Posts Touch Nerves, Spur Record Traffic

The new year started off with a bang as generated record traffic, ending with almost 750,000 page views in January.  Those high numbers stem, in part, from the fact that several of my posts appear to have touched a few nerves.

For instance, I asked a simple question that resulted in Missouri Republican Party officials getting their collective “rear” in gear to inform the public about this year’s presidential election process.

I shared several posts about Missouri news topics, including pieces about two Missouri Republicans, Bill Randles and Dave Spence, vying for the opportunity to face off with incumbent Jay Nixon in the 2012 race for governor of the Show-Me State.  I also shared an interesting piece about Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder’s Facebook page being hacked.

Perhaps most controversial was a post I published after Missouri health agency officials refused to answer questions about a new cancer report they had completed recently.  It caught attention from a lot of people, including talk radio phenom Dana Loesch.

Adding to my efforts during the month were several well-researched and thought-provoking pieces by guest blogger Paul R. Hollrah.

And, of course, I used as a platform for publishing several posts about my book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice, for which I have book-signing events set Feb. 18 and May 19.

I hope you’ll keep reading and sharing.  Thanks in advance!

P.S.  Make sure you order a copy of my book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military JusticeYou’ll be glad you did!
