Readers may recall that your humble blogger was in a bit of a funk as a result of a depressing drop in traffic as a result of series of Google algo changes in May. We might also have taken some collateral damage from a fistfight in comments a week before that over a post on MMT.
We wanted to let readers know that our July traffic was at the same level as of March, which is good to see since traffic levels on the Internet are generally lower during the summer, particularly on financial websites. So it appear the combination of some appeals through friends of the site that have Google connections helped, along with some remedial measures that we took.
So thanks for your patience and continued readership! Now back to our usual order of business, which is using our virtual soapbox in the park to do what we can to help rein in predatory financial players, expose elite-favoring propaganda, and promote social justice.
