Woods and Waters An outdoor blog by John McCoy

Thank you!!!

Wow. Exciting things are happening at Woods & Waters Online!

This past weekend, our hit counter passed the quarter million mark for the year. A few days before that, our hit counter passed the half-million mark since I started the blog in 2008.

Readership has built slowly but steadily. From just 5,000 hits the first year, we accelerated to 60,000 in 2009, to 193,000 in 2010,  and to 253,000 (and counting) so far this year.

So take a bow, folks! You, the loyal readers, have made it happen. Your readership inspires me to work on the blog each day — to scour the Internet for items that might be of interest, and to check in several times a day to moderate comments. Thank you for making the work worthwhile.
