Since it's a Friday before a holiday weekend, I thought I'd skip any in-depth political analysis and would give Projectors a peek behind the scenes at Bilerico. Every time I meet a reader in person, they always want to know how we do things so let's take a look at ten things you might not know about Bilerico Project.
- While we publish daily, on weekdays we post new content from 7am to usually around 8pm. We try to publish at least once an hour, although smaller posts only get a half hour at the top of the page. We do this to try and ensure that all contributors get an equal amount of time as the most prominent post at the top of the page.
- Since traffic is slower on weekends, we publish on a two hour (Saturday) or hour and a half (Sunday) schedule.
- We use a calendar to keep up with all of the posts and when they're scheduled to publish. This also allows us to easily schedule non-time sensitive posts for later in the week. We average between 90-100 posts per week.
- We always start the day with our middle column content - the You Gotta See This video, the Homotextuals Quote of the Day, and Kate Clinton or Michael Buckley's vlogs.
- On July 2, 2007 we launched Bilerico Project's look and format into beta week. We had 728 visitors. Yesterday we had 41,222. Almost 7 million visitors have stopped by in the time in between.
The other five are after the jump.
