It's been an unusually good week for PH exposure. Let's count up the mentions folks here have received:

  • One of Gordon Taylor's posts on Kurdistan and the PKK was quoted by Michael Weiss at Slate.

  • Valtin's post on torture was linked at Bartcop and a couple other places.

  • Lisa Pease's article on George Joannides was republished at Consortium News by editor Robert Parry.

  • My piece on KC Johnson was quoted by The Johnsville News.

  • Dave Praeger's post on sewers was added to an undergraduate syllabus by longtime reader Jonathan Dresner (thanks Jonathan!).

Congratulations to all -- go us!

You should all be proud of yourselves it will only get better.

I hope so! Seems like we've lost about half our traffic because people are getting baffled by the death of / If you type in "", which used to redirect to the front page, it now goes to a dead Blogger page (try it if you don't believe me). This has just decimated our readership (though it's recovering now, slowly) and, frankly, I don't really know what to do to fix that.

My observation is that when you changed formats it took a little time to get reestablished and the other site seems to be easier to work with from my point of view. Other then that you will start picking up steam PH will do fine.

You're right that the other site was easier to work with (but this one is free!). But that's not the issue -- remember I shut down diaries and content on the other site for days and the hit count barely went down at all, but as soon as we switched to the new software and reenabled posting the count was instantly cut by two thirds. I'm pretty sure it's / that's the problem, because there's nothing else that could cause that.

Oh well -- traffic is starting to pick up again anyway, which is great.
