At the end of the year it’s time for statistics. All Considering has now been up about 18 months and is developing a steady readership. Over the whole year it had 48,542 visits from 155 countries according to google analytics. Most (29,284) of those visitors came from the USA. 215 people are now subscribed to this blog. I’ve blogged about Buddhism, Christianity, Spiritual Growth and more.
In terms of traffic the most significant event was my post about mindfulness, which drew 7000 visitors from stumbleupon on one day. In the two weeks that followed, it got about 30,000 visits, dwarfing all my other traffic.
