I am continuing with providing monthly statistics of my blog. There are several interesting statistics that I think I can share with you that can also provide insights into the Bitcoin universe in general.
Firstly, an overall view:
The number of visits was a little over 5200, which is a first of course. The number of unique visitors came close to 4300.
Here are the top 5 most popular posts on this blog:
The big story for this blog was calling out a glaring error on the part of Wired when the wrote an otherwise very good piece on how the homeless can use Bitcoin to survive, except that it is probably not the brightest idea for everyone. The reason the article seemed so plausible was that it inflated the expected earnings by a factor of 10. Try asking your boss for that kind of a raise. GPT industry is discussed to death and I won’t go into the details here, but suffice it to say that you should do your (right) math in terms of your time and money you earn before getting into the industry.
Here are the top posts:
4. Free Bitcoin
There were other interesting developments. For example, Jon Matonis, the executive director of Bitcoin Foundation tweeted my 5000+ word resource guide on free Bitcoin:

Location wise, I had visitors from exactly 99 countries which isn’t too shabby. I saw growth in my readership in the African continent that I am glad for, including countries like South Africa, Kenya, Morocco, Algeria, Tanzania, etc. However, here are the top countries:
France and Brazil joined this list while China and Russia are out. Netherlands is still on the list. The top countries in the month of September for this blog were US, Canada, UK, Germany, Denmark, Australia, India, Netherlands, Brazil and France. Finland unfortunately didn’t make even the top 25 this time around, but it’s Nordic neighbor Sweden came in at 12th. Again, this is significant because of the population. I’ll run a per-capita visitor analysis sometime to dig deeper into this.
Here are the 10 most popular cities for this month:
The list reads San Fransisco, New York, London, Copenhagen, Riverside, Los Angeles, Bording, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne. Copenhagen is right up there at 5th, which is quite interesting. Lots of cities from California. San Fransisco has greatly narrowed the gap between itself and New York.
I also published 12 posts in the month of September.
Any other kinds of statistics you’d like to see?
