The Federalist Mid Year Report

And They Keep Coming Back!
Thank you all for coming by again and again.

By Gary:

As we enter the silly season of Presidential politics I thought I would do a mid-year report on THE FEDERALIST blog.

Back in January, 2015 this blog shot past 1,500,000 page views.

Needless to say I was very pleased.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get even 5% of that number.  Since January we have been plugging along at about 30,000 page views a month.

Comrade Obama and his merry band of Marxist thugs have helped drive visitors to this site.

But I must thank the open borders Republican Party for their help.  As the "small government" GOP plunges ever deeper into Big Government Socialism and the 1984 Police Surveillance State I get twice as many targets to attack.

Everyday there is some brand new Leninist-Orwellian horror being foisted on the American people . . . sometimes there are so many news stories in one day that no one but Drudge can even begin to give them the coverage they need.

One wonders in the dead of night if there is anyone left out there who cares.  Is the Republic dead?  Is all we are seeing is the twitching of a still warm corpse?  I hope not, but I fear the worst.

We started with a modest number of views and we keep growing.  We just shot past the magic one million page view mark in February, 2014 and it has not stopped.

  • We began with 834 page views for the month of May, 2011.
  • 5,413 page views in the month of July, 2011.
  • Building to 27,220 page views for February, 2012.
  • An all time high of 71,021 pages was hit with the election month of November, 2012.
  • Jumping to 45,244 in January, 2014.
  • We hit another high at 57,851 page views for the month of May, 2014.

All of us Bloggers dream late at night about being Matt Drudge. Deep down we know that will never happen. But it has been gratifying that readers keep coming back.
Still, Bloggers must be 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 share stories with you from a Constitutional Federalist point of view that is often ignored by the Elite Media.  A point of view that has nearly vanished in a modern Socialistic Big Brother world.
So here we are over 4,447 posted news stories later.  Thank you all for coming by this Blog.  Keep the flame of Liberty burning.  See you down the Internet road.

Who Comes to The Federalist?
I recently subscribed to a "free" Blogger tracking site that counts your visitors.  The counts they provide are staggeringly wrong compared to my internal Google counter.  But the service does come with these nifty pie charts.
Using both Google and the new service it is clear that there are lots of Internet visitors that cannot be tracked by country.

The language tracker is perhaps a better guide to the country of the reader.  This Blog gets only a few readers from English speaking Britain, Canada and Australia etc.  But my internal Google counter does say we get a lot of visitors from Ireland which does not even show up on this company's pie chart.  Since Google is the new Big Brother and knows all and sees all, I will take their numbers as the official count.
So I suspect that 70% plus of the visitors are from the U.S.
