Today is the six-month anniversary of the blog. Using a bit of extrapolation from the period of time when I wasn’t collecting stats, it appears we have had about 115,000 hits since the beginning, with 163 posts and 1079 comments to this point.
More interesting to me is to note which posts have generated the most traffic, and here is a list of topics read more than 500 times (with times read listed first):

I was going to include in this post a bit of analysis about what these numbers suggest, but I think I’ll put that off for now to see if others want to comment on what they see here.
