RRW Weekly round-up for week ending February 6th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 8, 2015

Haven’t rounded up for two weeks—away last weekend!

So, I didn’t get to tell you yet that for January 2015 we reached another milestone—best month ever in terms of the number of readers arriving here.

Here are the top most-read posts for this week (top daily posts are in right hand side bar):

1) Australia grapples with Bacha Bazi compulsive predators

2) Seattle Somalis protest against a refugee agency over Mohammed cartoon

3) France: EU shaken by rise of Le Pen in polls

Top countries from which visitors arrived (besides the US):

Australia

Canada

UK

France

Malta (those Maltese seemed to like the Le Pen story)

New Zealand

Germany

Sweden

Netherlands

Finland

And, although we don’t normally go beyond the top ten, next after Finland was Romania (that is a first to find that country so high on the list).

Really the primary purpose of our occasional weekly updates is to help new readers get oriented and to help you all find useful information among our 6,000 plus posts!

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel with two new comments from me:

First, we do screen our comments and don’t post any that threaten any kind of violence and we don’t post ones filled with foul language.  An occasional expletive might slip in if the comment is otherwise a good one.  You are always free to disagree with our point of view if you follow those two simple rules.

And the other thing I want to mention is about e-mails that come to you every time we post.  They come directly from wordpress to subscribers.  We don’t send out e-mails.  So, if we are posting too much for your e-mail inbox, then just unsubscribe and visit RRW when you have the time I understand completely about too many e-mails!  You might want to simply follow us on twitter or on facebook (below).

This is where you can find information if you are arriving here at RRW for the first time (in addition to our fact sheet). We have over 6,000 posts.

*  See our categories (left hand sidebar)

*  See the tag clouds (right hand sidebar)

*  Also, we have a great search function and since neither the categories nor the tags go all the way back to our first posts more than seven years ago, use the search window with a few key words.  You might want to first try your city, state, or country to see what we have reported from there over the years.

Readers from Europe should search for key words ‘Invasion of Europe’ for all of our many posts on the migration crisis on the Continent.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 321 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.

Past weekly roundups can be found in our category entitled ‘blogging.’

If you wish to be notified when we post, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook!

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

It occurs to me that I do see everyone’s comments to posts because we do screen them (no foul language, no threats), so if you have something you want me to see, I don’t at all mind if you send the link as a comment to a post, even if it’s off-topic.

To regular readers, thank you for your continued concern for this very important issue.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
