Status Report for martinfowler.com at the end 2014

Running the martinfowler.com site is a large part of my job at ThoughtWorks. Traditionally it has got more traffic than our main site, although that is happily set to change as our main site improves. My site is a vehicle for us to influence the industry as part of our pillar 2 work.

Site Report for 2018

At the start of 2019, it seems like a good idea to review the state of martinfowler.com. I did a brief review of the site back in 2014, so it's well past time to take another look at the traffic it generates.

Retread

I don't like writing things that are ephemeral, I prefer to write things that I think are going to stay useful for many years. That's a big part of my philosophy with books, and it's my intention for what's on this web site too. To a large extent, I feel I have succeeded. If I look at the top ten pages on my site , I see Dependency Injection (2004), Continuous Integration (2006), Mocks Aren't Stubs (2007), GUI Architectures (2006), and The New Methodology (2005) in the top ten. While I can always improve on articles it's good to see things I've written several years ago still being useful.

Despite the staying power of some popular articles, most of my site gets much less traffic than a new post, so I've decided to start a series of retread posts. A retread is a reposting of an old post. I'll put it into my site feed and tweet it, just as I do my new posts. I will clearly mark such posts as retreads. I will check any post I retread and ensure it's still relevent and worth reading now as it was then. I may make some corrections as I do this, but I expect to mostly leave the posts as they were. I expect to post a retread once or maybe twice a week.

Rss Feeds

I have a couple of feeds for those who like to use them. Although I've used the term RSS Feed here, they are actually Atom feeds.

What Isa Bliki

I've been watching the blog scene develop for a while, and it's impossible to not want to join in. But there are things I'm not so keen about blogs. For a start the name, as my colleague Mike Two puts it, "blog sounds like something I should pay a physician to remove". Beyond the name, however, there's the very ephemeral nature of blog postings. Short bursts of writing that might be interesting when they are read - but quickly age. I find writing too hard to want to spend it on things that disappear.
