  • I just noticed that BiblePlaces.com was the top referring site to Gordon Govier's TB&TS blog, & I received the same WordPress stats last night too (my LMLK WordPress mirror). I'm sure there were plenty of other sites that received major 2010 traffic thanks to the way-cool, & highly relevant content on this one. Thanks a million!
