WordPress, the blogging platform I use, provides me with all sorts of statistics about how many people view my blog each day, what posts they look at, what country they are from, how they got to my blog, etc. But the most important statistic for me is clicks. Clicks detail what sites people go to from my blog. Clicks are really important for me.
I started writing this blog to introduce people to all the amazing products made by members of our extended American family. So I have written almost 400 posts over the last two years about great American made products we all can buy to help create manufacturing jobs in our country. I’ve done lots of posts on Allen Edmonds shoes. I’ve done posts on Tom Bihn bags. I even did a post on Mrs. Grossman’s stickers! When I do these posts, I embed links to the firms I am featuring in the hope that people reading the post will visit the firm’s website and buy some of the firm’s wonderful products.
Now I don’t know how many American made products have been purchased as a result of people reading my blog, but I do know how many people have clicked on links to American made products I feature in my posts. It’s a lot. So, all I ask is keep clicking. Click on a link to King Louie clothing, Loggerhead Apparel, Jack Donnelly Khakis and Subzero appliances. You will discover great products made by members of our extended American family, and I will feel great knowing that I have played a small role in perhaps getting more of our American brothers and sisters back to work.
Now get clicking!
