Blogging While Banned
We assumed that we'd lose a few hundred visitors right after we were banned by the Department. It only made sense that our hits would plummet when no one was checking the blog during business hours. In the below chart, you can see the dip right around Superbowl Sunday (04 Feb) and the slight drop off for the three days following as the Department filters took their toll.
But Thursday (08 Feb), with the Sergeant Test results arriving in the mail, we topped 3,000 for the day, our weekend numbers have recovered nicely and on Monday (a holiday) we approached 4,000 hits on the day. If you hop over to the BlogShares website, our blog is now valued at $22,599.98 as of February 11th.
Now, we aren't greedy - we'd entertain offers of a flat $20,000 from any interested parties. And if a certain individual wanted to make a "Seiser Special" offer, we'd go as low as $18,000 just because we respect the fact that he runs everything. But until that day arrives, we'd just like to extend our thanks to our loyal readers who are actively seeking us out despite the efforts of the Department. Keep on spreading the word - we're still here.
