Top 20 Pages on Balagan

I started this blog on 21 Feb 2001 and then Migrated Balagan to WordPress on 15 Sep 2013. So, roughly 4.5 years ago. One of the great things about WordPress, compared to the hand crafted HTML site I had before, is that I get statistics on page views. Apparently I’ve had 1,176,779 views since I migrated and 1,125 comments. My biggest day (23 Feb 2018) brought 2,420 views – this was because Reddit got hold of my Academy of Street Fighting: Tactics during the Battle of Stalingrad post. Today is a typical day with 750 views.

The top 20 posts since I migrated are listed below, along with their all time page views. There are some surprises in there, at least for me; what is, for example, this obsession with the Timeline of Thirty Years War?

  1. Please keep up all the great work and effort. It is very much appreciated.
    Kind regards,

  2. Got here by way of reddit mention of the Pink Map. Google gave Wiki first and your site second. Looked at your map, and noted the list on the right. Immediately selected Thirty Years War. Go figure. At first look this is likely a site I will be visiting often.
