digitalmars.D.announce - The D Blog in 2017

My annual retrospective on the D Blog is up. Managing the blog 
really is a lot of fun for me. Every time I click the publish 
button I stay glued to reddit and the stats page to see how it's 
being received, with a glance now and again at the forum 
announcement to see what sort of mistakes I missed, often well 
past my bedtime (I love living in Korea, but the time zone can be 
rather inconvenient!).

Here, I list the new blog features I enjoyed working on in 2017 
and, my favorite part, some stats. I wrap up with a bit about 
what to expect in 2018.

Do you track what people enter in the search box? That might catch people searching for something to see if there's a post about some topic as well as those searching for a specific post; if there are searches for topic X but hasn't been a post for it, that would be a sign that people are interested in X.

Nice idea, and not one I considered. I'll see if there's a Wordpress plugin for it, because it doesn't seem to provide that out of the box.

Small out of order sentence, look for "if you have something D to write about".

That's actually intentional. Similar expressions: "all things D" "anything D" "nothing D"
