For those of you following along at home, here are the all-time stats for posts on The Daily Beat between May 2010 and January 2016.
Obviously, seeing Kristen Stewart's tits continues to enthrall search engine users, as does accessing the full text of On the Road. It surprises me that pronouncing "Cannes" is so popular. Why the official OTR movie website got so many hits is beyond me. I'm happy about the "fellaheen" post being popular, as well as my spontaneous prose ramble ("Dimetapp dreams"). I guess I can understand why the release date of the OTR film was popular. It's a testament to Gerry Nicosia's staying power in the Kerouac world that my interview with him about the OTR film ranks 8th in all-time hits. U.S. Citizens traveling to Cuba? That was prescient for 2009 given what's happened since. Finally, my next tattoo is apparently of interest to a number of people.
If you want to read any of these posts, simply find them by their date over there on the right hand side of the screen. While you're at it, check out some of the other 1,195 posts I've published since the inception of this blog in 2008. The year 2012 was the winner in terms of number of posts (320), and 2014 was pathetic (33). I did the latter on purpose to honor that beer from Latrobe in my home state...not.
For context, my posts rarely get less than 40 pageviews but frequently get into the 3-digit range. Four digits is rare.
And so it goes....
