accountableblogging.com/post-frequency.

I'm working on tools to help budding bloggers and content creators take the leap

dev.to has short feeds (15 items) but you should be able to see something like this:

I've also launched on Indie Hackers here, let me know what you think.

That's pretty neat. Though when you mention dev.to displaying short feeds, is it using what's displayed on my profile to count posts?

I'm only asking btw. My profile isn't a good example to use since I've only posted a few times.

dev.to RSS feeds are 15 items long so if you post quite often it won't look nice (just a couple of bars for the latest weeks)

Very neat.

Should DEV have something like this? πŸ€”

We've tried to avoid stuff that could lead to unhealthy "grinding"-style gamification. But this is pretty neat and folks tend to have fun with the GitHub version.

I'll open the floor for thoughts on this topic.

I think if you make it a weekly-sized thing it's definitely more realistic/healthy than the day per day breakdown GitHub gives you.
