In only its second month of existence, Thinking Right’s reach has expanded rapidly garnering almost 70,000 unique daily hits for the month of October (68,141) for a total of slightly over 90,000 since our inception 60 days ago (90,234). I have no point of comparison, but that seems pretty good to me and I really want to thank you for your support. At some point these self-congratulatory posts will probably come back to haunt me when things here eventually level off, but it sure is fun now.
Since this is a new enterprise we are still experimenting with everything. One of the things that we have done is add the occasional piece of satire just for fun. While these have generated a large amount of traffic, I am curious as to how you, the loyal reader, feels about having a little satire mixed in. In the blogosphere there seem to either the “serious” political sites or the purely satire sites (the Onion) and nothing in between. I would love to hear from you as to what you think..
