Just dropping a quick note to share our latest success story with you.
We crunched the numbers this morning for our site traffic in June. As Bill would say, it was tremendous.
ChicagoNow had 702,000 pageviews in June. Of those, 342,000 (49 %) were local pageviews. The site also had 348,000 visitors in June, with 147,000 (42 %) visitors from Illinois.
We’re stoked about this, especially considering we’ve yet to market the site beyond Twitter and Facebook. The community managers and I want to thank our bloggers for their hard work and thank their readers for the suppport. We’re big fans of them and glad you are too.
We’re also fans of our developer, Byrne Reese, who has a skills set we knew nothing about. Last week, Byrne single-handedly delivered his daughter in the backseat of his car.
For the complete story, check out Byrne’s recount of her birth on his own blog. Congratulations to Byrne and Arin–Daisy is beautiful and we’re all so happy for you.
