It’s Over 9000!


This little blog of mine, which hardly ever gets any new content (for my twelve followers, sorry about that), has seen a bit of an uptick over the last week.

Normally I see a slight spike in visits to this page at the beginning of each year, when Cub Scout leaders and parents are searching for information on career arrows for their Arrow of Light Scouts who will soon be crossing over to Boy Scouts.  That’s pretty expected.  I usually see a couple hundred hits a month in those instances, and it’s from inside the Scouting community for the most part.  Prior to this month the most page views I’d seen for this blog was about 1,200 in one month.

But it appears that the post I published back in March 2015 (and have updated a few times since then to keep it up to date), about Presidential visits to the BSA National Jamboree, has absolutely spiked in the last week.  In fact, as of the writing of this post, this month’s views are over 9,000.

So it’s really cool to me that people have gotten some value out of content I spent a not insignificant amount of time creating.  Or at least had the opportunity to get some value.  Or possibly just clicked on a link from some other site and immediately regretted it.  But hey, it’s something!

And maybe it’ll help to put to bed those claims about every President but one attending the Jamboree.  Probably not, but one can hope right?

Plus I got to use a Dragon Ball Z meme!

I’d been thinking about doing some more pages similar to this about confirming or debunking other Scouting myths.  Maybe I’ll re-visit that in the near future.

Hopefully I won’t go two years without posting something again.

We now move away from the post about this hits on this site from another post (meta posting?), and return you to Scouting content…someday.
