Happy 2015 to all our readers out there!
We at Lady Liberty 1885 wanted to take a moment to kick off the New Year by thanking our readers, friends and referrers as well as taking a look at the top rated stories here on the blog in 2014.
First, Thank you to our readers. We’re constantly humbled at the emails of thanks we receive and the letters supporting the work done here. Thank you for reading and commenting here at Lady Liberty 1885.
Second, we’d like to thank our tip jar hitters. This past Fall, we put a tip jar up on the site to help cover some of the fees associated with the blog and also for LL1885 (me) to make up for the gas/travel money I’ve spent out of my own pocket motoring all over the area speaking on Common Core and other issues in the last year. The goal is to use some of these funds to attend CPAC this year, so Hit The Lady’s Tip Jar!
Third, while posts to Facebook and search engines brought in tens of thousands of clicks, it was referrers and friends who brought constant traffic.
Our top referrers this year in order:
On Twitter, our biggest Retweeters included Instapundit, Michelle Malkin, Sister Toldjah and Pete Kaliner.
Many thanks go out to the noted and constant Twitter engagement by @TBradleyNC, @TaggertGirl, @EliPTweet, @JenHall, @YoungBlkRepub, @zanbunn, @DaveCarterNC, @BillGoltz, @WrightBrunoS and@TheMorningSpew.
f I have left someone off the list, know that I appreciate all my followers.
Of course, my co-blogger @ImLibertySpeaks and admin on our Facebook page, @DDog31 both get huge shout outs and my deepest thanks. This site and the Facebook presence would not be the same without their involvement.
