My republican sentiments, in the French rather than American sense of that word, suggest that as a good citizen I must eschew this plurality of procreative obsequiences and elect one of them, so I have transitioned to the latter date. It will be more modest to have only one birthday, and will simplify the statistics.

It also allows me, with the tolerance currently accorded to deluded persons, to decide that my year has transitionally stretched from 22 November to 12 December How dare you question my deep chronological convictions? By my 4th Blog Birthday on 22 November I had achieved 1, pageviews and by the time I moved to unz.

Five thousand of those pageviews were probably caused by unz. Pedants should knock that number off. In fact, the blog rattled on for readers who had not heard of my move, so by January it had reached 1,, a clear instance of cultural lag.

Perhaps those readers were in fact lonely bots who had developed refined tastes after imbibing four years of my wisdom. Anyway, I am calling my blogspot total as a midpoint 1, My 5 year total is 1,, which is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

Here are some more results: Top 20 posts Age profile Last year I said: I have written posts over these 4 years. I have achieved more readers than I imagined possible. Getting over a million page views is a big deal for me.

I valued those I got, but the blogspot comment function was not that easy to use, and had a distressing habit of losing everything when you wanted to submit your remarks.

Given the difficulty of leaving comments, I was proud of the fact that my popular post on the 7 Tribes of Intellect had received an all-time record of 63 comments.

The total of the top 10 all-time comments came to and even allowing two comments for every one of the other posts I ever wrote, that would be a 4 year total of at the very most. How does this compare with my year at Unz?

Here I have received 8, comments, and those comments amount to an impressive 1, words. Looking at the figure, it all seems simple.

Pageviews have show a steady and rapid increase. Twitter followers have shown a steady but mild increase. The number of posts has decreased somewhat, though they may have all been a bit longer. Comments and particularly comment words have increased very sharply.

Thank you to readers. Moving to Unz has been a strange experience. I have spent much more time reading comments.
