Citizens For A Better Norwood

Monday, August 04, 2008

Welcome to our 3rd year and 826th blog!

We suspect our readers will be as relieved as we are to know that our Terrible Two’s are finally behinds us. Things can only get better now, right? The blog’s birthday was actually Saturday, but we’re making the official announcement today.

The list of community members we have to thank for adding value to our content this past year is so lengthy we’re afraid to start listing names for fear of leaving someone out. But you know who you are, and our regular readers know who most of you are, and we thank all of you for sending us news tips, community event information, guest blogs, topic suggestions, research material, and, yes, for sending kind emails supporting our effort. The latter always seem to arrive at precisely the right moment.

We thank our readers for taking the time to visit. Except for December's and January's, our readership has grown every month since we started. Last month, the blog had nearly 1,300 more visitors than in June. Prior to that, the biggest monthly jump was 1,110 last October. We appreciate the quality of the comments you’re making and the information and opinions you’re sharing with the rest of us. Plainly and simply, we love community dialogue!

Our blog has a voracious appetite and is never, ever sated. So, if you have information you want fellow community members to know about, don’t hesitate to send it to us at Guest blogs are always welcome, too, of course. To borrow from the New York Times, all the news that’s fit to blog will appear here. So far, our contributors are batting 1,000 on that score. Keep ’em coming!

If you have any suggestions for how we can improve our blog, please do leave them in the comments box. And, thank you, everyone, for stopping by. We hope you’ll keep coming back.
