Tal Galili’s has been syndicating blog posts about R for quite a while — from memory I’d say about 8 , but I couldn’t find the exact date it started aggregating. Anyway, it contains a wealth of information about activity in the R ecosystem, but without any easy way to access that information other than the blog post feed. Bob Rudis figured it out though — by using the Feedly API and the RSS feeds of R-bloggers, you can extract quite a bit of about the posts of the 7+ bloggers syndicated on the site. Among the insights:

  • Since 2014, there have been more than 1 posts per month (and up to as many as 250 in one month) aggregated on R-bloggers
  • Most posts appear on Mondays and Tuesdays. Sunday is the quietest day for R bloggers.
  • More than 1,000 authors have been published on the site.
  • And (with more than a modicum of personal pride here), the top authors on the site, measured by total engagement, are:


You can find more analysis, including charts and the detailed R code used to produce them and a link to the extracted data file, in Bob Rudis’s blog post at the link below: Exploring R-Bloggers Posts with the Feedly API
