RBC readership has grown by leaps and bounds this year with the addition of some new bloggers, more posts, and better web linking work thanks to Steve Davenport (i.e., Getting us into Google News).
At the end of September, I had a joke post to cause and to note our first month of breaking 150,000 visits. That was a milestone, as were the 242k page views for the month.
But by November, monthly pageviews had risen to 371k! Part of this no doubt was a surge in the week before the election, but to compare month-to-month, we have already had more page views this month than we did in all of December of last year.
Of course, in the grand scheme of things, this probably means that we get as many readers a year as the Daily Mail and HuffPo get every five minutes, but it is nonetheless gratifying that there is apparently a growing appetite for public policy analysis and civil debate by a team of bloggers and a cadre of intelligent commenters.
