As a bit of a numbers geek, I thought it would be fun to celebrate with a statistical snapshot illustrating a year of growth and change:
- Total views have climbed 52% to 201,692 from 132,500 this time last year
- First-time views rose 43% to 42,619 vs, 29,770 after four years. 35% of all first-time views are from outside the United States.
- Countries with at least one unique visitor barely increased to 189 from 187 a year ago. It's getting harder to add new countries. However, all of the top 48 countries have at least 35 unique visitors.
- In terms of content, we have now published 836 posts (this will be 837), which is a 12% increase over the 746 we had last year.
