All but one of these posts (the On Being There post) have a common link, they got links from Glenn Reynolds’ Instapundit blog, who sent this site 51 percent of its visitors. Mighty Google only accounted for about half that. Others non-search engine sites among the top referrers were Twitter, piratenews.org, knoxviews, facebook, econlog.econlib.org and saysuncle.com. Thanks to all and wishes for a happy New Year.
