Today I reached a blog milestone that I have been keeping an eye on for the last couple of weeks.
When I got home from work tonight I checked and found out that one of my posts has reached 10,000 page views.
You can see in this screen shot that my post Walls of Jericho now has 10,000 views.
My post Amish in California? is not far behind and will also reach the milestone later this year.
The Walls of Jericho post has pictures of the ruins of Jericho and also has information about the history and size of the city. I also share some of my impressions of the site from when I visited there back in 2012. Click on the link to learn more.
The image is a bit hard to see, but here is a graph of views over time. You can see some large spikes from days where the post had a lot of views, but overall you can tell that it has received regular traffic over the past four years.
It is not visible in the graph above, but I seem to get the most views on Saturdays and Sundays. I assume that it is Bible teachers or students looking for more information for Sunday morning classes.
Amish in California? has also had regular traffic over time, but recently it has tailed off. It also does not have the large traffic spikes so the scale is different and it is easier to see the changes in traffic over time.
When I wrote these two posts more than four years ago I did not imagine that they would be my most viewed posts over time. Perhaps some day they will be superseded, but not anytime soon.
