With 2008 on its way out, everyone is doing a story on their top stories and/or their online numbers. So we thought we would jump in as well.
Jaxpolitics began on November 1st, as a site to capture our observations and musings on state and local politics. In the short time since we began, site views have increased from just over 1,000 views for the month of November to over 4,000 views so far this December (those numbers do not include views by the authors of the site). That’s quite a feat considering we’re not linked to the Times Union, nor are we linked to Sayfie Review (although, in all honesty, we would like to be….lol).
Definitely, the top story on Jaxpolitics since the inception of our site has been the election of Matt Shirk as Public Defender – with all of our Shirk posts added together getting nearly 900 views in the month of December alone. Our November 27th post on considering changing Florida’s system of electing the public defender and state attorney, received over 250 views and is the most viewed post for Jaxpolitics. Our next highest views went to our Mayport Cruise Terminal and Waste Management no bid contract posts.
On behalf of Jaxpolitics, we want to thank you for visiting our site and for providing comments and insight. It’s been a great ride so far, and we hope it continues. All of us here at Jaxpolitics wish you a happy and prosperous New Year.
