Concurring Opinions recently celebrated its birthday. We started this blog back in October 2005, and we’re now 1 year old — I guess that’s middle-age in blogosphere years. In the past year, we’ve had over 740,000 visitors, and we’re averaging between 2200 to 2400 per day. I’d like to thank all our readers and commenters. I, for one, would not enjoy blogging without readers and commentators — who wants to blog into the blankness of cyberspace and get heard by nobody? So thanks for listening and responding.
The recent Concurring Opinions readership poll reveals that our readers are a diverse and interesting group of people (you can participate here if you haven’t participated already). Thus far, about 340 people have taken the poll. We have nearly 100 law professors and law professor wannabe readers, plus nearly 100 lawyers and law clerks, about 70 law students, over 10 professors from other fields, and many businesspeople, technologists, and people in other professions. And our totally-scientific 100% accurate poll has revealed that 8 Supreme Court Justices are among our readers. I hope they convince that lone holdout Justice to join the ranks of our readers.
