Thanks again

I started at Freethought Blogs in October 2011.  Since that time my monthly traffic has tripled.

I don’t know what to say.  I think a lot of other bloggers are more informative.  I mostly just write about whatever’s on my mind.  I’m beyond flattered that anybody wants to read any of it.

Here are the most popular posts from the last four months by measure of traffic.

Jessica Ahlquist was totally the bad guy

Peter G. Palumbo needs to get some emails and voted out of office

The last gasps of a desperate man

Four questions atheists won’t address

I’m still assembling a list of fan favorite posts as determined by asking you guys.  Got any favorites from the last four months?

Seriously, every time I look at the traffic this blog gets it boggles my mind.  Christina and I love writing here and we both feel very fortunate to get to know so many people.  Hugs and butt slaps all around.

    My question is not which posts in particular are most awesome but why we get so many viewers and what keeps people coming back.

    I demand an answer!

    • Donald Morton

      Great personality that shines through in the writing.

      It’s the free cookies.

      Part of it is that you guys post a lot! (But not an Alot, although it would be OK if you posted one of those.) I love Greta Christina, for example, but she only posts once every few days. I can come to your blog several times a day, and usually find that you have posted something new and fun since my last visit.

      And I’ve been loving your bidyos about Mountain Dew dissolving mice (or not).

    Haha! The answer is simple: you write well on topics that interest people. Even more, you write with energy, humour and sometimes a touch of totally righteous anger. It may seem like no big deal to you, but you have tapped into a deep well of similar thinking by your many readers.

    Thank you JT and Christina! Love this blog.

    You make me laugh, cry and think. What more could I ask for?

    Ok, sex, but that’s just not fun through a computer screen…

      Don’t let that keep you from asking. ;)
