One hour ago, our blog passed the 14,000,000 viewer. The fact that we only recently passed the 13,000,000 viewer mark reflects the impressive growth of this blog. Congratulations everyone. Now if we could only get .000001 of those viewers to vote for us on the ABA blog competition we could crush the competition! If you (are any distant relative, incompetent ward, or pet) has not voted, you can vote here and cast your vote today!
In the last twenty-four hours, our five biggest international sources for readers became from Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Sweden, Germany, Philippines, India, Mexico, and France (in that order with Canada as the number one contributing country). We continue to hover around 10th in the most popular legal worlds in the world, according to AVVO.
I wanted to thank our weekend bloggers: David Drumm, Mark Esposito, Gene Howington, Michael Spindell, Eliane Magliaro, Mike Appleton, and Larry Rafferty. I wanted to particularly thank our contributors. This blog offers a unique mix of views from people committed to civil discussion of the major issues of our time. While we often disagree, we offer a place for reasonable and respectful debate. I am incredibly grateful to all of our regulars. In the last 24 hours, the most active commentators were (starting with the highest appearance) Idealist707, Nick Spinelli, Shano, Anonymously Yours, Gene H, Elaine M, and Justagurlinseattle.
Thanks again everyone and congratulations on reaching another milestone!

Congratulations to you professor, and Thank you for your kind words about the guest bloggers. I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to present ideas to discuss on the weekends. Where else can that happen?
I am only a dog. I feel my voice is lost amongst the fourteen million. I tried barkin at humans for years and only got a pet on the head or a kick in the rear but no replies. Then I got on to this Dogalogue Machine that allows my bark and growls to get turned into printed humanoid talk on this blog. But few on the blog pay attention. I am back to being a dog. Bark, bark.
Having lived in Chicago, I made sure my deceased parents and sister voted. Thanks to Mr. Turley, the guest bloggers, and all the commenters here. This is an interesting and informative blog. However, the humor is what sets it apart from many. Being able to laugh, particularly laugh @ ourselves, is very important for emotional health.
I’d like to take this opportunity to get some well-deserved apple polishing out of the way and on behalf of all the guest bloggers thank our host Professor Turley for providing this venue. A venue I have found to be unique in voice and methodology even though the topics are usually derived from today’s headlines. There is no other blog quite like it.
using the cattle prodsending out a friendly request to family and friends this week to ask for votes.
Whether you be lurker or commentator, if you’ve ever been entertained, informed, pleased or aggravated by this blog, I join Mike S. in asking you to take a moment and do the same. While we have punched above our weight in years past to earn victory, the new ABA categorization really puts the scales in favor of competition larger than we have ever faced. If you’ve ever wanted to be Team David in a David and Goliath story? This is your chance to be Team David.
Get out the vote, Blog Peoples!
I went over to Daily Kos and begged for votes on one of the most popular morning features. That ought to be good for a few more.
I have voted and I have urged my friends and family to vote via Email and Facebook.. Many have, even though they were’t familiar with the blog and in reading it came away impressed. Yet we are lagging behind. Please contact your own friends and family and ask if they will vote. It is a worthy cause and takes but a small amount of ones’ time.
Congrats! I voted, too. Just one more vote to cross into triple digits.
We aim to please. I am not as active commenting as I would like, but don’t have as much discretionary time as I wish. Happy milestone, and many more.
We all do our part some way…. Congratulations….. To everyone…… Thank you for a Free Speech site in which one does not have to pay to play…. Ie…. Such as cookies….. And unsolicited emails….. Etc…..
