My Blog's Most-Read Articles

Even though I've neglected this blog for two years, it still gets a lot of page views.

* May 24 = 178 page views

* May 25 = 254 page views

* May 26 = 215 page views

* May 27 = 213 page views

* May 28 = 162 page views

* May 29 = 98 page views

* May 30 = 177 page views

* June 1 (at 6:30 p.m.) = 241 page views

The main reason I still get so many page views is an article I wrote about freshman beanie caps in May 2009. That article currently averages almost a hundred page views a day -- and has accumulated more than a quarter-million page views in the past six years!

If this is some kind of nefarious manipulation of the Internet, I cannot imagine its purpose.

Blogger provides me statistics on page views. Below is a list of my webpages that have been visited most often. In a few of the cases, Blogger provided the number of views I got in the last week -- from May 25 through June 1, 2015.
