Monthly Community Health Check - October 2018

Mar Häusler • 17 November 2018

Every month, I will be looking at the statistics behind the community activity, making observations and suggestions for how to focus the community facilitation. Please let me know what you think...


General contribution

The Schumacher Network closed the month of October with 880 users.


About 26 in total have contributed by either producing a blog post, resource, discussion, event or just 'post' in the stream - or liking or commenting instead.

These were mostly in the form of 'posts', and 'likes' and 'comments' on posts: like status updates, posts are quick updates that go by in the flow of the stream. They are good starting points for us to find our voices and get used to exchanging in the community. There were 89 'likes' and 43 'comments' to posts.


Writing longer-term content

The more long-term content, which gives the community more fibre to digest, are the 'Topics' (blogs, resources, discussions). There many new topics added by new members in the community with interesting blogs shared - 15, and these were liked and commented on.



1 new group was created by members in October. We note that the groups have been created, but have modest discussion in them - this is common in all broad communities.

We will always do our best to champion all the groups, by making it as easy as possible to find them!

We will capture the KPIs every month and share them. You can always see the KPIs in this spreadsheet:
