We have quite a bit of new to share with you.
First, we have a new Featured Blogger joining us.
Christian Hoopes a freelance writer during most of his free time, except during special occasions such as when he's asleep or they're interviewing that girl who used to play Shannon on "Lost." He has written and worked for newspapers of all shapes and sizes, and has been a regular contributor to such noteworthy sites as Countingdown.com, UGO.com, Christian's personal blog, and numerous family newsletters, including the special Christmas edition. And yes, you're pronouncing his last name wrong. It rhymes with "books." You'd have to be from Wyoming to understand.
Look for more fun and funny articles like 7 Inventive Ways to Go To Sleep coming to you soon.
Second, we have some really cool and interesting things in the works. This week, you will be seeing a series of changes to reorganize the site. We are hoping it will help make it easier to navigate and find things.
We hope you like the changes. We would love comments on how we could improve our site and whether you like the changes or not. Please feel free to comment below and let us know what you think.
Third, we achieved a major milestone for the site this week. We had set out as a site goal to be in the Technorati 10,000 by the end of the year. Yesterday, we were the 9, 287th blog on the web out of the 49.9 million (yes that's almost 50 million blogs) measured by Technorati.com. Hooray!
Technorati Top 9287
Fourth, we achieved record traffic this month, and we think the monthly numbers will include about 450, 000 page views and almost 250,000 unique visitors. This week, we even had the brief pleasure of being one of the top 11,000 or so websites in the world in traffic according to Alexa.com's ranking of approximately 3 million websites.
We've really proud to have achieved all of this in only 4 months.
