I have been looking forward to doing this post again, as I just love statistics. Even though I can check those stats in my Excel file every day of the year, I don’t, because I love to see what the numbers show right at the end of the year. Since tomorrow is the first day of the new year, the prompt that has gone live last Saturday, Prompt #396, is declared the first prompt for 2020.
So without further ado, let’s look at the numbers from this year in comparison to those of the past years.
First and best
The best week of 2019 was for prompt 350 when we had 38 posts linked. Just like last year and years before, I am still chasing to have 50 links for one week, and secretly I hope that will happen for prompt #400, which is in a couple of weeks.
This table shows the accumulative numbers from the beginning of the meme, although this year 2012 is not shown in the table anymore. I think by the end of 2020 we will hit a total of ten thousand posts that have been linked for Wicked Wednesday!
|Since beginning of the meme:||2013||2014||2015||2016||2017||2018||2019|
|Total number of prompts||83||135||187||239||291||343||395|
|Number of players||135||180||226||275||309||354||404|
|Total number of posts linked||1877||2942||3893||4882||5840||7035||8402|
|Highest number of links for one week||47||47||47||47||47||47||47|
|Lowest number of links for one week||13||12||12||12||12||12||12|
|Average number of posts linked per week||22||21||21||20||20||21||21|
Numbers per year
This table shows the numbers per year. Once again 2012 is not shown here, but as you can see, the meme is still growing. Just look at the average number of posts linked per week for 2019. Can we get that to over 30 for 2020?
|Total number of prompts||52||52||52||52||52||52||52|
|Number of players||117||107||98||110||96||114||138|
|Total number of posts linked||1313||1065||951||989||958||1195||1477|
|Highest number of links for one week||47||30||28||30||25||34||38|
|Lowest number of links for one week||14||12||12||12||12||14||20|
|Average number of posts linked per week||25||20||18||19||18||23||28|
Top 10 (still active) players since the beginning of the meme
The table below show all blogs that have been in the top 10 since 2012, sorted on the top 10 for 2019 (those are in italics). Blogs that were in the top 10 in earlier years but have not linked this year or are not active anymore, have been removed. All the others that have been in the top 10 before, remain in the table.
This year I have dropped the numbers for 2012, but those can be found in previous roundup posts.

Top 10 players (still active) since the beginning of the meme
Thank you to all who return to link your posts every week. Molly has been linking every week for 395 weeks, and I know she will continue to link every week for as long as she blogs. Some haven’t linked much this year, but because they have in previous years, they are still in the top 10 over here.

Top blogs for top 3 posts since prompt 129
Up to prompt 128 I haven’t done a top 3, but as from prompt 129 I felt I wanted to highlight the three posts that really touched me. For several months I was the only one doing the top 3, until during a very difficult time in my life, Exposing40 suggested to ask others to do the top 3. I will be forever grateful for her suggesting this, and opening up the opportunity to involve the entire community with my meme.
As I am a bit of a stats whore (as if you haven’t figured that out yet!), I kept track of the top 3 posts from the moment I started doing it. Thank god for Excel, where I keep track of everything.

New blogs in 2019
In 2019 we had 44 new players for Wicked Wednesday. Unfortunately some of those have linked only one post and disappeared again after that. Some blogs have already been deleted.
As you might know, there is a page with links of all active blogs that participate in Wicked Wednesday.
Please check whether your blog is on there and if not, let me know!
I have only mentioned those who have ended up in the top 5 or 10 or 15, but of course I have statistics for everyone who has ever played along with Wicked Wednesday. Want to know YOUR numbers, please just let me know and I can give it to you (no pun intended).
Last but not least
The only thing that remains is for me to invite you to join in with the prompt of this week, but also as many future prompts as possible, and of course to wish you all the best for 2020. May all your sexy dreams come true!
And don’t forget, prompt 400 will be happening at the end of January 2020, and I would LOVE if that week finally gives me the 50 linked posts I have been dreaming of since I started this meme back in 2012!
