WordPress.com sent me an annual report for my blog, which nicely summarized some of the information I wanted to know most, like how many people visited my site and what were the most popular posts (see below). Although modest in comparison to many other blogs about guns and gun culture, I exceeded my own expectations for 2014 by quite a bit.
The discourse about guns in society continues to be marred by excessive heat and insufficient light. So, looking forward to 2015, I am going to try to keep in mind the fundamental approach of this blog:
Gun Culture 2.0 is inspired by philosopher Baruch Spinoza: “I have sedulously endeavored not to laugh at human actions, nor to lament them, nor to detest them, but to understand them.”
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 31,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
