The most read stories of the year, non-recruiting edition

We get it, people like recruiting. But what else was popular this year?

Cal Tobias/Rock M Nation

It’s New Years Eve, December 31st, 2023. And I want to take a moment to thank you all, the readers. Rock M Nation has had by far its best year ever.

For 15 years Rock M Nation has been a blog for Ol’ Mizzou. And while I don't have all of the historical hit counter data, and maybe Bill C. can step in and tell me different, but our site zoomed past 7.5 million page views this month. I’ve been the site manager in some way since 2017 and that is our best year with December being the best month by a good margin.

So this is me saying thank you to all the readers. Thanks to the community of people who come in most every day, and thanks to the people who plug things into search engines that lead them here. There is still some fun things coming today as we wrap up the year. But for now, here are some of the most popular stories we’ve written this year that were not recruiting related (maybe recruiting adjacent).

We also couldn’t publish all these sweet photos without Cal Tobias! And we can’t publish podcasts without Levi Hutmacher. They may not get as many clicks or credit, but without their work you’re missing out on a lot. So thanks to those two specifically.

But this is saying thanks for clicking all the above stories, and the other 1600 or so things we’ve published and written this past year. It’s been a fun 2023, and we’re super excited for 2024.
