January 17, 2012 – The 2010 Presidentiables Blog reaches 1,000,000 hits

first post in this blog was in november 22, 2008. after 3 years and 3 months, 772 posts and 10,007 comments posted, the blog has reached 1 Million hits.  that to us is a lot of zeroes and we are above ourselves that we got this far.

the blog had modest beginnings – just another blog talking about the upcoming presidential elections in 2010.  the blog quickly got hits which we credit to the fact that this is one of the first blogs to use the term “presidentiables” as a blog name. it was a marketing decision. we thought getting a recognizable name and being first at it was going to be critical in getting readership. we thought it was natural for netizens to search for the word “presidentiables” to get information or news on the upcoming presidential elections.

the strategy worked.

1 Million hits was reached sometime in the evening of January 17, 2012

after the 2010 elections, we thought of closing down the blog. but then there were requests to continue it and thus we transformed the blog to talk about topics other than the election that was already concluded but also national issues in politics or governance. and those that concern the people.

we like to thank those who contributed to the 1 Million hits.

first post was in November, 2008
