Ironically I never started this blog to be a writer, I started it because I want things to change. I still do. And I often wonder if I serve any purpose, but one good thing about the internet is that I get to see if anyone is reading, well to be honest I can never know if anyone has read it or simply clicked on it. Currently I'm getting over 2000 visitors a month, slowly, very slowly the site grows, it's a long way from when I started. The only way things can improve is by moving offline and into the real world. But my attempt to do that has failed and currently I am a writer.
I have had 66,407 visitors since I started, 30,000 in the last year.
My most clicked on article is What do Traditional Conservatives Believe? which has been clicked on 3230 times, My least clicked on article is Taxes, Budgets and the Economy which has only been clicked on 20 times!
Over the past three years Americans have made up around 45% of my visitors, the next country is Australia at 15% and then the rest of the world combined covers the remaining 40%. No other single country is over 10%.
Here are some graphs that Blogger provides me.
The big spike is from March last year when I had 4,523 visitors, as you can see by far my best month. Before that I had not been able to get above 2000, since then I have not gone below 2000. My worst month this year was September when I had 2,148. Over the long view you can see that while each month goes up or down overall the trend is upwards. The last month seems to be down but that is the current month which is only 1/3rd through.

I still have no idea what the difference between a ""Referring URL" and "Referring Sites" is, but as I've presented the last two years it seems shame not to this year.
