400th Post on Nostalgia and Now

Nostalgia and Now started in April 2009 and the article today by David Gasten was the 400th article posted at the website.

85,039 visits have been made to Nostalgia and Now. 2,102 visits have been made so far this week.

The first full month in 2009 showed 526 visits during May of 2009. The alltime high for one month was October of 2010 when 14,039 visits were made. That happened because an article on the death of Barbara Billingsley who played June Cleaver drew many more readers than usual to the website.

Twelve posts have brought over 1,000 visitors to the website. The following list gives the total visits for each post:

Classic Television: Leave it to Beaver….15,282

Home Page……………………………………………15,115

Dust Bowl: 1930-1940 What Caused It…  4,386

Reality TV: The Little Couple……………..  3,446

Classic Cars………………………………………….2,483

Radio Flyer Wagons: Then and Now……2,075

1950’s Prices……………………………………….2,004

Four Months in Vietnam……………………1,786

From the Past: Burma Shave Signs…….1,717

Growing Up With  Model Trains…………1,629

Drive In Movies Still Operating…………1,593

History of Baby Ruth Candy Bars………1,009

One of the fastest rising posts has been Lizard Lick Towing which was posted earlier this week and is already No.9 among all articles for the last 30 days with  156 visits. Towing News has linked to the Lizard Lick article from their website.

The biggest surprise to me is the large number of visitors who read the Dust Bowl article. I wasn’t really expecting much interest since it ended about 70 years ago. None of us can comprehend how it affected those people and how it affected the states of Oklahoma and California.

None of this would be possible without the loyal readers who have came to the website from Facebook, Twitter and Digg.

I want to think each reader that has visited the site. I have written so many nostalgia posts, that I am running out of topics, and  welcome anyone that has a topic that is nostalgic related, to send any ideas for nostalgic posts to:

  1. Andrew,
    I didn’t know you had a blog.
    Or that you’d already posted 400 items on it.
    I’d like to read the one about the Dust Bowl causes.
    Can you tell me when it ran … or send me a link to it?
    Thanks,
