It is one year today that we started this blog. The mandatory basic stats for such a post:
- 159 posts
- Just under 90K page views
- 985 comments
I was really hoping for 100K views, but disappointment is my penance posting almost nothing for two months of that. Besides, I will just assume that the difference was covered by those reading on feeds or reblogs, or those reading more than one post when visiting the homepage. :-)
I do notice that some of the oldest posts, some of which are quite significant, accumulated less than 200 views. I will try to do some archive revisits.
More important than the basic stats is that I think we have put the fear of Truth into quite a few people by calling them out on their lies. Several of them got very quiet. This blog is just one little corner of that effort, of course, but the combination of effective archiving and search (unlike chat networks), credibility, and being willing to directly confront the lies (unlike most other credible blogs) give it a unique niche. And, yes, I have kind drifted away from focusing on the Lies, and I should probably make an effort to start back on them. The archive project will help with that.
And who knows, maybe there will be fewer lies during the next year.
