It’s that time of year again, the mid point, six months into a new year here in Woodyboaterville. I know, this is not a story about a wood boat.. It’s about us, us as a community. And what you all have helped do over the past 3 years or so. We here have always tried our hardest to be honest fun, and positive. Oh , trust me, behind the scenes we hear it all. Like living in a beautiful home, but every now and then having to clean the backed up toilets.. Texx and i spend a great deal of time.. to much time roaming around the country and surfing the net trying to find cool stuff to report on daily. We call it Attention Deficit Reporting, ADR. Oh look a Red and White! It’s what ever is in front of us at the time…Yea there are some fun stories that we take our time on.. OK Texx does, I just see it and report it. Its a nice blend. And fun as hell. But Texx and I agree, that the best part is you, the readers, the Blue shirts, yellow shirts, Anonymous, Pat, Paul, John, John….. Woody Gal, Chad, Kim and John, John and john from va…. Crazy legs Al Benton, Bill, Don, Brian, Jim, Al Shcinnnnnnnier, Ken, Dennis, Lou, Joel, Chris Carla, Jim Nelson, Seth, Oh god, here I go, Romper room style, I see, little Scott…. And Peter, Dale Kocian, Mike Mayer, Mike Green, Jim Scott… Don D. Pfswiley, Chris Smith… Rick who is always there in the AM to start off the comments. Thanks for that. The two Don P’s. The Smith Mountain Lake Gang… That Lyman guy… All of Michigan, Florida, California, NY, Illinoise, New England, Washington State….. OK Wait.this is getting silly.. I am forgetting someone I am sure. It’s kinda getting a tad outa my control. I want to know all the readers. We like that. It’s a big boat house party thing..
Here is whats happened.. And the start of a dilema. We started the year with a bold projection. 500,000 pageveiws by end of year. Seemed like a honest and sincere forecast.. We are not a multipage web site. Ya get here and snack. No deep diving like the Chris Craft Antique Boat club site.. Dear god! Our sponsors signed up in one day. And we went to work.. OK it’s not work, but we kept tweaking and adjusting with your help and input. THIS IS YOUR SITE. And your input has changed some things.. We have tried to design the site around your needs, your suggestions and hopefully bring you cool fun stuff you may not be thinking about. And, thats mostly brought to us by you. Don will send a stoy idea and bam, its meatballed together and out there. No ink to waste here.. We get a lead on some boats that are in a barn, and its a 5 alarm fire drill…. Wooohooo, were gonna get bitten by some spiders today!
Any way, we started by saying our goal was a bold 500,000 pageveiws this year… we hit 500,000 page views several months ago.. And are on track for darn close to 3 million pageveiws by end of year. Yes.. We mention a hotel, it books up in a day, Woody Boater is now in many cases the number one organic click source for many of the companies that embrace our lifestyle. We have readers all over the world and are in operation 24/7 reporting and embracing this comunity that we love and what to see grow. And thanks to you. We are growing beyond our wildest dreams. Heck, we even now have our own official language. Woodyboaterease. So, a big thanks go out to you.. From the bottom of our bilges.. Matt & Texx
