Turner Report reaches 24,000 posts, nearing 6 million views

Friday night, this blog reached the 24,000 post mark.

I would never have thought that possible when I started the Turner Report in October 2003. The blog kept a small, but steady readership for the first eight years with some spikes when I was writing about the Bruce Speck Administration at Missouri Southern State University, the Kanakuk sex scandals and offering critiques of area media.

The Turner Report growth began after the Joplin Tornado and has continued over the past four and a half years, bringing it to its current status of reaching 150,000 to 200,000 readers each month.

Sometime within the next two weeks, the blog will reach another milestone when it hits six million views.

Thank you, readers, for your support over these past dozen years.
