I'm very happy with the steady growth of the website. As of today, there have been over 20,000 clicks and people from over 55 different countries have accessed the site. The website has a very high search engine ranking and is in the top 25 under 'volunteerism' for certain search engines. I think that this is amazing considering how many other volunteerism websites and non-medical volunteer activities exist.
You may have noticed a bar at the bottom of the home page. If you are a member of a social network such as Facebook and Myspace, you can actually sign in with the bar and chat with your Facebook and Myspace friends while you are on this website. If you have AIM, you can even video chat. The Twitter button lets you see any Twitter posts that contain the words 'medical volunteerism' and the Facebook button allows you to become a fan on Facebook (there is a group and a fan page on Facebook).
As always, if you have any questions about the website feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, here is a map of visitors. The darker countries are the ones which have accessed the site in larger numbers. I think that this map makes the world look like a small place.
Edit on March 12, 2010: And speaking of steady growth, two days have gone by and the number of countries that has accessed the website has gone above 60. Here is a new map (among the changes are visits from China and an increase in vistors from Germany):
