Texas Liberal

All People Matter

250,000 Page Views & 3,000 Comments—Thank You Blog Reading World

I’m fortunate to be able to report that this blog recently passed 250,000 page views and 3,000 comments.  While that’s chump change for some blogs, in the scheme of things it’s a good showing.

Even better, after a slow start my first year blogging, Texas Liberal has averaged 735 page views a day in 2008. When you consider all the content on the internet, it’s pretty good to get that much traffic to your own small corner of the web. 

I appreciate everyone who has read the blog and thanks to all who have commented.  

Thanks my close friend Bill back home in Cincinnati for his many comments. Thanks to Laz at Last Row for reading the blog and posting comments when readership here was much smaller

It’s been great to make new friends with fellow Texas political bloggers such as Perry at Brains and Eggs, Ted at Jobsanger, Danny at There…Already and Steve at Whosplayin?  

I’ll always have kind regards for friends of the blog such as skippy the bush kangaroo, The Field Negro and A Wide Angle View of India.

Hello as always to Citizen X and Alex Ragsdale who were both on-board from the start.   

Apart from Texas Liberal, I am also one of eight featured political reader-bloggers at the Houston Chronicle and I post regularly at Where’s the Outrage? WTO? is out of North Carolina and is the home of the Dr. Errington Thompson podcast.  

Blogging is–for the most part—fun. You get to have your say. Maybe some readers will see things your way. Maybe not. I feel I have–for the most part— been true to my personality while writing Texas Liberal.  It is good to have these small measures of success. 

On now to my goals of 1,000 hits a day, 500,000 total hits and 5,000 comments.
