Blue Virginia Hits 1 Million Visits!


Not bad, 1 million visits to our little blog in just 2 years. Add that to the 3 million visits RK got, and that’s 4 million visits to RK/BV blogs in 5 years. Not too shabby for a state-based progressive blog. Also, thanks to everyone who’s been a reader or contributor. We’re always looking for talented new progressives from all over the Commonwealth to join us. If you’re interested, drop me a line at lowell@raisingkaine.com Thanks again.

P.S. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone revealed their actual traffic stats in an “apples-to-apples” way, via Sitemeter or Google Analytics, instead of citing completely unreliable proxies (stuff like incoming links, etc., since they don’t have access to actual traffic stats) like Alexa or Compete or whatever? Many Virginia blogs – NLS, The Green Miles, NOVA CommonSense, Moonhowlings, Bearing Drift, and some I won’t link to – do have public Sitemeters, but many others don’t (or have Sitemeter but don’t reveal it publicly). To each their own, I guess, but I’ve always thought this was an interesting thing to look at, and to let everyone else look at. How about you?

    — getting up with the roosters every morning and making this the blog of record (if there is such a thing) for VA politics.  

    I have to say, as someone much more in the part-time blogging mode, that I greatly appreciate having this progressive, common sense forum endure.  And I think RK, BC and BV have had more impact on this state’s politics than the media, politics and lobbyists will ever admit.
