Welcome 1,000,000th Visitor!
We’re pleased to announce that WashingtonWatch.com has had one million visitors so far this year.
The site is on pace to easily double the number of visitors from last year, after growth of 350% in 2007. (Hey it’s easy to grow from the really low numbers in 2006.)
With the introduction of the WashingtonWatch.com blog in July this year, we’re doing even more to bring the workings of Congress home to the American people.
The blog provides a little Washington-insider perspective, ties the news of the day to Congress’ action, reveals the human stories behind the bills that get introduced, and throws around a little attitude.
We’re working hard – and succeeding – at building an active and aware, Web-enabled citizenry. That’s you! Thanks for reading, and for visiting the site.
We’ll develop more statistical information at the end of the year. And in 2009, we’ll roll out some fantastic new features that will make the site more useful, more fun, and more heavily trafficked than ever.
For now, welcome visitor number 1,000,000!
