Quadrupling Previous Year’s Numbers, Atlas Shrugs in Brooklyn Roared in 2010
Periodically, I like to give you an assessment of the scope of readers we’re reaching.
Well, I’ve reviewed the numbers and have a very positive update to report.
Compared to the nearly six months Atlas had been online in 2009 to the full year of 2010, we witnessed our overall unique viewers more than quadruple over the past 12 months (not including this January).
To double 2009’s numbers would have been tremendous. Four times that number is a genuine achievement.
And that achievement belongs to you, readers.
That’s tremendous progress for a small local Republican-oriented blog in a supposedly “Blue” borough. That’s because we’ve approached the issue that Brooklynites and New Yorkers everywhere are clamoring for: reform. Above all else, we know reforming government and politics is what locals want to see most.
Every day we write here, our writers hope to further that goal, whether it be by promoting reform issues/candidates or exposing corrupted practices in the Republican and Democratic party establishments.
And by all accounts, we are on track to break last January’s record, which saw major traffic following developments in the 44th City Council Special Election.
For all of this, we here at Atlas say thank you for keeping up with the developments in local politics and giving reform the opportunity to take root in Brooklyn. From what we’ve heard, this year is going to be a transformative one for the Brooklyn GOP–for better or for worse.
And we hope to follow it with you every step of the way.
