Last September, we passed the 23,000,000 mark and today we hit 24,000,000. We have used these moments to give thanks for our many regular readers around the world and give you an idea of the current profile of readers on the blog. We continue to rank in the top legal blogs in the world and I am particularly gladdened by the growing international readership. As always, I want to offer special thanks for our weekend contributors: Mike Appleton, Larry Rafferty, Charlton Stanley, Darren Smith, and Kimberly Dienes. The increasing traffic on the site is gratifying and reaffirms that there are many people looking for mature and civil debate. Even among the top ten sites, I believe that we offer a unique forum of different views and backgrounds in the discussion of law and politics (and a few quirky items).
In the last 30 days, our ten biggest international sources for readers came from
1. United States
3. United Kingdom
8. The Netherlands
The list has remained unchanged except France moved ahead of India and China has made it into the top ten despite the limitations on Internet access.
The top ten posted in terms of readership in the last 30 days were:
1. TURLEY AGREES TO SERVE AS LEAD COUNSEL FOR HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IN CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGE
2. Why is it Illegal to Feed the Homeless?
3. The Purging of Professor Gruber: ACA Architect Disavowed In The Beltway
4. FSU Shooter Identified As Lawyer And Former Prosecutor Myron May [Updated]
5 HOUSE FILES CHALLENGE OVER THE CHANGES TO THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT
6. 10 Reasons The U.S. Is No Longer The Land Of The Free
7. Looting Breaks Out In Ferguson After Grand Jury Refuses Charges Against Wilson
8. Obamacare Architect States That The Law Was Only Passed Due To “The Lack of Transparency” and The “Stupidity of the American Voter” UPDATED
9. FERGUSON AND THE MEANING OF “JUSTICE”
10. Not So Fast: Obama Administration Waits Until Election Eve To Dump Over 64,000 Pages In Fast and Furious
I am particularly happy to report that the second most popular story this cycle was written by our weekend blogger Lawrence E. Rafferty.
