Eclectablog has its biggest month. Ever.


I just wanted to take a minute to thank all my readers. Today at around noon, this blog had its biggest month ever. And it’s only the 18th!

The previous highest month was 13 months ago when I did a piece on Rachel Maddow that went totally viral. You’ll notice that traffic spiked that month then petered out over the next two.

This recent peak is different. I’ve been building traffic over the past few months. It started last December when my very good friend Blackwaterdog added me to her blogroll.

Since then, as a proud member of our informal pragmatic progressives blogging family, things have been going very well. On average, people who stop by go to two pages which is actually quite good because for every person that visits only their landing page, someone else is hitting three or more pages and exploring.

I’ve even had a few donations via my PayPal link which is gratifying and it lets me know that folks value what they find here when some of them are willing to throw a little ching my way.

At any rate, thanks so much to all of you. It’s fun, isn’t it?

I’m just sayin’…
