Top 10 Clark County Conservative Posts for 2011

by lewwaters

Something I’ve never done before, looking back on what posts received the most views throughout the year.

Admittedly, not an original thought of mine, but since we see the Columbian and others touting their work throughout the year, why not bloggers too?

I should also note that the Top Ten listed below is just posts from 2011. There were a few from earlier years that still draw interest and receive views. But I felt it appropriate to only focus on posts from 2011 since the view counts of earlier posts include views from earlier years.

Don’t forget to also visit the Columbian’s All Politics is Local blog to see their Top Ten for the Year.

1. Obama Complicity in Crimes of Muammar Gaddafi?

2. Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

3. Ode To The Welfare State, 1949

4. Rep. Jim Jacks Abruptly Resigns! Inappropriate Conduct Alleged!

5. Fine Tuning Ignorance

6. Vancouver to Celebrate Future Soldiers

7. March 30: Remember “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day”

8. Bill Turlay Announces Run for Vancouver City Council, Pos. 6

9. Public Union Thuggery Headed to Washington State?

10. City of Vancouver To Slocum House Theater, “Bah Humbug”

I should also note that the above Top Ten is just posts from 2011. There were a few from earlier years that still draw interest and receive views. But I felt it appropriate to only focus on posts from 2011 since the view counts of earlier posts include views from earlier years.

Number 10 is also one of the latest posts, having been posted just prior to Christmas.

Looking over the list, I was somewhat surprised to see my post on the treatment of Vancouver businessman David Madore drew more views than on Jim Jacks abruptly walking out on constituents in mid-session earlier in the year.

As an unpaid blogger, I wish to thank all who visit my blog and increase my hits. It doesn’t earn me any money, but it does tell me that people appreciate views different than those published in the Columbian.

So far, I expect to finish the year with just under 120,000 views this year.

Stay tuned as in the next couple days I will be posting what was the most mis-reported story from the Columbian.

  1. Oh lew.. I’m watching these youtube advertising videos just above this… They’re so bad and funny at the same time! Why aren’t the C’s advertising lIke THIS?

    Now back to the topic. I liked the number one. Though I do hope in 2012, Professor Deans wonderful work gets some exceptional numbers as well.

    Happy New Years to all!

  2. Jeremy, I have nothing to do with any of the ads that appear. In fact, I don’t even see them.

    They come from WordPress since I use a free blog site for now.

    As long as Professor Deans sends them to me, I’ll keep posting them 😉 I too would like to see them getting more views throughout the year.

  3. Lew – I understand that wordpress’s parent company or structure has to pay for the free network infrastructure and capacity in some form or another. Nothing is every free. I just loved that commercial. Its very RARE to get me chuckling…

    And thank you for the clarification for others, that you do not control the advertisers or its infrastructure, much like the C’s Google Ads and 10 level layers of sadistic statics and web analytics. I say what they have over there is really excessive.

    Now back to the original thread. Did any of the original gavel down video threads ever get into the top ten?
