Happy 2nd Anniversary to Us–THE iLLINOIS OBSERVER Jumps from 2 Visits in November 2007 to 8,841 Visits In November 2009


(Chicago, IL) — December 3, 2009. Happy 2nd Anniversary to us.

On November 17, 2007, THE iLLINOIS OBSERVER–originally known as Your Two Cents Less-published its first story and generated a grand total of, drum roll here, 2 visits for the month. Yep, 2.

During the month of November 2009, THE iLLINOIS OBSERVER published a raft of stories and generated 8,841 visits–our best month yet.

That’s some sort of progress.

As a result, THE iLLINOIS OBSERVER now ranks 6th in visitor traffic among the roughly 52 independent Illinois blogs that deliver state political news and commentary content.

Thank you to our all faithful readers and the new readers who land hear each day. Without your eyeballs and interest we would still in traffic rank hell.

And a special thank you to Rich Miller at The Capitol Fax Blog for including us in his blog roll and occasionally featuring some our stories on his site, generating waves of “traffic”–the mother’s milk of blogs–to this publication and providing crucial, early awareness.

Thanks, Rich.
