January Retrospective

Share this post:

In Custodia Legis had a terrific January!  We had the most page views ever in a month for the blog.  We have now posted over 400 times (have you read them all?).

The month was led by a trio of posts.  Last year’s post on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day tops the list.  People were also enthusiastic to learn about the new Congressional Record App.  Rounding out the top three was the post announcing our new Law Librarian of Congress, David Mao.  Not a bad top three.

I’ve had a couple of people mention how they like the retrospective posts, which is always great to hear.  I hope they provide a nice recap and gateway to our blog (for those of you might not have read all the posts).  These retrospective posts have made the top ten list for the last four months.

Before taking a look back at January 2012, the top three from January 2011 were:

1. Greetings from the Law Librarian of Congress
2. John Peter Zenger – Pic of the Week
3. THOMAS is Now on

Currently, the top posts for last month:
1. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
2. Now There’s a Congressional Record App for That
3. Meet the New Law Librarian of Congress, David Mao
4. “Bills To Be Considered on the House Floor” Repository
5. Black’s Law Dictionary, 1st Edition – Pic of the Week
6. Happy Seventeenth Birthday THOMAS!
7. Celebrating the New Year with a Look Back at the Old Year
8. Congressional Record: Print to Pad – Pic of the Week
9. December Retrospective
10. The History of the Mexican Constitution

Our top commented on blog post was our most viewed new post of the month, Now There’s a Congressional Record App for That.

On our Facebook page, the most liked post was Now There’s a Congressional Record App for That and was followed closely behind by Happy Seventeenth Birthday THOMAS! The most clicked through post from Facebook was also Now There’s a Congressional Record App for That.  On Twitter, it was Meet the New Law Librarian of Congress, David Mao.

This month, we interviewed Ken Sigmund and David, the new Law Librarian of Congress.  My favorite photos from January are:
