The Inforrm blog yesterday reached one million hits – 2 years and 3 months after our launch. Once again, we would like to thank all our readers and the many people who have contributed to the success of the blog over this period and particularly those who have written for us over the past two years. We reached 500,000 hits in June 2011 – after 17 months – and we have had a further 500,000 since. This is Inforrm blog post number 1,170.
Our friends at the UK Human Rights Blog recently celebrated their own one million hits with a seminar. While the idea crossed our minds – very briefly – we decided instead to celebrate our own one million hits with a party for our contributors and subscribers. Details will be emailed to subscribers shortly (hint: to get an invitation, you need to subscribe).
Our Top Twenty Posts of all time have been as follows (in descending order of popularity):
Finally, to repeat a point we have made many times since our launch – one of the main purposes of the Inforrm blog is to provide a forum for serious debate on media and legal issues and we repeat our invitation to anyone who is interested in a guest post (or repost) on any of the topics which we cover. Subject to the usual rules of lawfulness, decency and the avoidance of gratuitous personal attacks we accept contributions on media and legal topics from all points of view. Please let us have any suggestions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
