I really must pay more attention to this stuff. When I checked Cohencentric’s stats this morning, I discovered that sometime in July we had passed a landmark. In the 2 years & 5 months since Cohencentric published its first post on March 7, 2015,1 this site has garnered more than 3 million unique page views.2 This count does not include Cohencentric’s affiliated YouTube videos, Facebook Page, Twitter account, or, of course, the hits garnered by Cohencentric’s predecessors, 1HeckOfAGuy.com and DrHGuy.com.
Given that Cohencentric has routinely offered articles featuring not only Leonard’s concerts, albums, and honors but also esoterica such as Leonard changing a single word in his lyrics, Leonard’s two or three year stint as a vegetarian, a list of 342 of Leonard’s nicknames, and alternative cover art for the You Want It Darker album, it is clear that these hits reflect the intensity of interest in Leonard Cohen evident by a huge number of fans.
Cohencentric Post #1: March 7, 2015
- Blogs are programmed to post chronologically, the most recent posts appearing first. Because some entries from Cohencentric’s predecessors, DrHGuy.com and 1HeckOfAGuy.com, have been published with their original posting dates, some posts may appear to have been published earlier than March 7, 2015.

- OK, that count is a tad low; the statistical counter was dysfunctional for a couple of weeks [↩]
