Well, I missed another statistical landmark (I also overlooked passing 3,000,000 hits; see this Aug 4, 2017 post). This morning, a reader let me know by email that, according to the stats counter in the left sidebar, Cohencentric passed a milestone sometime during over the last day or two. In the 2 years & 8 months since Cohencentric published its first post on March 7, 2015,1 this site has garnered more than 3,500,000 unique page views.2 This count does not include Cohencentric’s affiliated YouTube videos, Facebook Page, Twitter account, nor, of course, the hits garnered by Cohencentric’s predecessors, 1HeckOfAGuy.com and DrHGuy.com during their many years of operation.
Given that Cohencentric has 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 351 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, even a year after his death, 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 [↩]
