Just before midnight on August 19th, The Liberty Papers had its 500,000th visitor as registered by Sitemeter.

Not too bad, considering that we hit 100,000 back on January 27th, and hit 200,000 on March 19th . and a quarter million on  April 10th.

On behalf of my fellow contributors, I’d like to thank everyone who has read what we’ve written, whether you agree with it or not. We’re not here to promote any agenda other than the agenda of freedom, and open debate is always welcome.

  3. Yay Us!

    And thanks to all our readers. We went from almost nothing at the beginning of this year, to 500,000 only 3/4 of the way through it. It took me almost two years to do that on my personal blog.

    That’s neither scientific nor indication of anything particularly useful… :-P

  5. I’m willing to bet cold, hard cash that most of those hits were because of Doug’s Ron Paul posts.

  6. Nick,

    I’d bet you’re right about that.

    There’s no doubt that Ron Paul is hot on the Internet.
