Updated: Mar 31, 2019

Recently I received year-end statistics for my website. While in many ways I still feel like a blogging beginner, it seems that some significant impact is being made for Jesus via this online ministry.

Some of the highlights:

  • In 2014, people viewed my website (markalanwilliams.net) in 119 countries.

  • These countries were as diverse as Bulgaria, Egypt, Mozambique, Saudi Arabia, Chile, France, Indonesia, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Finland, Algeria, Cambodia, and so on.

  • Over 10,000 different people read articles during the year.

  • My blog was viewed over 18,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The report also listed the top 10 articles, which I am sharing below.


First, a few observations about the most popular articles:

  • It seems that the most popular tend to be the more controversial—they offer a different viewpoint. This makes me think that people want to have their minds stretched, their thinking challenged and their questions answered.

  • While I don’t get a lot of criticism, here are the articles that brought some criticism:#1 by a few people who disregard what the Bible says on homosexuality and maybe didn’t even bother to read the passages I cited.

  • #4 by a few people who think that despite what Scripture says, there’s a way for people to be saved without receiving Jesus Christ.

  • #7 by a guy who thought that my title was disingenuous because overall I actually love being a Christian.

  • #9 by a guy who thought that if you are a Christian, there’s no way you can be depressed

  • Some articles got more exposure since they were posted earlier in the year. Nonetheless, I think this would not tip the “voting with clicks” a lot.Similarly, some articles were posted in 2013, but still made it onto the list.

So here are the top 10 most read articles of 2014. If you haven’t had a chance to read them yet, or would like a review, just click on the title and it will take you to the article.
