Overall Blog Statistics & The Ten Most Popular Pancocojams Posts (2017)

Compiled by Azizi Powell

[Statistics updated for December 31, 2017 at 11:53 AM]

This pancocojams post provides information about the meaning of the blog name "pancocojams" and provides statistical information about this blog.

Publishing these links in one post makes it easier for me- and hopefully you - to enjoy these posts again, and also provides an opportunity for you to check out some posts that you might have missed.

Explanation of the name "pancocojams":
"Pancocojams" is an expansion of the title that I coined* for my previous (now inactive) cultural website- "cocojams". "pancocojams" means "Black cultures around the world"
"pan" = worldwide
"coco" = chocolate (= Black people)
"jams" = music (expanded meaning - "cultures")

*It was only much later that I found out that "cocojams" was a previously existing word.

THE TEN MOST OFTEN VIEWED PANCOCOJAMS POSTS (August 29, 2011- December 21, 2017 at 1:30 PM EST )
Here’s a list (with hyperlinks) of the all time top ten pancocojams posts since this blog began in August 2011 (based on viewer hits). ["Viewer hits" statistics don't include my page views.]

Notice that some of these posts have large increases in total views from December 21, 2017 to December 31, 2017, changing their position on this list that was noted on 12/21/2017.

This may reflect the large increase in numbers of total hits for this blog in that time period. However, it's also possible that I documented the wrong total view numbers as of December 21, 2017.

Note that there also is a 2nd published copy of this same post [without visitor comments] that was published on 6/5/2016. I re-published that post because I couldn't find it using the pancocojams internal search engine. I realize now that my mistake was searching for that post using the title "The Right Rhyming Pattern For Shabooya Roll Call" without adding the last word "Verses" in that title.

The total number of views for The Right Rhyming Pattern For Shabooya Roll Call (2nd copy) on December 31, 2017 is 4,150.
