State of the Blog at the Beginning of 2022

Posted on Updated on

Here is the annual blog post detailing the state of the blog as of the beginning of 2022.

Financial Report

Blog Profit = $135 loss!

As you probably realize, I pay for this and make no money from it, which is undoubtedly what has allowed me to keep doing this.

Blog Traffic

As of 12/30/21, we have just over 1,051,000 page views. Here is the blog traffic as measured by page views since I started it in 2015. See a pattern? In 2021, we topped out at over 311,000 views.

I get most referred traffic from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and the forum, in that order. The distant 5th is a link to my bog from Reddit, and I haven’t really figured out where the blog is mentioned or linked to on that platform.

    Audio Digest Dear Dr.Schafer, I am a 67 yo Internist and geriatrician  recuperating from head trauma.Although my ABIM certifications are still enforced,I must retake  the Internal Medicine and Geriatric board exams both within two years.I remember you talking about free Audio Digest.Listening to these would most certainly help my scores.Hopefully I will resume practicing in the ensuing months but until I do,money is in shorter supply.Could you please tell me how to obtain free or very inexpensive Audio Digest?I believe it would help me immensely.Thank you for what you advise. Have a  happy,healthy New Year. Sincerely.Larry Dobk
