Blog Stats

This blog gets more visits than one might expect – it’s certainly not huge, but we probably have 30 or so visitors a day on average, and since we don’t post all that often, that surprises me. But I received a notice that we’ve had a recent spike in visitors, and indeed it is true – yesterday and today we’ve had about 60. Why? Well, most of these views have been of a page we published 5 years ago – entitled “Judith Jarvis on Abortion.” Aha! ‘Tis the season for writing papers for Intro to Ethics courses!

(My other blog, huenemanniac, also gets a steady stream of visitors who are either writing papers on Lon Fuller’s Morality of Law, or they are researching the Collier brothers. It’s strange what ends up being a steady attractor of attention!)
