Happy New Year to all of our blog community from around the world. As has been our tradition on this blog, with the start of 2019, I thought I would wanted to share our annual “State of The Blog” statistics. It has been a great year for the blog with the highest traffic in years with another expansion of roughly 20 percent. We also have an increasingly large international contingent of readers and commenters. We are approaching 36 million views and remain one of the largest legal blogs in the world.
Thanks to all of our regulars and particularly Darren Smith who continues to monitor the blog and write on the weekend. We also now have a twitter following of over 57,000 discerning people.
In addition to the United States, our two leading contributing countries were again Canada and Great Britain among 226 other countries.
Over the last year, the top ten countries outside of the United States were:
2. United Kingdom
7. New Zealand
8. Hong Kong
The most popular post in 2018 was After The Inspector General Report, Questions Grow Over The Lack Of A Criminal Referral For McCabe

We finished 2018 with over 102,000 comments with 1,016 posts. We are approaching 18,000 posts.
Thanks again everyone for making this site and 2018 such a great success!
Best wishes for the New Year!
