This is post #100 for this blog. A good time to take stock.
On average, we receive over 300 visitors each day, over 50,000 visitors to date in the short history of this blog.
We have received over 1,200 comments on our posts, an average of 12 comments per post, a stunning rate for a blog. Only one of our last ten posts has less than 20 comments.
The vast majority of blogs in the world would kill for this kind of foot and comment traffic.
Our prior blog, La Russophobe, had well over 3,000,000 visits and received well over 50,000 comments in its five years of existence, with over 5,000 posts published. It was the most trafficked political blog in the history of Russia blogging. LR was closed in moratorium when Putin returned to power, as we had always correctly predicted he would do.
We have watched so many of our competitors fall by the wayside as blogs give way to social media like Twitter and Facebook, from Accidental Russophile to Siberian Light to Julia Ioffe to Paul Goble. But we are still going strong.
Our main focus now, however, is Twitter, you can follow us on Twitter here. Of course, we also continue to publish significant Russia reporting on much larger Internet forums, such as Pajamas Media and American Thinker.
