Annoying Sitemeter Pop-up (Update)(Problem solved?)

Sitemeter is the free traffic meter I’ve been using since day one of the blog to keep track of visits and page views.  It’s public, and linked at the bottom of the page in the footer.

The reason I like Sitemeter is it’s free.  And it’s used by TaxProf for his law...

Is Buzzfeed the new home for viral conservative listicles?

Buzzfeed seems to engender pretty strong feelings all around.  Mostly the criticism was from the right during the election, but I’m seeing grumbling from the left lately as well.

I cautioned last February not to underestimate BuzzFeed Politics, which is an emerging force in news and uses cats to maximum effect.  Despite my tongue-in-cheek post,

Everybody wants an Insurrection.

But you can’t all have it.

At least not peaceinsurrection.com, as of earlier this morning.  Need to protect the “brand” from Code Pink.  It’s mine now.

I’ve figured it out.

Nature blogging!

So you see, I walked over to Ithaca Falls, about a 10 minute walk from my house, with my friend to help him get over his blogger burnout problems.

Instapundit turns 12 and the perils of blogger burnout

Instapundit turned 12 years old this week, and received appropriate accolades.

It’s not an overstatement to say that Prof. Reynolds has helped foster and keep up the spirits of the conservative blogosphere, including Legal Insurrection and College Insurrection.

Which brings me to a related topic, blogger burnout.

Legal Insurrection turns 5 in October, and 12...

TaxProf is out with his latest law professor blog traffic rankings for the trailing 12 months ending 6-30-2013.

I reprint these each Quarter merely as a public service, because you have a right to know.

(Usual caveat, because Instapundit does not have a public SiteMeter, you can move these rankings down...

Two big things have happened this week (so far).

First, yesterday the 200,000th comment was posted at Legal Insurrection:

200,000 comments is not a lot for many websites which use third party platforms like Disqus.  We have considered many times, and ultimately rejected, the third-party platforms in favor of more control over who...

Are Blogs Outdated?

As The Times continues to change – becoming more digital, becoming more global, looking for new ways to make money as print advertising declines – it frequently adds new features or puts more emphasis on established ones, like video….

I have been traveling since about 6 this morning.

What did I miss?

Do we have amnesty yet?  Has Snowden officially gone over to the other side yet?  Is IRS-gate still a “gate”?

I haven’t read The Times of London since it erected its massive paywall.

The Gannett local papers, such as the Ithaca Journal, allow a certain number of visits, but the pop-up warnings pretty much have me not visiting.

I rarely visit The Providence Journal since it’s paywall went up, except to visit occasionally...

Good news.

Thumbs Up for comments are back.

Bad news.

Thumbs Down for comments are back.

It proved to be a formidable challenge, for a variety of reasons, after the plug-in went wild in the wake of the Great Blog Meltdown of March 2013, and After-Meltdown Tremor.

Here’s the bummer: right-wing blogs are read by only a fraction of the electorate, and so the good information put out there by the professor is almost without voice in the grand scheme of things. The truth he utters deserves greater audience.

The tragedy is that right-wing bloggers, while being something like...
