Thank you. We have reached our goal of raising $40,000 in the month of December. When we were challenged by a generous donor to ask our readers to match their $20,000 donation we were doubtful we could do it. The most we had raised in the past was $10,000 and that was just a few months ago. We are humbled and deeply appreciative of this show of support, and promise to keep the site going strong into 2011.
2010 has been an incredible year for us and the site. As the year ends we have had over 5.6 million pageviews and over 3.2 million unique visitors. We’ve published 3,500 posts and generated an amazing amount of comments – over 120,000!
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the site as a reader, commenter, writer, or booster. All of your support has made the site what it is today.
Also, ever been curious who the most prolific of the Mondo commenters are? For the first time we’ve tallied the yearly contributions of our most frequent commenters. The top ten for 2010 for 2010 is after the jump. Enjoy!
