You may have missed two important factors in the analysis
1) the blog was exclusively in english, which means a rather significant 
part of our readership was not able to read its content
2) the blog is only advertized at the top of all english-speaking projects.

So, if the money was mostly in US dollars, it may have been 
thanksgiving, or the blog.
