in it’s first three full months of operation has witnessed expansive growth in readership.

As of today, milestones reached by the blog include the preservation of nearly 1,100 archived stories, which have received some 740 comments.

In February, the 40,000 hit per/day barrier was achieved.

Geographic locations routinely hitting for information, while centered in California’s Inland Empire, span not only the United States, but Canada, Europe, the Middle East, South America and Asia.

The African continent shows up on occasion.

Even deployed military personnel read the blog.

Who would have ever have thought?

I guess one could figure that a blog focusing on political and governmental information surrounding the largest geographical county in the forty-eight contiguous states, and within a state as dysfunctional and insolvent as California, would most likely attract attention.

Our readers span governmental jurisdictions and agencies from California to Washington, D.C.; financial institutions on the east coast; The U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives; and everyday folks with a particular focus.

People are definitely interested and want to be informed.
