Did I offend?

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a sudden drop in views on my blog.  Not an insignificant drop (for me at least, I know I'm a small blogger), but a 75% drop in views.  I started wondering if there was a post I made that offended my readers, perhaps somewhat out of line with my regular conservative principles.  I looked back and I can't see any posts that might have offended.  Then it clicked, perhaps I said something that offended Google.  The day it dropped precipitously was a Sunday when I posted a Bible verse, like I do every Sunday.  This one was about peace.

I honestly don't think that was it. I don't know what it was, but Google has never been keep on helping small bloggers, and certainly not conservative ones.  I have had an error on my ads revenue for years that I have repeatedly fixed that never seems to really go away.  I'm sure at some point my viewership numbers will return, it's no big deal, my ad revenue has always been pathetic and it's not the reason I blog anyway.  I blog to share my thoughts about politics and events and hopefully engage with others in discussions at times. 


  1. No sir, your feed has been broken. I just received all of your posts back to Friday.

  2. That seems to happen from time to time and I'm not sure why. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of blogger (or Google) and its functionality, but I have thousands of posts and porting my blog to some other platform seems rather onerous at this point.


Disagreement is always welcome. Please remain civil. Vulgar or disrespectful comments towards anyone will be removed.
