Res Ipsa Hits 66,000,000

crowd vj dayLast night, Res Ipsa passed the 66,000,000 mark in views on the blog. We have used these moments to give thanks for our many regular readers around the world and share our traffic data to give you an idea of the current profile of readers around the world. We do not have a running data page so these periodic postings allow our community to see the traffic profile of our blog. So let’s get at it.

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 our editor Kristin Oren, who continues her amazing work proofing posts on a daily basis to remove my embarrassing typos.  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.

We have continued to post significantly higher traffic numbers for each month this year. As I mentioned in the end-of-year summary, December was the best month in the history of the blog and we are doubling or tripling the traffic from prior years. This month is on track to set another record for January.

So here is our current profile:

As of this morning, we have exactly 21,000 posts and 1,228,948 comments. We have also continued with the rise of Twitter followers since the Musk takeover. We are currently at over 402,000 Twitter followers.  We have roughly 7,000 people who signed up for alerts by emails.

In the last month, our ten biggest international sources for readers came from:

  1. United States
    2. Canada
    3. United Kingdom
    4. Australia
    5. Germany
    6. Mexico
    7. “Unknown region”
    8. Netherlands
    9. France
    10. New Zealand

The top five posts in terms of readership in the last month were:

  1. Censor or Else: Democratic Members Warn Facebook Not to “Backslide” on Censorship
  2. The Justice Department Faces Questions After Effectively Preventing Bankman-Fried from Testifying in Congress
  3. Sen. Cardin: Hate Speech is Not Protected by First Amendment

  1. At the risk of sounding ‘overly dramatic’…Jonathan Turley is one of the very few who reliably provides a breath of fresh air by combining knowledge, common sense with a large dose of reasoning and often times, critical reasoning!

  2. Regardless of the time zone in which I find myself, my day always starts with your blog, Prof. Turley. Quite honestly, I often go on a news diet, but still read only your blog and Sharyl Attkisson’s. I figure the only other important headlines to me are if the stock market crashes à la 1929 or WWIII breaks out, both of which seem increasingly likely, and that you or Ms. Attkisson will inform us. Onward and upward into 2023. God willing, we’ll be wishing each other the same in 12 months.

  3. Thank you Professor Turley for standing in the breach. Your truth does indeed speak for itself. Such bravery is uncommon in a land where so many are careful of what they speak. May Gods grace be a shelter for you and yours.

  4. Good afternoon Mr. Turkey,
    I start my day with your posts. Very reasoned and always on point. I think the 400+ elected, and untold appointed should begin their days this way. I believe that it might remove a little of the vitriol. Thank you for your fortitude and insight. Tom

  5. That means that, THANKS TO YOU, there is a minimum of 402,000 persons (plus ?? k or M blog followers independent of Twitter) who are better versed in, and more cognizant/understanding of, legal issues that affect us all. What a legacy!

  6. As others have said here…thank you! This is a wonderful place to be for rational thought. Looking forward to what 2023 will bring to your readership. Onward!

  7. Thank you all for what you do. I really appreciate it.

    Maybe I’ve missed it, but is there a donate or support button?
