Because it’s almost the end of the semester here at Syracuse University, the web team would like to use this space to wrap up all the bitchin’ stuff about the JERK Blog for Fall 2008:
Since the beginning of September, the JERK Blog has garnered 11,233 views and counting. The blog only has 15,182 views total since its inception in February. That means about 74% of the total views have come in the past 3+ months.
The blog had its most hits on October 29, which featured “Gore Galore” by Sarah Lee, “Cult School Musical” by Alex Rabinowitz, and “Halloween: Animation Style” by Mike Estabrook.
Some of our posts have also been linked to sites like The Release, istumbled, Pulled Into Syracuse, Largehearted Boy, and All Nudist among countless others.
Here’s JERK‘s top 5 most viewed posts in the last 3 months:
1) “The Top 5 Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Albums of 2008″ – 188 views
2) “Searchers Find Lost Man, Avert Eyes” by Kyle Adams – 176 views
3) “It’s OK To Stick It There” by Lola – 119 views
4) “The Hottest Chicks in Metal” – 102 views
5) “A Classic Revisited: Rushmore” by Mike Estabrook – 97 views
None of this could have been accomplished without our EXCELLENT writers, who put a lot of their time into making JERK one of the best college blogs around. Our contributors for the Fall 2008 semester were (some of whom will be returning next year): Alejandra Quintero, Alex Rabinowitz, Amity Paye, Ashley Jonson, Emily Warne, Jennifer Ward, John Cassillo, Jose Martinez, Julia Askenase, Kyle Adams, Liam McCabe, Mike Estabrook, Mitchell, Peggy McWeeny, Sarah Lee, Sarah Parker, and Sunni Brydum (sorry if we’ve forgotten any!).
Overall, it has been an awesome semester for the JERK blog, and JERK in general. For more JERK, check out the newly designed jerkmagazine.net. Also, Our December 2008 issue is currently hitting the stands so go pick up your copy!
Come back for sloppy seconds next semester…
