This weblog, launched on the last day of March 2011, has now reached 2,500 distinct views as of July 5th. They break down as follows: March (10), April (493), May (589), June (1,124) and July (270). Without any promotion whatsoever, the average views per day has increased from April (16) to May (19) to June (37) to July (52). Feedback from readers is also very positive.
Some articles, such as Shipbuilding yes, but not the militarization of shipbuilding (May 16, 2011), have been posted on as many as ten different websites in Canada. This too illustrates a need not only for enlightened information but also a desire to raise the level of the political discourse in our country.
Throughout July and August, however, the number of new posts will be substantially less. This is to give an opportunity to pay attention to the need to raise the level of organization so that it is on par with political demands.
Thanks to all who have taken the time to visit, and especially those who have sent comments, leads or subscribed. Please keep sending your reports, articles and photographs at (e-mail) firstname.lastname@example.org
