Two years ago I published a celebratory post after Another Century hit two thousand views for the year. For my little blog it was a very exciting moment! And now, we’ve hit another milestone- four thousand views so far in 2020. So twice as many people are visiting as two years ago, and that’s in 8 months compared to 11 in 2018. That’s pretty cool! I still think this is a little blog so this is another gratifying accomplishment.
It’s good to know there are people out there who are actually interested in what I’ve written. I started this blog when I was just out of school, where the only people who read what you’ve written are your teachers, and they’re paid for that so it doesn’t really count does it?
Just like two years ago, my brief history of Farview State Hospital has the most views on the year again. But this time, my second (more well-researched and academic) Farview article is in second place. Do we want more information on Pennsylvania’s mental institutions? I can definitely do more of those. Third place this year goes to my “Ask What You Can Do For Your Country” JFK post from early 2017. Not sure why this old post is suddenly so popular, I wonder why. And in fourth comes the post on Disney’s 1943 Chicken Little cartoon, one of my earliest posts and still one of the favorites.
If you’re just discovering Another Century, check out my back catalog of articles. I think you’ll like what you find.
And now to the good part. To commemorate 4000 views, here are my favorite historic photos I found searching online digital archives’ collections that have “4000” or “four thousand” in the title.
Thanks to everyone who’s taken the time to read anything on this blog, I appreciate each and every one of you.
