Demographics

On July 16th, A.D. 2011, I posted the following article:

This blog tends to deal with unusual and sometimes seemingly fantastic ideas.  As a result, some of my readers may regard this blog as a “guilty pleasure” somewhat akin to reading the National Enquirer’sarticles about Elvis being a space alien.

In fact, some of my readers might even suppose that, because they read this blog, they may be “extremists” on the “lunatic fringe”.

Therefore, I want to share the information about my readers’ demographics because, as you’ll see, this blog is not home to the lunatic fringe or terrorists.  Instead, this blog tends to attract some of the most affluent and best-educated people in the country.  This demographic is good evidence that the ideas espoused here—although often politically incorrect—are worthy of your consideration.

The high quality of my readers implicitly validates the quality of my articles.

More, I want you to know that, as one of my readers, the people you’re associating with on this blog tend to be pretty good people.  Thus, by implication, you might not be be a member of the “lunatic fringe” but rather one of a vanguard of intelligent people who exploring some “ideas whose time has come”.

•  Numbers.  Before I get into the demographics, here are some numbers:

WordPress (which hosts this blog) reports that in A.D. 2008 (when I first started this blog) I averaged 70 “views” per day.  A.D. 2009: 148.  A.D. 2010: 274.  2011 (so far): 902 views per day.

So far as I know, the average blog attracts about 25 views per day.  So, I’m doing much better than average.  Still, my “view’s” aren’t big numbers.  But I’m encouraged that my audience tends to double or triple each year.

My current objective is to reach 10,000 views a day—about ten times the current number.  At the current rate of growth, I might reach my objective within the next 3 or 4 years.  If this blog hits “critical mass” and interest really “jumps,” I might reach my objective much sooner.  (If any of you know how to accelerate that growth rate, I’d appreciate hearing from you.)

•  Demographics.  There are independent services that track the numbers and demographics of visitors to hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of websites and blogs.  I didn’t order this service.  I don’t pay for it.  It’s just something they “do”.  Much of their information is available for free.  You can visit their websites, enter the URL of any blog or website, and they’ll give you whatever demographics they have.

For example, according to quantcast.com (see, http://www.quantcast.com/adask.wordpress.com#demo), the current demographics for this blog are predominately:

Male (62%);

Older (42% are over 50 years old);

Caucasian (86%);

No Kids in the Household (76%—this makes sense since my “older” audience tend to be grandparents);

More Affluent (38% of my readers earn over $100,000 per year); and,

College Graduates and Post Graduates (45% college; 23% post graduates).

That’s a pretty good demographic.  In fact, if you visited quantcast.com and entered the URL for Time Magazine (www.time.com) in the quantcast search engine, you’d see that the demographics for this blog and Time’s are almost identical.  Maybe I should advertise in Time, hmm?

More importantly, insofar as this blog’s demographics parallel those of Time Magazine, it might be argued that the ideas espoused on this blog are every bit as attractive to “mainstream America” as those espoused in Time. Our ideas have yet to really “catch fire,” but our demographics suggest that America may be ready and perhaps even eager to consider our ideas. (Maybe I should write book, hmm?)

This blog tends to attract well-educated, affluent, mature, white males and grandparents.  We can infer from the demographics that my readers tend to be intelligent, articulate, prudent and hard-working.  (You don’t usually become affluent by being lazy, poorly-educated, crazy or violent.)

Even I’m surprised.  Until I saw these demographics, I had no idea I was reaching an audience that was not only intelligent (you’ve got to have some intellect to read this blog) but affluent.  Like some of my readers, I’d previously presumed that my audience was closer to the lunatic (but intelligent) fringe than to an affluent upper-middle class with post-grad degrees.

Imagine my surprise.  I must be doing something right.

These demographics tend to validate the ideas on this blog, not only to my audience, but also to me.

• Comments.  Finally, note that these demographics don’t simply describe my readers—they describe the people who post “comments” on this blog and thereby actively participate in this blog.

In the last six months or so, I’ve been persistently surprised by the high quality of the comments on this blog.  When you read a comment on this blog, there’s a good chance that it was written by someone who fits the previous demographic.  The person posting the comment is probably well-educated, intelligent, affluent and mature.

Of course, we get a few “flakes” who post comments that are, at best, gratuitous.  But many of the “comments” provide real information and insight and make an enormous contribution to the value of this blog.  You can get an education by just reading some of the comments.

In the end, I’m even more proud of my audience than I am of my own articles.

You folks flatter me with your attention.

I am deeply grateful.

    I know a few folks who follow you and they don’t fit the demographic according to MRC traffic measurement: 25-30 year old American males.

    Congratulations on getting your word out! I just heard you on the Infowars money bomb show. You’ve been at this longer than I have. I average about 0 views a day but I don’t submit my writing until I’m satisfied. I write every day but I may only post something about once a week.

    What you don’t see in demographic’s is that there are a large # of vet’s and other gov workers who do not dare! Then there are folks like me who disseminate. There are 3000 or so on my leg of the alert roster. Keep it up.

    Mr. Adask, I listened tonight to your conversations and observations with AJ @ Infowars 8/28/12, You Tube program. I’m always amazed by when and where I find honest and spiritual human-beings. “Everything happens for a reason” —– Sometimes great things! Following your blog will be refreshing in this world of Dis-information. Continue the good work. Sincerely,

        Adask, if you’re still interested in increasing your numbers some three years after you posted this article, here’s an idea:

        During ’07, I began campaigning for Ron Paul and haven’t stopped yet. One part of my contribution to the campaign has been promotion…building emailing lists for me and others to send timely and, hopefully, thought provoking information across the USA and beyond. I’m sure other readers/posters on this site have similar contacts.

        The articles and discussions on this blog in front of my RP addressees or RP supporters is certainly NOT preaching to the choir. This is new to most of them. As for RP supporters, generally, the demographic includes a great percentage of youngsters…they’re the ones who will benefit most from information here.

        Consider this thought: if every reader and/or poster on this blog sends this blog’s link to 30 addresses already in each email address list, how many new people would have the opportunity to tune in? If each of us sent the link to an additional/different 30 addresses periodically, how many more would have a chance to participate?

        The numbers can be huge with this step alone, not to mention the potential for exponential growth. These numbers don’t even include other forms of social media sharing.This is how critical mass can be reached.

        Yours for consideration.

    I’m certainly interested in expanding my readership. The problem is that I have absolutely no aptitude or inclination to spend time looking for more readers that might be spent researching new insights or writing articles. I’ve been thinking about hiring someone to try to promote this blog, but I haven’t gotten around to it. If you know someone who might be interested and able to provide such promotion, let me know.

    As for asking readers to send my articles to even 10 other people, I think it’s a good idea–but I really hate to tell others what to do. If they want to promote the blog, good. If they don’t, that’s OK, too.

    Truth is, I am terrible at self-promotion because I don’t care about much other than trying to find new insights and figure out how to communicate them.

    I guess, in some regards, I’m something of an idiot savant. I can do one or two things fairly well, and the rest I don’t even bother to try.

      Could it be that too many are content within their “idiot savant” mentalities and are afraid to venture beyond?

      OR

      Could it be that too many do not utilize the greatest potential of their “idiot savant” capabilities?

    THE MOTHER OF ALL LIES THAT CHRIST WAS OF JEWISH BLOOD LINEAGE
    In retrospect, there is no such thing as an ethnic Jewish bloodline nor nation. The fallacy of such assertion is that Christ was a Jew. This is absolutely ridiculous and is an affront to all sustained truth. At the base of the cross a sign was posted, ” king of the Jews “. This is incorrect for the word Jew did not show up in world literature until after 1776 AD. Actually, it was posted ” king of the Judeans.
    In physical composure the word Jew has no physical coronations and is of abstract
    value. Here, is no flesh and blood personality. In this view the Jew does not exist and is a complete fabrication. When God appointed David over Israel David was warned as to how the Jebusites controlled Palestine. When Christ walked the pathways through the inner city about eighty percent of the people were of various nations. Only a hand-full were Israelites. Now, this is where the term Jew is hung on Christ. By law, if one was born in Jerusalem then this name of birth was given. By birth only was Christ a citizen, but by race He retained a bloodline back through to the house of David. Our Lord was born into the house of Judah and not in the tribe of Judah. Judah was of no
    racial pollution. In essence, from Mary back to Abraham and Noah our Lord’s lineage was pure.
    Down through times biblical translators came up with the Jew for a translation of Judah. Satan and his gang coined the word Jew after the civil way in 1776. Now Christ is called a Jew.

    Historicity reflects as to the natural enemies of God, Christ, in numerous ways. The most simple investigation is to reflect upon the original house of Israel. Jacob had twelve sons. God named Jacob as Israel. Jacob had four wives that actually peopled the then known world.
    No where within this tribe will we discover any sort of so-calculated Jewish blood lineage. This is God’s holy and chosen people, the house of Israel.

    Little doubt about it on many occasions individuals within the house of Israel went a whoring after strange gods. The most seemingly outrageous act was when Esau, brother of Jacob violated God’s law in guarding against intermarriage with foreign flesh. Isaac and Rebecca warned
    Esau, but Esau married into the Canaanite race of which had escaped the Great Deluge, Flood, in Noah’a day, when sexual perversion was rampart. The bottom line is this;
    We have a race of devils here on earth. Mental and physical infidelity couples our Satanically devised two-party system. Within this misled gang of roving scoundrels is a playground
    for a nest of international financial political bootlegging working hand-in-glove with Beelzebub and his family queers and personality ingrates. The vast majority carry the ancient blood line of Esau.
    God hates Esau and his contemporary pundits of whom call Christ a Jew as a contemporaneous
    slang word as pushed off on them through all the fraudulent man-made religious empires that come and go on the American political industry.

    HORSEWHIPPING AMERICA
    Motherly love towards a newborn infant is pure and holy in giving thanks to our creator as a newborn soul enters the earthly atmosphere. However, in adulthood the once babe-in arms walks into a little understood world as a blind bat. From the breast of motherly love and childhood attentiveness the band is broken. With hat in hand, such personalities must seek shelter and bread. With no talent for productive inclination the army came to the rescue. Four years of military indoctrination, three-meals a day, roof over his head, with a check and a chick; every month is unbelievable. Surviving off the taxpayers hide, while lounging around the post exchange, was a genuine paradise, an alcoholic was in the making. After missing roll-call successively, and failing the dress-code, a psychiatrist gave this deadbeat, Hammerhead, an option,
    pick up a section eight discharge or wind up to the brigg. We will coin this jerk as a meathead.

    Hammer was 22 with seventh-grade learning when he was escorted from uncle Sam’s residence in Fort Benning, Ga. in 1940. He actually hated the military’s social conservativism and compliance with organized confusion. Too, his three-sisters and two brothers were still at home in Skidmore, Ga. His father was a terminally disabled alcoholic, in holding down a low-paying deputy sheriff’s job. Hamma ended up in Gluttersville, Ga. His welfare operative, Gloria Hunclestein, recommended medicaid and Wheels on Meals.
    Hamma persued extra food through dumpster-diving. He became friends with a disbarred shyster who stole child-relief funds from city charities.This lawyer, too, was evicted from the military for stealing food from a chow-hall to feed his family of seven. Here we have two loose cannons, at the same social bearings prowling the streets at day time and sleeping in alleyways at night. Still, the military GI Bill of Rights was a final hope from taxpayers, of whom lived and worked for a decent life, being plundered of their hard-earned cash. We will name the shyster as Slick. As a sideline, Both Slick & Hammer took a GI Bill of Rights crash-course in law. It was now Slick and Hammer law firm. Life took on a new path.

    Lingering hunger was avoided, as mutual souls, pick-pocketed the poor and helpless. Time was passed via begging, drunkenness, panhandling, alley-trolling, and fondling garbage containers. Slick would skin his clients from head to toe, while Hamma reversed the act of robbery, from toe to head. This lousey sort of legal gangsterism is a by-product in the name of the National Lawyer’s Guild operates every manner of plundering our national society. These shysters never miss an opportunity in milking hopeless people down, for they say, “ shoot low fellow shyster, for some jerks may be riding shetland ponies”. Slick and Hammerhead edged their way into both previously bought and paid for political parties. One party is a whore and the other a prostitute. Immediately, Slick and Hammer were political whores nesting in between a two-party confederation of inhouse fornication, as masters of deception, in the hands of Beelzebub and his family of devils. Indeed; a specialised confederation of professionally designed dirty bastards, in selling America short. From the gutter of whence such professional rabble came elevated as parasites.

    America has an enemy within. The prevailing threat against our republic is not of stone and shield, such as the federal reserve, the treasury, supreme court, presidency, Council on Foreign Relations, Pentagon, Wall Street, CIA, NATO, IRS, FBI, terrorists or state Dept. All of these state mechanisms are in place as pre-planned elite global aristocracy. National ruling bourgeois, slave masters of criminality, are pawns in the wealthy is a front for Zionism. For sure, the middle-class is created as an influential screen, and an opponent of all lower-class productive citizens as thum-suckers. From this anti-social class of paranoids and professional parasitism is the federal reserve, as allied with sixty global reserve outlets. The actual enemies of all gentile Homo Sapiens is a race of devils in the flesh having no ties to material industries. Their whole global system is held in check through subservient miscreants such as the Slick Humps and Hammerhead’s double think-alikes, within a vast watering hole in line with such thum-sucking leeches!

In noting that America is nothing more than an island flotilla, as an appendage to to the City of London House banking, that rests its monetary tentacles into the world’s fluid money supply, in controlling the USA. An alien political inquisition has its awaiting official, civil eccleasiacal immunity input via intellectual hmbug to politically garrot any positive individual cuddling conservative options, in saving this Republic.
    Satanic driven mobs opting for democracy; for free speech and liberty, has been nailed down, screwed down and rocketed off into infinity. Millions of Hammaheads has decreed this through official parasitism.
