THANKS Readers & Advertisers for another great 6 months of website traffic!

We’d like to take a moment to thank all our great Readers and Advertisers for their support, as our traffic statistics for the first six months of 2015 were awesome!

In our ongoing policy of transparency, here are our traffic stats as per Google Analytics for the time period from Jan. 1, 2015 to June 30, 2015, versus the same period in 2014 (click image to see larger version):


  • Sessions: UP +31%!
    501,387 vs 382,381
    Average: 83,565/month
  • Pageviews: UP +130%!
    1,615,767 vs 702,035
    Average: 269,285/month

We believe that our continued, strong traffic growth is due to the fact that most people prefer to get their news online – and quickly – than in print. Personally, we think that by the time something is printed, it’s “old news.”

And when was the last time you were able to instantly comment and share your thoughts about a story in a printed newspaper or magazine?

We’re also proud to abide by time-tested journalism ethics. We’re an award-winning member of the Society of Professional Journalists, and we adhere to their proven journalistic standards.

Again, THANKS for all your support for making The B-Town Blog the #1 local news, events, arts, entertainment and more source for the area! And please support our Advertisers – without them, we couldn’t do what we do.
