Website Update - Top 10 Page List for December 2015

Top 10 ListI'm back from the holidays (other than a short weekend trip to San Antonio, I didn't 'leave' - I just took some time off from work and so didn't have lunch breaks to work on this blog), and with the end of the year, it's time to look at the server logs for December to see what pages were most popular on the site. The list was mostly the same pages that have been popular for the last few months, but there were two surprises. The entry, Response to E-mail: One Nation Under Wal-Mart?, made the list for only the second time. It's kind of old, written back in 2013, but maybe with the upcoming election season the chain mail I was responded to has started making the rounds again. Similarly, the entry, Response to Another E-mail on U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, made it for the first time ever. It's another entry from 2013 that I can only guess is popular because of recent politics (though December was too early for Obama's recent series of executive actions designed to curb gun violence to have had any effect on traffic on this site).

There were not big surprises this time. Every page that made the list had made it before, though it had been a little while for one of the pages (What's the Point of Intercessory Prayer?).

Overall traffic was in line with the rest of the year, and up just a bit from the past couple months. In fact, by two metrics, Visits and Pages, it was the busiest month of the year, though by other metrics, like Unique Visitors, Hits, and Bandwidth, a few other months did better.

Anyway, here's the list for December.
