Yesterday I took a good look at the statistics for this blog for the first time in a while. It turns out that I’ve got readers from all sorts of places. The majority of you are Americans, unsurprisingly (I’m based here in New England). But to my amazement, apparently over the past year this site’s gotten hits from 66 other countries. A lot of those are from Canada, the UK, and India. But it also looks like there’s someone in Singapore following regularly, for instance, and I’ve gotten a smattering of hits from places like Ivory Coast, Moldova, and Iraq. Pretty awesome.
This site is pointless without its readers, of course, and thus I owe everyone who’s followed it over the past two-and-a-half years a debt of gratitude. The truth, however, is that readership has seemed to hit a bit of a plateau recently. If you’re reading this, consider it a request to invite your friends to check out the site and sign up for email updates on the left-hand side of the page.
This may be obvious, but it’s worth saying again: Although Fruit Tree is labeled a “Baha’i economics blog”, and a lot of what’s discussed revolves around the Baha’i Faith, this site is not for Baha’is per se. The whole point of starting the blog was to attract everyone who feels that spirituality, ethics, and civility need to be play a role in our material lives. So please keep that in mind when you think about whom to invite to join in.
Thanks for reading, and SHARE THIS BLOG!!!
