Another year on the blogger Roller Coaster, I read earlier in the year that most Conservative bloggers give up after two years as not much if anything has changed. I feel like giving up at times, but then I think about the alternative. The alternative is just surrendering to Liberalism and becoming a passive Conservative, but I don't find that idea very appealing.
Visitor numbers have grown and thats a positive thing. The Melbourne Traditionalists are also having regular bi-monthly meetings. Things are moving positively in the right direction. Still a long way to go, but I feel that we are moving.
I have had 35,364 visitors since I started, 20,000 in this past year.
My most clicked on post is What do Traditional Conservatives believe? which has been clicked on 1,642 times. My least clicked on post is The Third Month, which has only been clicked on 13 times. My visitors fall into 3 groups, 40% Americans, down from 60% last year. Australians are roughly the same as last year at 20% and the rest of the world has increased from 20% to 40%. As overall numbers have increased that has meant that each group has grown, but the rest of world has grown bigger.
Blogger provides me with some graphs, which I'll show you. Here's the Roller Coaster I was talking about at the start.
The worst month since last March was June when I had 1,312 visitors and the best was December when I had 1,923 visitors. But as you can see the graph is trending upwards, unlike last year when things were much more unstable. The graph seems to end on a downward trend, but that only shows the first 1/3rd of this month.

I still have no idea what the difference between a "Referring URL" and "Referring Sites" is, but I present it here anyway, just as I did last year.
