On August 13, 2018 at around 10:15 pm, BoothieBarn officially reached over one million views!
While the vast majority of the visitors to this site come from the United States, this blog has been able to make a splash internationally as well. Here’s a map showing all the places that have visited BoothieBarn.com since its founding in 2012.
Granted, the map isn’t completely filled up. Clearly I have to do more outreach in places like Chad, Greenland, Lesotho, Tajikistan, Svalbard, the Solomon Islands, Djibouti, and others. Still, I’m very pleased this site has found such a global audience especially since it deals with a uniquely American story.
Here are some more numbers to mark this milestone:
453 = total number of posts on this blog (so far)
629 = average words per post in 2012
756 = total number of blog followers
2,354 = age of the blog in days
3,119 = average words per post in 2018
6,072 = highest number of views in a single day. It occurred on April 14, 2015, the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination
15,633 = average views per month in 2017
401,904 = total number of words contained in all the blog posts here on BoothieBarn
I’d just like to thank you, the readers, for all of your support and community over these past six years. I’m especially grateful to those of you who have graciously donated to this site through Patreon. I have been blown away by the level of generosity and am so very appreciative of it. With this level of continued support, I’m hoping to bring even more exciting things to BoothieBarn in the future. With one million views there’s no stopping us.
Thank you all for reading, commenting, and giving to BoothieBarn.
Dave (and Kate) Taylor
