Happy Sixth Birthday Upon Hope

It's been a good year for the blog, I've been very happy with the quality of my writing although I need an editor. I do feel that I am starting to repeat myself, I even have to check if I've used a title before. It is good to read some of my older posts and to see that I'm as happy with them as I am with my more recent ventures.

The First Melbourne Traditionalists Conference was held in October and was a great success, this year the plan is bigger and better. To get a taste check out my talk.

The meetings of the Melbourne Traditionalists has gone from strength to strength this year. The most recent meetings have broken our previous attendance records. It's been a great twelve months and I really hope it keeps growing.

I have had 190,768 visitors to this blog in the last 6 years, this is the first year in which numbers have dropped.

2013  15,000 visitors
2014  20,000 visitors'
2015  30,000 visitors
2016  38,000 visitors
2017  44,000 visitors
2018  43,000 visitors

Only a slight decline I guess.

My most clicked on article remains What do Traditional Conservatives Believe? which has been clicked on 6263 times. My least clicked on article is Taxes, Budgets and the Economy which has only been clicked on 44 times, which is a great shame.

My visitors fall into three categories, Americans make up around 40%, Australians are about 15% and the rest of the world make up the rest at 45%. Much the same as last year.

Below are the top 10 articles that have been clicked on with the number of visitors each has received.

The list will be different from the list on your left as I believe that they are weighted towards more recent clicks.

I have forgotten the difference between a "Referring URL" and a "Referring Site", however here they are.
