I average about 1200 hits a day and this past May I had what I consider my best month ever. I only posted 17 times and the blog received over 42,000 hits which isn’t bad for what is primarily a niche blog but at the same time I think it should be doing a lot better.
Here are the stats for the July posts:
Notice anything there? When I post about Clay County issues, a school system about the third of the size of Duval and arguably with less severe problems the unique views are off the chart. A blog about Duval County usually gets between 400-1500 unique views while the stuff I post about Clay County is often in the 3000-6000 range.
Why does Clay County seem to care so much more about the workings of its school system?
I think even people who often disagree with me would agree that the truth is we have problems which are going to take the community coming together to solve. Right now it’s just a cadre of rich mostly white men running the show.
Duval you have to step up and one great place to do so is the upcoming elections in districts 5 and 7, it looks like we have solid candidates in both but there are also at least two candidates Greg Tison in 7 and Warren Jones in 5 that have to be stayed away from at all costs.
Unless we start to take an interest in our school system we will continue to struggle.
