It's Flashback Friday! As I promised in yesterday's entry, here's another retrospective. The fourth most read entry of the fifth year of the blog as well as the fourth most popular in the entire history of the blog is Clinton wins the news media while Sanders wins the Internet posted October 15, 2015. It ended the year with 2163 page views, 2239 according to the raw counter. It's a companion piece to Trump thinks Sanders is the right enemy, making this entry a follow-up to Trump vs. Sanders, the top post of the fifth year of Crazy Eddie's Motie News. As for how it got its page views, I'll be a good environmentalist and recycle what I wrote in Record page views, comments, and 100th follower: Monthly meta for October 2015.
The most liked entry of October with 12 pluses on Google Plus was "Clinton wins the news media while Sanders wins the Internet." Being shared at the Bernie Sanders communities of G+ did most of that. It was also the second most read entry posted during the month as well as overall with 2163 page views, 2172 according to the raw counter. This post earned 2157 page views the first week, all but 40 from being shared at the Coffee Party Facebook page. The first hour of being shared, it brought 427 page views to the blog, part of 1714 that day. It's currently the third most viewed entry in the history of the blog.I also shared the link at Greer's blog in February, four months later. This entry has managed to stay current and will continue to do so until the Democratic convention.
Two more entries on this topic fell just short of the top twenty, Drinks for the Democratic debates: Hillary Clinton and Drinks for the Democratic debates: Bernie Sanders. These are also still current, as the two candidates debated just last night. I tweeted both links, as I have for every Democratic debate.
Stay tuned for the rest of the posts I have planned.
As for the rest of the week, Pearl turned over another 1000 miles yesterday, so a post about that is still on tap for Saturday. Next week, I should have part 2 of 2016 Saturn Awards for Movies, Tax Day on Monday, Drum Corps for the New York Primary on Tuesday, marijuana legalization news for 4/20 on Wednesday, another retrospective for Throwback Thursday, and Earth Day news on Friday. Looks like another busy week, which pleases me.Previous entries in this series.
