The CLUAS Archive: 1998 - 2011


CLUAS by numbersCLUAS is well into its 9th year of operations, a period that has seen a huge amount of activity in terms of content published to the site. For the first time I spent a few moments to try and put some numbers on this.

It turns out that a total of 1380 articles (reviews, interviews or features) have been published to CLUAS since we started back in 1999. These have been written by a pool of 132 different writers, some of whom wrote just one article, others who authored scores and all were volunteers who submitted their contributions for no monetary gain.

In addition there have - so far - been 351 blog entries published by the CLUAS bloggers and 9494 discussion board topics started by CLUAS visitors.

One thing I am taking away from this is the need for a separate interviews section (currently all the interviews appear on the Features page). Their numbers merit a dedicated page, which would also make it easy for readers (and search engines) to find archived interviews.

For the full breakdown see the table below.

Gig Reviews 508
Album Reviews 588
Interviews 72
Features articles 80
Blog entries 351
Discussion board topics 9494
Writers 132
Newsletter subscribers 4843

 Thanks to all writers and contributors for their efforts, past and ongoing. Roll on's 10th birthday next year!
