As we are beginning 2017, we want to take a quick look back at our blog in 2016.
We want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read our blog. Whether it’s been through our blog home page (http://calmcblog.wordbress.com), our Facebook or LinkedIn pages, or from our web site (http://calmc.org), we appreciate you taking your time to read our work,
Our readership increased in 2016, with 32.7% more readers hitting 25.5% more blog pages. When we began writing this blog we wondered whether anyone would want to read it, so we are very grateful for the support you show.
It is not surprising most of our readers are from the United States, but in 2016 the blog was read in over 50 countries. I hope our writings remain relevant to everyone in 2017.
