We’re having our tacky Sally Field moment today at The Bulldog.
Excuse us for being immodest, but the lovely and talented duo of The Bulldog and Bulldog Canadian ran up a tally of 66,897 page views for the week of March 1.
The new Bulldog Canadian is getting quite the response.
The readership so far is outstanding and the technical problems have been at a minimum … except when yours truly searched for new mobile themes because the previous one The Bulldog used for years proved inadequate for Bulldog Canadian.
Look we’re not complaining here at Bulldog Ottawa and Bulldog Canadian. But we would like a bit of help from you, the reader.
Our pageview count has jumped from around 81,000 a week during the first half of last December to just short of 122,000 a week in January. The puppies are pretty happy about that.
But we’d like to be the best. So tell us what you would like to see improved at Bulldog Ottawa and Bulldog Canadian from a design and content point of view. We can’t make, nor should we make, giant changes to the Bulldogs given the pageview growth. As well we are rather hemmed in by the format of the WordPress theme we are using.
Readership is looking up at Bulldog Ottawa and Bulldog Canadian.
The two Bulldog news sites have more than doubled their readership over the last four weeks.
Pageviews on the two websites have skyrocketed to 130,721 per week. That’s for the week of Oct. 21 to 27 … an increase of much more than 100 per cent.

If you had a bad last few days with booze, you should watch late-night host Craig Ferguson’s tragic, yet comedic, monologue on his battle with alcohol.
Here at Bulldog World Headquarters, we value your input.
And that’s because these two news sites, Bulldog Ottawa and Bulldog Canadian, are your pages. We’re just the custodians of them. For these sites are nothing without readers.
So we started hearing rumblings that the news ticker along the bottom of the page was distracting. We asked readers Saturday if they liked it over its short couple of months of existence and they responded no. You’ll notice this morning it’s gone.
Treasury Board employees have been given permission by none other than Tony Clement that they can decorate their cubicles this holiday season.
In addition this Sunday morning on Bulldog Canadian we have a raft of comment and info on the Nexen-CNOOC deal.
We have Harper’s Nexen Decision Cynical Politics Above All, that looks at the logic or lack of it on the decision. Plus Bulldog Canadian has the NDP response to the move and Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s statement on the issue.
As well, the news site features a few words on New York Times columnist Paul Krugman’s call for jobs rather than deficit-fighting. A good read for Jim Flaherty.
