That’s a Wrap!

The time has come to wrap up Socially Responsible Thoughts. There is only enough time for writing one blog and I have decided to create a new one called Living in Hamilton. You can find it here:

I’ve lived in Hamilton, Ontario for 5 years and it bothers me that out-of-towners assume it is all industrial – as viewed from the Burlington Skyway. There is so much more to it and this new blog will feature the diversity, beauty and history that is Hamilton, as seen through my own life here. If you want to get off that highway and see some of the details, come and visit!

For my last post in Socially Responsible Thoughts, here are some statistical highlights to summarize the last year and a half of blogging:

  • As of today there were 8,657 views
  • The Gap post was by far the most visited at 2,821 views. Judging by the search terms used to find that post, Gap customers are still concerned about the 2007 event where a sub-contractor of Gap was caught using child labour.
  • Second most visited was the home page itself with 1265 views
  • Third was Polar Bears & Coke & WWF with 1212 views, many of which were fed from an American site which referenced my blog within their rant about Coke’s green washing.
  • Rounding out the top ten viewed posts are Shopper’s Drug Mart, McCarthy’s School Uniforms, Body Shop, British Petroleum, B Corporation, Mabel’s Labels and Drinking Hamilton’s Tap Water.
  • In the all-time top 20 search terms, a variation of ‘gap child labour’ appears 11 times
  • The remaining 9 top search terms include Body Shop (3), Mabel’s Labels (2), McCarthy Uniforms (1), Shopper’s Drug Mart (1), Give a Goat for Christmas (1) and Sunny Acres Park (1)
  • And lastly, the top referrers to this blog site were (the American site which ranted about Coke), Facebook, Twitter and Linked In.

Although there will be no new posts for Socially Responsible Thoughts, I will still be around to answer comments. I thank you for visiting Socially Responsible Thoughts and I hope you found it useful!
