This post is the 1001th post on TheStutteringBrain blog! We need to celebrate. When I was starting to write in 2005, I was not sure whether I would keep up with publishing but I did! I also have nearly 100 followers, and 20'000 page views per month.
Below is the graph of the evolution over time. You can see that the increase is relatively linear, but will probably level off in the next years. The numbers also depend on how many posts I write. But overall I am getting close to half a million visits to the blog.
A great majority of my readers are from the US, followed by the UK and Germany, but readers are from all around the world. I receive a few emails every week from readers from asking for advice to sending my interesting information what certain people or association privately do.
I am very likely the most popular and most read blog on stuttering. Number of awards received from stuttering community: ZERO. Number of awards received by Emily Blunt for saying: I stuttered. ONE. Number of people invited for key note speeches for being famous or rich, for talking about their miraculous recovery from mild stuttering, for scientific sloppiness or propagating crackpot ideas: TOO MANY. Number of emails received from readers thanking me and saying that they like my blog: HUNDREDS. Speaks volumes.
