Visits to Luthermatrix

So I’ve had Google Analytic looking at the people who visit this blog from the last month. People from 175 cities, 28 countries, and 5 continents visit here! That’s kinda cool!
The most visits come from, as would be expected the US, the UK, and Canada. What I thought was unexpected was the countries that have spent, on average, the most time on my site. Syria comes out on top, followed by Taiwan, and then the Netherlands! I’m not sure why that is.
Looking at the network locations the one that sticks out the most to me is the Moody Bible Institute, from which people have looked at my site for 5 minutes…
The top key words people used to find my site were mental stasis, authority sermon illustrations, Chris Halverson, Zorba the Greek quotes, Did Jesus Lust, Eschatology, and… estonian nude boys. I’m still trying to figure out how they found my blog searching for that last one; the closest I can come up with is this one.
And what does all this tell me? When people look for theological, and literary things, they might find my blog. Also, people from all around the world are able to peer into my little spot on the Internet. So I should try and say something somewhat meaningful when I do post. Also, I suppose that the internet can be used to find things other than thoughts on religion and politics (aka nude estonian boys).

The Beatitudes Society

These folk came to campus today and gave a talk. They describe themselves as the social-justice-minded-ecumenical-Christian equivalent to the Federalist Society. In other words they are nothing like the Federalist society... they may need to work on their use of analogy. I’m contemplating joining.
