Why the big decline? Two national/international stories back in Oct/Nov drew a huge number of new (one-time) visitors:
- Bonnie Obremski’s RepJ story titled Northfield video game designer immune to economic woes which was visited and pinged often by gaming sites around the world. That was the #1 blog post for November.
- My blog post titled Stealing lawn signs: an act of civil disobedience or amazing stupidity? The St. Olaf visiting prof made headlines around the world.
So we actually had a very good month, traffic-wise.
In December, the top stories were:
- Gleason offering land for liquor store to city for $1 (RepJ)
- Is the Co-op Republican/Conservative-friendly?
