25 Most-Read NLJ Articles From Jan-June 2022

I have a tradition of publishing a year-in-review dialogue on New Years Day wherein I have our site’s resident fictional dialogue duo, Justin and Justina, discuss the most-read articles of the previous year. You can see our 2020 and 2021 year-in-review posts. The statistics for our year-in-review articles come from our privacy-friendly local analytics solution, Koko Analytics. Because I have access to those statistics all year around, and I use them to list our most-read articles by week in our Saturday newsletters, I thought that it would be interesting to provide a look at our most-read articles from the first-half of 2022, which we will be able to refer back to in our year-in-review post on January 1, 2023.

Koko Analytics comes with some limitations in the interest of privacy, but I discovered while writing a review that its referer count almost perfectly matches Google Search Console statistics (Google counts how many times someone clicks a New Leaf Journal article from Google, we do not use Google Analytics on The New Leaf Journal) – so I will assume the statistics are accurate enough for all normal purposes. Below, I will list the 25 most-read New Leaf Journal articles from January 1, 2022, through June 30, 2022, inclusive. As of June 30, 2022, there were 613 articles published on The New Leaf Journal. The 613 articles do not include Leaflet microposts, which you will see below took the first and fourth spots on our half-year ranking.
