Distribution of blog post views

The figure below shows the distribution of views that blog posts have received via their unique URL. Forty-three blog posts have been viewed more than 1,000 times, with an additional nine viewed more than 2,000 times, one more than 4,000 times and one viewed more than 38,000 times. These figures are underestimates, as many blog posts are viewed via the home page rather than their unique URL. To end March 2020, 16% of views were via the home page.
