitor averaged 1.28 views.

The most popular post in 2016 was actually first posted in 2011: An Introduction to Database Design: From Logical to Physical was viewed 10,575 times in 2016. Obviously database design is an interesting topic — at least for the reader’s of this blog!

The second most popular post in 2016 was On The Importance of Database Backup and Recovery, which was first posted in 2014.  The most popular post actually posted in 2016 was published in December, late in the year to lead the year, but evidently people are interested in A Useful Guide to Data Fundamentals from Fabian Pascal. As well they should be!

And the blog gets read all over the world, as shown in the Top Ten Countries visiting in 2016 below:


Yes, most of my readers are from the United States, but I’m proud of the following I have in India (and across the world).

So to end this brief synopsis of 2016, thank you to all of my regular readers – please keep visiting and suggesting more topics for 2017 and beyond. And if this is your first visit to the blog, welcome. Take some time to view the historical content – there are several informative posts that are popular every year… and keep checking back for new content on data, database, and related topics!


I'm a data management strategist, researcher, and consultant with over three decades of experience in all facets of database systems development and implementation.
