Wow! The year just flew by! We’ve added lots of new friends and visitors.
I don’t know that we’ve introduced all of our administrators lately, so I’ll do that here:
There’s me, Stellap:
Our lovely dahling girl, WaltzingMtilda:
Our quick-witted (and funny) Texan, WeeWeed:
It’s no surprise that many of our new visitors were drawn here by the conversation surrounding the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman controversy, and some have joined in our general conversations, while others stick pretty much exclusively to the TM/GZ threads. Some of you are not the conservatives or libertarian guests that we were used to, but I think that different points of view have added in a positive way (usually) to discussions on a variety of topics. The increase in traffic has correspondingly increased our moderation/administrative load, and spam increased proportionally, but we’re not complaining – much.
In January, 2012, we had total views of 109,271. Last month (January, 2013), views totaled 602,073. Today we will break the mark of an all-time 7,000,000 page views! In contrast, at the end of January, 2012, we stood at total page views of 1,158,925.
Our most popular post over the last year concerned the Benghazi massacre, Boldly Into The Breach, at 120,856.
In second place was Sandy Hook Shooting – Discrepancies (not conspiracies….. yet), at 83,462.
Trayvon Martin doesn’t make the list until #3, Update #26 Part 2 – Trayvon Martin Shooting – A year of drug use culminates in predictable violence…, viewed 55,007 times …
followed by Whitney Houston, DEAD – Whitney Houston 1963 – 2012 (Video) with 52,223.
In fifth place is Update #10 (Part 2) – The Trayvon Martin Shooting “DeeDee” Reveals The False “Truths”…, at 39,453. Pastor Alois Bell is right behind this one – over 38,000 so far.
We’ve added lots of NEW friends – I hesitate to mention names, because there are so many new people who have joined our daily discussions. I will mention a few I’ve gotten to know over on the Open Thread, in no particular order:
Please don’t feel slighted because you weren’t in this list. There are some I would have included, but you don’t have an avatar yet.
Many of you have been around for most of the past year, so get a move on! Here are the instructions for creating a Gravatar, compliments of Mtilda:
Please join with us in singing Happy Birthday, and we will blow out the candles and pass out the cake and ice cream. Fireworks would be fun too, but I don’t know if the budget will stretch that far.
I like this cake – I hope it tastes good!
Okay, we all chipped in and got the fireworks too!
And as always -
