Goatriders of the Apocalypse

The GROTA army grows stronger

Not a whole lot going on today at least on my end.  However, because I like to, I thought I'd mention the continuing trend we've had of increased readership.

Although there's almost an entire week remaining in January, GROTA has already surpassed our total hit count for the month of December, which if you remember surpassed our total hit count for the month of November.  In fact, it looks as if we will have more total hits this month than we did in October which was when we'd shattered our previous record.

To me that is astonishing.  It's January.  There's no baseball.  There have only been a couple of blips of interest.  And yet our readers surpass our previous best.  Even better - we've already more than doubled the total hits we had 12 months ago, and if you guys keep coming between now and next Saturday, we've got an outside chance of tripling our readership totals from last year.

As always, I can only thank you all for being loyal and contributing great articles and arguments.  I'm not so arrogant as to think that any of this happens because of me.  It is all the readers who make this place a growing community, and I am looking forward to what is to come.

That's great!

How many Riders are there now?

new to the blog

I found this site a few days ago and I can easily say this is my new favorite Cubs blog.

Kudos.
