The Best of 2014

Thanks to you, 2014 was another great year here at The Western Word (TWW)!

TWW has been an active blog since January 10, 2005, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

A special thanks to the 163 subscribers to TWW. By the way, you can be notified of new columns by subscribing – and it’s FREE.  You can do that by clicking on the +Follow tab in the bottom right corner and entering your e-mail address, or by going to the subscribe box on the right side of the page (under the Twitter feed box) and entering your e-mail address there.

It is always fun to see which columns are viewed the most and from where the columns are viewed. This past year people from 98 countries visited TWW. A special “shout-out” to the nine people in China who stopped by!

In 2014, there were 315 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 2,415 posts.

Listed below are the top five columns that received the most views in 2014:

5. MT House 2014: The Circular Firing Squad

This April 2014 column was about the Republican U.S. House primary race in Montana and some Republicans saying that Ryan Zinke was not conservative enough.

4. MT Senate 2014 – Who won the first debate?

The June 2014 column asked the poll question, “Who do you think won the June 14 U.S. Senate debate between John Walsh, Steve Daines, and Roger Roots?”

3. U.S. House: Pass Unemployment Extension

In this April 2014 column, I wrote about the Senate passing an unemployment extension bill and that Congressman Steve Daines (R-Mont.) should push for this bill to get a vote in the House.

2. Comment Cards, Tips, & Blogs

This is a column from August 2013 that still gets a lot of views. The column was about Great Falls Tea Party activist Cyndi Baker writing in her personal blog about a customer at the restaurant where she is employed leaving a note on the customer comment card that was mildly critical of her political views.

1. MT Senate 2014: Getting Nasty

This June 2014 column was about Montanans being subjected to some interesting ads in the senate race between U.S. Representative Steve Daines and U.S. Senator John Walsh.

Thanks to all the folks who stopped by to visit TWW, and to those who linked to this site – thank you!
