I am very happy to announce that the Data Mining Blog has reached the millestone of 1 million visits today.
I have started this blog 6 years ago, with the goal of sharing articles related to data mining, artificial intelligence, research, and academia. In particular, I often post articles to give my perspective on academia and some advices about doing research, reports about some conferences that I attend, and also sometimes some tutorials, videos and interviews.
I have in general tried to post 3 or 4 blog posts every month, while sometimes I did a bit more or less. The goal has always been to prefer quality over quantity.
One principle that I have applied for this blog and my other websites is that information should be free. Thus, there is no external advertisement on this blog and my other websites. I only put some links to my own websites from this website to link them with each other.
Over the years, I have also received a few offers to be paid to publish some blog posts written by some companies. But I have always refused as I think it would lower the quality of this website.
I have also been quite happy to read all the comments posted on this blog. Many people have written comments over the year, and we have had some nice discussions.
Thanks for your support! 🙂
