Christian Medical Comment (CMC) was launched in December 2009 but I started blogging regularly in September 2010.
Overall there have been 447 individual posts and just over 300,000 page-views – at an average of about 670 views per post.
CMC has been ranked in the 20 top UK blogs in the Religion and Belief category in the e-buzzing rankings for the last twelve months, peaked at 3rd in March and currently stands at 7th. It ranks 241st overall amongst ebuzzing’s over 210,000 registered blogs.
CMC is a specialist blog majoring on issues at the interface of Christianity and Medicine with specific focus on the beginning and end of life. But my broader aim is to bring issues to the attention of Christians that I believe they should be informed and concerned about.
I write mainly for a Christian readership but many of my readers hold strongly opposing views and frequently take issue with my views.
60% of readers come from the UK, 17% from the US and 7% from Canada, Australia, Germany, Russia and Ireland combined with the remaining 16% coming from other countries around the world.
I’m particularly grateful to those other blogs which republish some of my posts giving them wider distribution (especially Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, Mercatornet, Anglican Mainstream, Care Not Killing, LifeSite News, National Right to Life News and the Official CMF blog) and also to the Christian Institute, Westminster2010 and Christian Concern which frequently link to or quote from them.
