2016

In 2016 we had about 25,000,000 page views. If you take away PoPville.com and PoPville.com/page/2, PoPville.com/page/3, PoPville.com/page/4, PoPville.com/page/5, PoPville.com/page/6 and PoPville.com/page/7 the following was the most visited page on the site in 2016. Sadly not the most uplifting story…

“An Open Letter – A Retrospective Look at Living in Columbia Heights”

Our future is (mostly) what we, independently and collectively, choose to make of it. Looking forward to our conversations, questions, debates, rants and revels in 2017. Wishing all a happy and a healthy!! And don’t forget about the free metro and taxis on New Year’s Eve (metro beginning at midnight on January 1, with free service until close at 3 a.m.) Cheers!

Heading in to the party tonight – I thought it’d be fun to see what 10 years of blogging looks like in numbers:

Coming on 1,000,000 comments.

Coming on 50,000 posts.

Coming on 1,500 Animal Fixes.

Proposals via the animal fix One.

Engagements from folks who met through PoPville One.

Death threats, yes death threats – “that transom makes my blood boil!!!” Two. Yes that’s right, not one, but two death threats. Amazing. Fortunately, I’m still kicking (knock wood.)

Emails of support, too many to count – thank you again for all your kind words over the years and I look forward to tipping back a few with a few of you tonight!

And in unhealthy ways to cope with post election blues… just kidding – blowing off some steam is very very healthy. Blowing off some steam with great people is very very healthy. Blowing off some steam while listening to some phenomenal AZTEC SUN is very very healthy. This is going to be a very very healthy party, that I promise. And since tomorrow’s a holiday we’ll return to lamenting/fixing the country’s problems on Monday, in the meantime don’t forget your dancing shoes! See you at 6pm.
