Who Reads Truth Before Dishonor?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/09/02

I added the Flag Counter back in October of 2009 because I was interested in the outreach of Truth Before Dishonor. I wanted to know who read this decidedly American and decidedly Christian Conservative political site. And to say I’m satisfied with the geopolitical breakdown of the viewers of this site would be an understatement.

Nearly 1 in 5 viewers of this site hail from outside the US. And I am overjoyed at that number. TBD is not just reaching Americans but people from a great many countries. TBD has reached a total of 162 different countries so far. And the United Kingdom is fast approaching the point where it becomes the third nation with more than 1,000 unique viewers.

Roughly 4 out of 5 viewers of this American, Christian Conservative political site hail from the US. And I am very pleased the ratio is so low. I have seen various sites where the totals are more along the lines of 9 in 10 from the US. I am proud of the wider dissemination that TBD has. While the goal of TBD is to reach as broad an audience and as many readers as possible, to provide Truth in the ever-lasting struggle against Leftist lies, it is not strictly an American goal. If only the US has the Truth and the rest of the world suffers under Socialist lies, the world is not a better place, and the US is evermore on the brink of destruction. Thus, the 1 in 5 viewers from outside the US are very welcome and very desired here. Would that it were 1 in 4! And, while TBD has more than doubled its daily viewership this year over last year, would that that number would more than treble again.

It is my desire — and I expect the desire of every author here — that TBD makes a very real difference in the governments and lives of all peoples, whether they be Americans, Israelis (as this site is officially and decidedly pro-Israel), Canadians, Europeans, Asians, Africans, or what have you. We even love people who live in Steak-and-Kidney!

So, what is the break-down of the viewers of TBD?
Roughly 4 in 5 hail from the US.
About 1 in 30 are Canadian.
Another 1 in 50 are from the United Kingdom.
Another 1 in 80 each are from Germany and Croatia (roughly speaking).
Nearly 1 in 100 each are from Australia and India.
Israel, which has a current population of less than 8,000,000, closely mirroring the total population of Virginia, the 12th most populous state in the US, and barely over half of one percent of India’s population of 1.22 billion, still accounts for more than 1 in 250 visitors here.

Of the over 160 countries represented, 23 countries have broken the 100 unique visitor threshold.

We at Truth Before Dishonor are very appreciative of every viewer here, not only the 4 in 5 which are American, but also the 1 in 5 which are not. You are what make this site. Please, after reading the “about” and “comment policy” pages, do add your own comments and build discussions. And if you are Israeli, do read the “Pro-Israel” page. You are not alone. And rest assured, we Americans are far more Israel-friendly than our current President, and tens of millions of us are working very hard to rectify that situation. Your comments are more than welcome. They are desired.

Sudden Interest In Gloria Steinem

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/12/10

So last night I examine my hit totals and I find a big surprise. Nearly 300 searches for Gloria Steinem hit my site. My Flag Counter said nearly all those hits were unique hits. Of course, since basically the only time I mentioned her was in a Rule 5 posting, the searchers didn’t find what they were searching for. Wondering why all the sudden interest in Gloria Steinem, I checked some of my resources. Scanning through my FaceBook and Twitter accounts, I found nothing that jumped out and said Gloria Steinem. Neither did Patterico’s Pontifications, Hot Air, The First Street Journal. Already today, nearly 100 more hits looking for Gloria Steinem has caused me to look at other sources of information I use. Nothing on The Other McCain, not even their “Live At” linkages. Legal Insurrection had nothing that stood out and said “Gloria Steinem”.

Surely, if Gloria Steinem had done something blogworthy in the past 36 hours, the above blogs would have said something. So I wondered to myself if the sudden heavy searching for Gloria Steinem was actually searching for Gloria Allred. The problem with that possibility is that none of my resources had said anything that jumped out Allred over the past 36 hours, either. So why this sudden interest in a whacked out and washed up ’60s reject radical Leftist?

Seriously, you searchers, what is the sudden jump in interest for her? I’d like to know.
