herkimerpost.com–2021-2022 Traffic Statistics

These are the annual traffic statistics for herkimerost.com and our associated Herkimer Post YouTube channel. In the past 12 months, visitors from over 60 countries viewed the blog about 108,000 times. Our YouTube channel had 8,062 views in the same 12 month period. Since we first published in 2015, the Herkimer Post has had about 250,000 views, our YouTube channel about 140,000.. (FB News and China social media giant Weibo picked up our Herkimer child trafficking exposé, FB multiple times.)

Our masthead reads “We Publish What They Won’t”. This is even more true than when we first published in 2015. In an era when local newspapers are being absorbed and gutted by hedge funds and large national chains, people are turning to alternate news sources to know what’s happening in their communities.

People Seeking Climate Change Havens Bring Viewers

We seem to have had a lot of views from people outside the area looking to relocate to a climate-change safe area. Herkimer’s in the heart of a climate-safe goldilocks zone that’s predicted to boom. Housing sales here seem to back this up, with homes in the region selling quickly and often for more than the listing price. 

When we moved to Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue from Sarasota 8 years ago, it was an open sewer of gang filth running drugs and trafficking kids. Those posts and our related videos brought us a lot of hits. herkimerpost.com became an almost daily journal of Herkimer crime.

Things are better now–this blog and our cameras are partially responsible.  Local law enforcement upped their game. Some nights we have an armada of very big federal drones over south Herkimer village. There are still about five houses on Pleasant Avenue harboring gangers. Their income seems way down, though. One of our more prominent local landlords has seemingly created a sanctuary for some of them. Historically gangs vanish as prosperity rises.  And in Herkimer, prosperity is rising. 

A Happier New Year to us all.

Mohawk Valley Walk - River Park - HerkimerI have mapped our extremely excellent morning Mohawk River Walk with Bear the dog. If you live in Herkimer Village, NY you can easily enjoy this experience too – at least whenever weather permits.

Mohawk River Walk Tree Herkimer
Is this Mohawk River tree big enough for you?

Recently, our Village has been getting an amazing makeover, provided by the people who live here. It turns out that we love nature and gardening and whether our budget is big or small, many of us manage to create exuberant environments on our adorable country lanes.

Now featured are flower boxes, gardens, wildflowers, the occasional groundhog, birds, butterflies and a stately and nearly empty river park where you can enjoy the river, ancient trees, a picnic area, fishing and even clean toilets. The best summer fun is just minutes walk away!
