Almost 240,000 visitors later…

Dear friends in Christ,

It is such an encouragement that my two-year blog has had almost 240,000 visitors in the past two years.  This week there have been around 800 people every day checking out the 372 articles, most of which were previously published in mainstream newspapers.

This month of September has seen over 21,000 people check out the blog, paralleling the previous peak month of February 2011.  This response is five times the 4,000 people who visited the blog last September 2010 and ten times the 2,000 people who visited the blog two years ago in September 2009.  My next goal is to double this to 500,000 visitors in the next two years.

Thanks for all your support. May the good news of Jesus touch many through the interesting medium of the internet.

In Christ,

Ed Hird+

Heading towards 150,000 visitors by the end of March

My blog today has reached 140,000 visitors since it was started a year and a half ago.  At this rate, God-willing, there will be 150,000 visitors by the end of March.

For the past nine weeks, it has been reaching 5,000 visitors per week. This February, there were over 21,000 visitors, compared to just 2,000 visitors in September 2009.

Thank you to all of you who have been visiting the website. For those of you who are new, feel free to check out the 300 articles. You are encouraged to invite your FB, Twitter and e-mail friends to also drop by for a visit.

Blessings, Ed Hird+
