I completely missed the One Year Anniversary of Sparky’s Policy Pub, which was last Tuesday (business is good, and nobody’s complaining). In the past year I contributed 70 posts that generated roughly 3,600 views. Whether that’s above, below or right about average I have no idea. But I have had a lot of fun writing each and every post, which was my goal to begin.
And it has been fascinating to follow the blog stat’s. My number one post continues to be Death Panels Just Won’t Die, which is hit upon most often by folks searching for information on whether knee replacements will be rationed under the Affordable Care Act. It’s for that very reason that post is also my favorite, as I tried very hard in it to combat the misinformation that exists about the Act and how that misinformation has been used to scare our most vulnerable members of society.
So to anyone and everyone who has taken the time to stop by the Pub and read my posts, I want to sincerely thank you for your time and interest. While I find great enjoyment in just having a reason to write, the recognition that comes from knowing someone else finds what I write worth their time to read is very special and very meaningful to me.
I have learned a lot on how to create content that is valuable, interesting and entertaining. I still have a lot to learn, and I am anxious to see where the year ahead will take me – and the Policy Pub.
See you in the Pub!!
