Many thanks to my readers, subscribers, commenters and referrers who have made this possible.

This past year was particularly momentous because this site hit the 1,000,000th view mark on November 20, 2016.

Churchmouse Campanologist attracts a broad church of readers from all over the world, including — but hardly limited to — the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain and Australia. It has been difficult to quantify fully for the past two years, as ClustrMaps requires reconfiguration periodically.

My top ten referrers over the past year are as follows:

1/ (new)
2/ Facebook (was 1 last year)
3/ Reader
4/ android-app (new)
5/ Muffled Vociferation (was 4 last year)
6/ Reddit (was 3 last year)
7/ Martin Scriblerus (new)
8/ They Laughed at Noah (new)
9/ Twitter (was 5 last year)
10/ Ichabod (was 6 last year)

I would like to thank my fellow bloggers for their continued support and loyalty, both of which are very much appreciated. I would like to extend special thanks to those who have reblogged my posts.
