Since I want to write a book on data visualization for beginners, I wanted to know how many words I’d already written here at #D4R. The book and the blog will be different, of course, but things like The Insanely Illustrated Guide To Your First Data-Driven Tile Mill Map, as well as others, are very likely to appear there. So it’s good for me to know what I’ve got in terms of source material.
These charts are created by a WordPress plugin called Word Stats.
The count is good news. If my book is 40-60,000 words long, I probably need 80K in source material. But I’m well on my way.
