Looking Back: The Pardon Power Blog in 2012

Despite a grim year for pardons (state and federal), it was another active year for "the little blog that can." Yes, we know that, in the big scheme of things, we are small fry. But ...

We are proud of the fact that, in 2012, we averaged several thousand visits per month and inched closer toward our 300,000th hit. Now, 30 percent of our viewers are "regulars" and 29 percent are businesses. Our top DMA's were San Francisco, New York, Washington DC and Chicago (accounting for 41 percent of our unique visitors. We are also now on Facebook (link here) and Twitter (link here).

The blog and/or its Editor were referenced by,,, the Wall Street Journal, Christian Science MonitorReason Magazine, the Economist, the Chicago Tribune, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Daily Caller, Powerline, CNN, USA Today and National Public Radio's All Things Considered.

Along the way, there were a more than a few visits by Department of Justice and even some from the Executive Office of the President of the United States (see right list of recent notable visitors in right column).

Finally, we would be remiss if we failed to mention that we received more comments on posts, and kind and supportive communications from readers than ever! For these, we are truly thankful. Happy New Year all! And thanks for stopping by!
