In yesterday's retrospective, I promised that "the next installment in this series...will be about the March for Science and other Resistance events [today] for Flashback Friday." Before I tell the story of how Watch reports on March for Science 2018 from four U.S. cities earned its page views, I am sharing reports from this year's events.
I begin with the Sacramento Bee, which invited its viewers and readers to Watch the Sacramento March for Science
The Sacramento March for Science on May 4, 2019 brought out a presidential candidate, a state senator and an anti-vaccination activist in Star Wars attire.That anti-vaccine activist may not realize it, but he's actually advocating an anti-science position to a bunch of scientifically literate people. He picked the wrong crowd. At least he was properly dressed for Star Wars Day.
The person who picked the right crowd was Jay Inslee. He knew they would agree with his message about science and climate change He also knew it would be big enough to be worth talking to.
Green Bay had a smaller event, but WFRV promoted it heavily. The station's first segment on the March for Science featured the Green Bay March for Science's organizer, Gary Lefko.
Lefko did a good job of explaining the event and demonstrating some cool science. He will show up again in another video.
WFRV promoted the event again in its second March for Science the day before the event.
That looked like it was fun.
WFRV covered the actual event in March for Science in Green Bay for residents. Lefko played a prominent part in the video, where he not only speaks, but implodes the 55-gallon drum he brought to the studio in the first video.
That's all for news videos about this year's March for Science on YouTube. Follow over the jump for how the one entry about the Resistance to enter the top 40 earned its page views.
Watch reports on March for Science 2018 from four U.S. cities from April 16, 2018 became the 42nd most read entry during the eighth year of Crazy Eddie's Motie News and the 39th most read actually posted during that blogging year in two stages. First, it earned 345 during April 2018 to rank as the 8th most read entry posted during the month. Infidel 753 shared the link, although most of the page views came from other people's Facebook shares and web searches before that happened. Then, I shared it to the Coffee Party USA Facebook page at 9:00 P.M. on April 30, 2018. It earned 942 page views in the first two hours and 1422 page views in the first 24 hours after being shared. It maxed out at 1859 default and 1919 raw page views on May 16, 2018. It fell out of the monthly top ten with 1765 default page views at 8:00 P.M. EDT on May 17, 2018. It earned an honorable mention for May 2018, coming in 12th overall. It ended the blogging year with 2006 raw page views.
I'm almost done with this series. Next week I plan on looking at the top posts on social media followed by a combination of the back catalog and holidays. Stay tuned!
