The Federalist just shot past the 300,000 view mark
- We are far from being the Drudge Report, but it is good to see that there is some interest out there in true limited government Constitution based news and views.
Wow. 300,000 + pageviews. The growth of THE FEDERALIST blog has been amazing. Even with the long lazy summer and Labor Day weekend our readership has been strong.
The growth in readership has been a wonderful surprise.
We started the blog in May 2011 with an average of 28 "massive" pageviews per day. By December 2011 we had climbed up to an average of 447 views per day.
These days our numbers are bouncing all over like a ping-pong-ball. But we usually run from 1,000 to 1,600 views per day.
Our average daily per page readership has jumped 167% in only six months.
All of us on the net dream late at night of being Matt Drudge. But deep down we know that is not going to happen.
But Bloggers are doing something right. Governments all over the world are scared shitless that we even exist. Scared to the point that Bloggers are arrested and their sites blocked.
In my own way I try to cover stories often ignored by the Elite Media. Stories from a Constitutional Federalist point of view. A point of view that has nearly vanished in a modern Socialistic Big Brother state.
Finding many of these stories is a lot harder than you might think. The mainstream media and even Fox News often have little to no interest in real stories that matter. Instead they take knee-jerk partisan points of view that do not require rational thought. Finding interesting stories is a challenge.
Again, thank you all for coming by this Blog.
