GoDaddy Switch Update

StatCounterYesterday, I made a post explaining why I quit hosting this site on GoDaddy. Today, I was blown away by some further confirmation that I had done the right thing. If you scroll to the bottom of this page, you will see a little hit counter. That links to StatCounter, who I use to see who's visiting my site. Now, it should be noted that I spent all day Tuesday switching to the new host. I have not tried any new methods of promoting my site since then. In fact, I wasn't even on it long enough to check my hits. But check out this screen-shot of my site traffic for the last 7 days. This blew me away and, in my opinion, can't really be explained by much else.




Notice, in the week prior to switching, my biggest day was 119 visitors. The day I switched (meaning the site was down half the day and only partially operational the other half) I had 149. The 2 days following the switch to the new host I had 776 and 843 (at 5pm eastern time) respectively. Is that how many people besides myself were frustrated at how long it took a page to load? My google page rank stayed the same, so that can't explain it. There was no new advertising or new social networking to account for it. And all of this caused the site to jump from around 975,000 on Alexa's rankings to 873,018 at the time of this post less than 2 days later.

Web Hosting HubSo, I guess at this point, I should properly thank Web Hosting Hub. This is a bit premature to be called an official endorsement, but the level of improvement speaks for itself there. I should also include the obligatory "they aren't paying me to say this" because I am not involved in any third party affiliate deals or anything like that. They take my money, not the other way around. But so far, they have been worth every penny. Thanks guys.


Hot off the press.

  • Watered Down Travel Ban

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

  • Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

  • Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
