We made the big announcement that we would try to post more here in January 2023. We average 400 visitors from January through May. That is 600 fewer relative to when blogs were big in economics (i.e., before Twitter took over the conversation). Summer followed pattern we were accustomed to with only a fraction of the academic semester average number of visitors. Except, except for August 11 when we inexplicably enjoyed 3420 visitors. There was a post on August 20 but nothing to explain that spike — it received 692 views, 13 likes and 1 retweet on Twitter. I’m not tech savvy enough to figure out where all these came from. I’m just concluding that was a weird day.
