It seems that this is my 900th bloggage. That’s 900 separate posts – probably the best part of 500,000 words with 526 different subject categories and 814 tags spread over just 10 pages. Amazingly I have only used 10% of my space allocation on WordPress. There have been 319 approved comments and I have been protected from 11,717 spam comments.
There have been over 44,000 views of my blog on WordPress (plus 23,000 from when it was hosted elsewhere) and that doesn’t include the people who receive bloggages directly through email. The most views on one day is 375. The largest number of visitors are from Britain (almost half of all visits), followed in order by USA, India, Canada, Australia, Germany and the Philippines. I have had visits on the site from people in 160+ different countries across the globe, which is the vast majority of nation states!
Of course not everyone came to the bloggage to read my bloggerel. Some will have come by mistake – looking for other items through search engines that have somehow linked them to me. The most popular search term that lands people here is… Some of you may recall my joy when the most popular search term was ‘Elmer Fudd’. Indeed I almost made it onto Google’s first page when you searched for ‘Elmer Fudd’ at the height of that silliness! But Elmer Fudd is only 1/3 as popular as the most popular search term that lands people here. What do you think it is?
It’s ‘Bugatti Veyron’! Which is very interesting because this blog is nowhere near the top of the list of suggestions on the most popular search engine mentioned (but not necessarily endorsed) above.
What does all this tell you? If you only read this information what do you find out about me and this blog? Other than that I am a bit of a statgeek you don’t know much about it. Sadly a lot of people have the same approach about the Christian faith. They know about it (from RE or visits for ‘hatch, match and despatch’ services). They hear about it in the media (often negative). But all they know is about it.
If you want to get to understand my blog and get to know me a bit more (unless you live locally) the best way is to read the bloggages. I’m not suggesting that you have to read them: I would much rather you spent your time trying to find out more about the person who motivates and inspires me – the carpenter from Nazareth who has transformed the world and transcends history. But if it helps you to catch of glimpse of him through me and this bloggage it will have been worth it.
Thank you for visiting: be blessed, be a blessing.
