Last night, we passed the 43,000,000 mark in views on the blog. The blog continues to grow at a record and accelerating pace. The continued growth 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 with 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:
Yesterday, we hit 19,185 posts — an amazing figure. We have also experienced a huge increase in those following us by email and Twitter. On Twitter alone, we now have roughly 200,000 active followers.
In the last 90 days, our ten biggest international sources for readers came from:
1. United States
3. United Kingdom
7. European Union
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.
