Last night, we passed the 40,000,000 mark in views on the blog. It is an amazing level of traffic that continues to grow on the blog. When my wife’s family set up this blog on a vacation years ago (to nudge me into modern technology), I never imagined that it would become one of the largest legal blogs. It is a distinction that is due primarily to our loyal readers who return every day to discuss contemporary legal, political, and occasionally bizarre stories. 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 proud of our growing international readership. As always, I want to offer special thanks for Darren Smith who has continued to help manage the blog and help out folks who encounter posting problems.
So here is our current profile:
We are currently approaching 300,000 followers on the blog email subscription and Twitter. We have an additional 11,042 followers on WordPress.
We have almost 19,000 blog posts with almost 100 comments per post on average.
In the last 90 days, our ten biggest international sources for readers came from:
1. United States
3. United Kingdom
8. European Union
9. New Zealand
The top five posted in terms of readership in the last 90 days are:
Thank you to all of our regular commentators. We remain an extraordinarily broad and diverse body of commenters from different parts of the world and different political and social backgrounds. Thanks again.
