In my vanity, I was curious. I had to find out. Forgive my vanity.

Readership History

I own this website, Appalachian Irishman, until the socialists try to take it away from me. I will still have the God-given right to speak freely. The socialists may attempt to end that freedom. If so, I will go down, after having fired every written and verbal round. (That's my sarcastic, political humor, y'all.)

Analytics show me all-time viewer statistics. The internal link is Blogger Stats All Time, which only I can see.

The first article published is “HOW TO PRONOUNCE "APPALACHIAN" (published 3/6/2006; inaugural article).”

Analytics show annual view totals from June 2010 through January 2021. I see this month as well. Analytics do not go back to the initial article. The following list shows annual view totals by year. Only the last seven months are shown in 2010.

06/2010 – 12/2010: 3,207 total
2011: 4,491 total
2012: 3,482 total
2013: 4,273 total
2014: 3,673 total
2015: 4,508 total
2016: 5,369 total
2017: 3,137 total
2018: 4,008 total
2019: 4,481 total
2020: 37,699 total

Views increased from July 2020 through December 2020. Interestingly, on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, total views were 1,036. That was the most in one day, from 9/1/2020 through 2/27/2021.


Thanks, y'all, for stopping by for coffee more often! This online platform does not generate income. It is a free speech platform, as my public journal and commentary.

What do I know? First, “If you write, they will read!” The number of articles published, by year, in reverse chronological order, is:

2020 (55)
2019 (37)
2017 (1)
2016 (3)
2014 (2)
2013 (3)
2012 (1)
2011 (6)
2010 (10)
2009 (17)
2008 (3)
2006 (28)

I didn't publish articles in 2007, 2015, or 2018. I started writing and publishing more articles in 2019 and 2020. “If you write, they will read.” That's my new maxim.

Second, what happened in July 2020? Well, I have written about it. What happened on January 6, 2021? I have also written about that. The official start of the USSA (Ununited Socialist States of America) was on that date.

Finally, it seems that viewers enjoy the articles on “poly-tics” the most. I may, if I can tolerate it, write more on the topic, but don't cross your fingers in hope! Writing those types of articles drains me. I have enough willpower to write them. We will see.
