Hi Tony! Yes, you can see how many read a post. In the lower left corner of the article you can see "Views" which represents how many times the article was pulled up for viewing (including 'me' if I edit it for any reason).
Do you tweet out or post your articles to Facebook or Google+ ?
We've definitely seen readership on all political websites dropping in 2013/2014 and many are even closing their doors at this point. Of course midterms are never as busy as a Presidential election years but I (personally) believe more people are viewing on smartphone and tablet - and want their news upfront and in their face via an "app" while they take the train to work or sit in front of their televisions at night - which we do not have, mostly b/c they're extremely expensive to build.
One approach would be to post your article URL on other website's comments section which are discussing the same topic as your post. This form of placing your own 'back links' is common everywhere on the internet and encourages their reader to come view your post.
I would definitely recommend you 'share' your posts with your 912CQ member 'friends' using the SHARE button at the bottom of the post and tweet it out (as well as placing on Facebook and/or Google+). Constantly ask for comments in your posts and always encourage your readers to share it with their coworkers, family and friends.
That's the best way to GET IT OUT THERE buddy. Good luck!
Lets talk about shortages...No shortage of hot air and empty promises from wash dc as well as no shortage of govt employees.....now thirty police officers in any small town doin the work of four or five twenty years past... Where are the science teachers? India and Germany! Where are the science students???certainly not in the US as our students are too busy on the phone or playing video games...We can talk all we want about an upcoming energy boom in the US; but the best energy is human energy...that seems to be lacking....govt employee boom does not equal entrepreneurial energy boom...All the govt needs to do is just get the hell out of the way of progress.. Many bloggers talk about changing the direction this country is now headed....Only thing to do that IMO is the market place---that being the global marketplace....money is becoming more scarce...Interest rates will soon rise....the fed cannot keep the lid on interest rates forever...Us fixed income people will get a small bonus for a few months, but then runaway inflation will possibly kick in and our monies become worthless....that is the way of socialistic governments.. thats history. and if the US govt thinks they are above history,,,,which they seem to think;, then there will soon be a big day of reconing. Just watch the action when obummer team tries gun control and rfid implants next year....zombies will appear then soon disappear....For Teresa: I say: Obummer is only a passing fad in the grand scheme of things...soon to self-destruct... It wont be pretty and the dollar will suffer downgrade....mabye so will all the other worlds currencies so it then comes out even...I used to go to Europe two or three times a year....cannot afford that now...We must keep positive and forgive the christian coalition that failed us...I do hope and believe the 45+ white males which were mitt's largest support group are not a bunch of wimps and will continue to work for real change and we do not like the direction this country is heading....Socialism sux while free enterprise gives freedom and other great benefits to all of society.
Lanyon, Thank you, I follow DR. Manning he is a something else. Didn't the trials start? I really wanted to be there but I work overnights 11pm to 5am and run a rescue for macaws, dogs and cats and I alone care for them. I do not have anyone with the expertise to really care for the Macaws the way I would expect. I feel as though I could do so much more if I had not decided to do my rescue. It is what I believe God intended as I had asked him to show me the way, what was my purpose and for over 25 years it seems this was it. However, I find I can not think or function on any real level anymore its like I have become sick in the head over my beloved country in such trouble. I have become awake and fully empowered with the will to make a difference, I would sacrifice my life for this country as our men and women in the military are doing. Anyway, again I thank you very much for giving hope to all this. Teresa
I think we all agree that to really change the direction of our country, limit spending and limit government, we need to unite the majority vote. We have set up an organization to do that very thing. All patriots should join with us to achieve that end. We do not suggest that you quit other groups or stop other actions ...just that you enlist your vote with ours.
We have a new group site but it is private for the time being. To join you must be invited. You may request an invitation as follows: go to the site www.americanvote.info You will enter on the homepage. Look to the top and select the "contact us" tab and send an email. In the subject line please put "INVITE" so that your mail is not deleted as spam. Your invitation must be sent to you from the new site and will come to you as quickly as we can respond. The site you are going to tells who we are and outlines what we are doing. If you have the time you might wish to read it over. Once you are a member of the new site you may invite your friends from the site. Help us take our country back!
