Progress the Past Week Here
Today, as I write, our views are up to 17,000 — quite a jump in one week! (over 12k.) The biggest boost came from Reddit. The most popular article, with over 15,000 views, was the one on a whistleblower in the World Bank.
Our article on farm subsidies going to Verizon was picked up by the American Bankers Association (of all people!) and passed on to their 6000 banking followers, some of whom cited our article to their followers. That and others getting retweeted were the ones on the Medieval workweek (eight times), the one on farm subsidies (thrice), the one on persuasive arguing, and the one on an economists’ spring. In total, those retweeting sent our articles to over 75,000 of their followers. Our own Tweet followers about doubled to now over 50; one being The Hill (capitol hill) with over 8000 followers.
Our Facebook Likers added 30, now up to 100. Our article on a Portland columnist endorsing geonomic taxation got shared on Facebook a couple times.
The article in second place all-time is the one on bitcoin; in third is our home page and archives, and within archives is the life of Gandhi.
We got a dozen comments. The topic to get multi replies was the article on the Portland columnist.
Our Alexa rank at statscrop jumped from 606k to 373k! If we can keep that up …
Communication is what’s going to save this species of ours. If you haven’t already, here are the 10 easy ways to advance the cause:
1) spread any articles you find fascinating,
2) befriend us on Facebook,
3) follow us on Twitter,
4) subscribe to updates,
5) leave a comment either in the Forum, to the editor, or after an article,
6) send us an article link or photo,
7) propose blogging there,
8) register for a course,
9) if so moved don’t hesitate to punch the PayPal button, even
10) take out an ad.
Now, hopefully all your friends and family, neighbors and coworkers will visit us, too, and enjoy raising public awareness of a better way for all. One by one, we’ll make a movement for economic justice that wins a fair share of Earth’s worth for everyone, via a sane public revenue policy.
Yours for geo-justice,
