My Happy 3rd Blog-Birthday Message to You

Posted by on October 10, 2012 in Featured, Thoughts | 2 comments

Today marks the third anniversary of my very first ever blog post which was titled “Welcome to the Atheist Climber blog”. The main spin of my inaugural blog post was described thus:

This will be a combination of my considered thoughts about science, nature and religion, as well as politics, atheism and the occasional rant about stuff that pisses me off. This will not be about religion-bashing, although atheism is the main diver of this space. If you are easily offended, you may be offended. If, however, you are a freethinker and would like to read the viewpoint of a person who sees the world using logic, reason and historical fact, then you’re in the right place. I aim to inform, educate and challenge. Hopefully this blog achieves that goal. I don’t want to make this a depressive rant about all that’s wrong in the world, rather I would like to keep it entertaining and informative.

Now I think I have kept to this vision, and for the most part, have managed to stay civil, considered and rational. I know I haven’t agreed with all of my readers, and they haven’t always agreed with me, but this is a learning experience for all of us, and I hope I have offered a new avenue for you to learn, reflect and consider an outside viewpoint, namely mine.

Just to give you an idea of what has happened on my blog over the past 3 years, here are some stats to keep you amused.

Days Active: 1096
Comments: 3,707
Individual Page Hits: 500,798 (I hit the half-million mark on the weekend!)
Average Hits Per Day: 457
Words Published:
Average Words Per Post: 796
Most Hits in One Day: 5,773 mostly for my Greydon Square and PZ Myers interviews from 2010.

That’s a fair achievement even if I do say so myself. But of course I couldn’t have had this kind of response if it weren’t for you, the readers. Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to another 365 days of blogging.
