In the last 365 days, an additional 113 postings have focused on a variety of topics with the economic environment and athletic budgets serving as the primary issue by a wide margin. My favorite topic is the RPI. And the posting that I most enjoyed writing also received the most attention - Sports Leadership by the Stadium Lights. The result has been steady growth.
Today, USI (some friends like to refer to the blog this way, but the domain name is already owned by a phone company) has achieved a level of readership that I would have laughed at had someone suggested it during the paltry numbers of USI's early days. The most recent statistics include:
- 27,232 visitors (includes individuals who return to the site more than once);
- 14,984 unique visitors (counts each individual person once, regardless of how many times they visit);
- 820 visitors in a single day (October 7, 2009); and
- Readers in 84 countries (United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, India, Belgium, Brazil, Netherlands, and Philippines are the top ten countries).
