RRW weekly round-up for week ending March 21st; best day ever last week!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2015

We haven’t posted a round-up for a few weeks because we have been busy, but so has RRW.  Last week we set our biggest one day record with our post on Spartanburg, SC.  That post was clicked on by over 20,000 readers which we think is great for a small narrowly-focused blog like this one.

We hope a number of you let Rep. Trey Gowdy (chairman of the House subcommittee responsible for the refugee program) know how you feel!

This week Spartanburg still tops the list of most-read posts for the week.  See our daily top posts in the right hand sidebar.

Top three posts for the week are:

1) Breaking News: Spartanburg, South Carolina targeted to be colonized as next refugee ‘seed’ community

2) A reader from Malta gives us a look at what the illegal aliens are doing to the tiny island nation

3) Our fact sheet

Top countries (besides the US) from which readers came to visit RRW:

Canada

UK

Australia

Thailand

Germany

European Union (still don’t know why this is here when we have individual country stats)

Netherlands

India

France

Ireland

As we mentioned previously, 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 points I need to continue to make:

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 (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 330 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.

P.S.  In case you are wondering, this blog is a charitable enterprise on the part of its writers!
