I launched this blog in February 2019 because my Gun Culture 2.0 blog has come to be read almost exclusively by people who are invested in gun culture. Although they are an important audience for my work, I also want to translate what I am learning about guns to the gun curious — those interested in but unsure about guns. People in the middle. Those who are not already 100% convinced of their views.
Compared to my first full year blogging at Gun Culture 2.0, my first year at Gun Curious was pretty successful. I posted 38 times, had 12,318 visitors, and 21,401 page views. So, between 500 and 600 page views per post, on average. I think that is reasonable for a blog that is trying to fill a niche that doesn’t have as committed an audience as a pro- or anti-gun blog does.
Although a Top 10 posts list is over one-quarter of everything I posted last year, I am going to do it anyway:
HONORABLE MENTION: Not written by me, but Why I “Need” an AR-15 by Jon Stokes was very popular, for obvious reasons.
In the end, I’m very pleased with this list as the content really reflects what I was hoping to share through this blog. Thanks for reading and hope to see you more in 2020.
