Statistical Navel Gazing

There is a norm in the blogosphere that every ten thousand visitors or so, a blog is supposed to engage in a bit of statistical navel gazing. We are pleased to point out that in the last day or two we passed the 30,000 visitors mark.

As some of you may know, this blog began its life as a joint venture between some of the most obnoxious posters on the ldslaw e-mail list. When I look back at those heady days of long ago (November 19, 2003) when Time & Seasons first hit the internet, I can see how far we have come. In those early days we were still on blogspot, and the ranks of the permenant bloggers were still un-diluted by any non-lawyers. We were young (execept for Gordon of course. This was before Russell, Jim, and Kristine joined the team) but we had a dream. A dream to be “Quite possibly the most _____ yet _____ onymous Mormon group blog in history.” All I can say is that we seem to have succeeded.

We are now getting something in the neighborhood of 500 to 600 visitors a day, and the numbers seem to be increasing. We are not quite certain as to why this is so, although I think it may have something to do with the fact that most of the vistors have not met us in real life. (Both Adam and I have some very disconcerting tics that seem to make people in the “real world” uncomfortable.)

Thanks for coming. Thanks for commenting. Tell a friend about T&S and pass on the joy.

    Nate,
    I’m wondering which of my tics you had in mind? I’d like to know so I can take it out and cherish it. My Preciouss, yess, my Preciouss . .

    Wow, has it only been four months?

    By the way, if the exponential growth in readership persists (increasing by a factor of ten every four months), my back-of-the-envelope computation suggests everyone on the planet should be visiting T&S daily by about August 2006.

    Congrats T&Sers. Someday you’ll look back and tell your grandkids that you remember when the Mormon Bloggernacle was invented. ;) Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the nice sentiments Dave and Brayden. Unfortunately, I am not sure how much longer these weary bones will hold out. I may not last until 2006. But the young pups will carry on admirably …
