Res Ipsa yesterday passed the 56,000,000 mark in views on the blog. 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 and our readership around the world. 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. I also want to thank Kristin Oren who has been proofing posts on a daily basis to remove my embarrassing typos and errors. (I have to note that my original line thanking Kristin had a typo that she corrected). Finally, I would like to thank our regular readers who alert me to typos or any violations of the civility or copyright policies on the blog.
So here is our current profile:
As of this morning, we have over 20,394 posts and roughly 1,200,000 comments. We are now approaching 250,000 Twitter followers. We have 6,100 people who signed up for alerts by emails.
In the last month, our ten biggest international sources for readers came from:
1. United States
3. United Kingdom
The top five posts in terms of readership in the month were:
- “We’re Breaking Her, Keep Going”: ACLU Strategist Issues Chilling Tweet Against Sinema
- The Oath Keepers: What the Indictment Says and Does Not Say About the January 6 Riot
- The Eight Degrees of Ignorance and Stupidity
So that’s the update. I cannot thank our regulars enough for their support of the blog. This is an expanding vibrant community and it is a great pleasure to see our community expanding around the world.
