PodBible (NZ Bible podcast) makes the US news ::

The NZ Bible podcast, PodBible, which recorded hundreds of ordinary Kiwis from primary school to retirement home age and with all sorts of accents and voices has passed it's first six months and made (a very small splash in) a US news service: Biblecast delivering 1000 Bible chapters a day to listeners.

Incidentally, over the first six months usage has grown fairly steadily and visitors have increased by 50%. Data downloaded increased by a whopping 600%, though heavy downloads after Easter Camp may account for some of that. Before Easter at the 5 month mark it was up 350%.

In April (the last full month PodBible.com had on average 364 visitors per day. At the peak at the end of the month they were downloading over a gigabyte of data each day (that's over 1,000 chapters). "Bible Podcast" was the commonest search term on Google to find the site.

24 countries scored more than 10 hits in the month, NZ was second after the USA, visitors also came from: Japan, Netherlands, Australia, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Canada, Guatemala, China, Italy, Singapore, Brazil, Israel, Poland, Norway, Spain, Finland, Turkey, Denmark, Hungary, Malaysia, Portugal. But, of course lots of people subscribe through Bloglines or another Blog or Podcast reader, and will therefore "count" as coming from the USA!

The project will also feature on Shine TV on Monday with an interview with Peter Olds (Balmoral Baptist's pastor).
