Popular articles from my blog

Wordpress statsI started blogging just over 2 years ago and try to add one article a week. I write about what I feel passionate about. Most of my posts are categorised as “Justice”, “Compassion” and “Poverty”. Inevitably I touch on politics and am not afraid of being controversial. My articles are influenced by my faith as a Christian but I do not intend to be exclusive and fully appreciate that some of my readers will have other faiths or have no particular faith.

WordPress tells me that I have had 20,000 ‘hits’ in the last two years, about 200 every week. Of course I cannot tell who my readers are, and whether they have actually read every word. 60% of my readers are from the UK or USA but I have had hits from 163 different countries of the world.

Each time I publish an article about 300 people get an email with a snippet of the article and a link to the full article. 1350 people potentially see a reference on social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc). But 50% of accesses are from search engines (mostly google).

I was the founder of Karuna Action (formerly Kingscare) and was the director for 24 years. I have now handed control over to younger people but continue as an advisor and trustee. My passion is to see extreme poverty eliminated and to see justice for the powerless.
