Six MonthsBy Patrick J. Deneen for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
We set up here on the porch six months ago today. Many words later, it’s still a nice place to relax and shoot the breeze.
To mark the occasion, a brief summary:
We’ve had 81,000 visitors making some 220,000 visits, looking at 627,000 pages.
385 posts have received 5,078 comments from 146 commenters. The most comments – without surprise – come from the great D.W. Sabin, with 429, followed by Mr. Cheeks with 307. The most posts have been penned by the yours truly – prolix as ever – with 56 (make that 57).
I invite newcomers to mark the occasion with a visit to my first post: A Republic of Front Porches. It still says as well as, if not better than, anything else I’ve written here the reasons for spending some time on the porch.
Here’s to another eventful six months…
