Happy PhilosFX Day!

At midnight UTC (8 pm Eastern) between 6 and 7 Aug, we completed 60 months (5 years!) together. Five years of musing, writing, sharing, and inquiring about this wonderful world of ours. Five years! 


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. 
Thanks for reading and helping celebrate five years of Philosophy + Special Effects here at PhilosFX!
