Who is Looking Feeble?

Russ Steele

Our local lefty blogger wrote this about local blogs, including by inference this one:

Sierra Foothills Report — an avocation, not a vocation — is doing well, generating more reader comments and providing some “scoops” and commentary. I notice The Union routinely follows stories that appear here first. They are too “proud” to give credit where credit is due, but the community increasingly is noticing.

The “dinosaur” political blogs — once the community’s blogging pioneers — are looking pretty feeble lately — marked by name-calling and personal attacks. They are rapidly marginalizing themselves.

Well let see how this feeble site is doing since the first to the year:


How is the Sierra Foothills Report doing over the same period?  I would like to provide a head to head report, but Quantcast says this about the site:

 We do not have enough information to provide a highly accurate traffic estimate. When Quantified, this report will provide detailed, accurate audience information.

Traffic Sources data unavailable until this site becomes quantified.

So, for any real numbers we will have wait for Sierra Foothills to have enough visitors to be counted.

  1. Russ, I thought the FUE was overtaking the Union and wiping out the conservative blogs? Well, it just seems his bloviating is trying to tell everyone that. Actually, what I hear on the street is the folks are rejecting him because all he does is trash people from Nevada County. Like he is better than they are. His numbers must be really small or he would be on the radar, wouldn’t he?

    Russ, the FUE is having a hard time finding enough of a hand full to continue jerking. Typical of The Progressive Left’s mantra…. say it 3 Xs and it must be true (or ELSE). LOL….

    Huh? I thought the De Nile was a river in a sandy place not the foothills of the Sierra

    you would think that 5 would be easy to count but I guess they feel nobody really cares anyway LOL

    Russ, I used to compare WUWT (Watts Up With That) with the alarmist bloggs on Alexa site, but it is not possible anymore. Number of visitors on many of the alarmist bloggs is a way down, and Alexa is not monitoring them anymore.

    I am glad that your blog is doing well. Good luck Russ.
