The Monkey Cage Is 5 Years Old Today

Five years ago today, our inaugural post was published. Since that date, The Monkey Cage has welcomed 1.8 million unique visitors, been viewed 5.6 million times, and accrued 6,276 Twitter followers.  Our roster of contributors has changed—we miss you, Lee—and grown, adding expertise in many areas of political science.  We’ve won two awards.

Of course, we remain and likely will always be a niche blog.  But we’re glad for the audience we have developed, and we’ll work to keep publicizing political science research and linking it to real-life politics and current events.

Thank you for reading!
