About this page

I love data. And I love R. R is free and open source and facilitates simple and advanced data manipulation, analysis, and visualization. I use R a lot. But I don’t always know how to do the thing I want to do. Most annoyingly, I often forget how to do a thing that I know I learned in the past. I started this blog so that I could store and organize the tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way. There are a thousand (millions?) of great and helpful posts for R help on sites like cross-validated and stack exchange and whole blogs devoted to subsets of R, many (all?) of which are more sophisticated that this site. I probably cannot answer complicated R questions. But maybe you are like me and cannot remember how to take the title off a plot in ggplot if you haven’t done it in several months. If so, this site might have some answers for you!
