I suspect that we have fewer subscribers than many other blogs because a person can receive notifications about comments without being subscribed.
The page with the most followers was Name Forrest’s Kitty Contest page followed by No Paddle Up Your Creek, Safety First, Fundamental Guidelines and Home of Brown.
I have not got a whiff of a clue how much (if any) revenue the ads pull in because Chris takes care of that and the revenue (if there is any) goes directly to him to compensate for maintenance and technical assistance with the site.
In previous years Google was the most common search engine used to find the blog but this year it was Facebook.
