MonticelloLive Celebrates 2nd Birthday Under BurgessOctober 13th, 2009 by Joe Burgess
MonticelloLive.com is celebrating it’s 2nd birthday this week, since business operations and reporting duties were taken over by Joe Burgess (“the MonticelloLive guy”) back in October, 2007.
Readership has grown constantly over the 2 year period, as shown by the 1.6 million pageviews that the site has received over in the past year.
While another website keeps posting impressive numbers, MonticelloLive makes it possible for readers to view our actual daily pageviews totals. Just click on the black, white, & orange One Stat.com logo at the bottom left of MonticelloLive newspages.
MonticelloLive is designed to be “User Friendly”, we don’t make you play “hide & seek” to find stories. All new news stories at that the top of the front page.
When you click on the MonticelloLive icon on your desktop screen, it doesn’t take you to a roadmap of the website, you’re immediately taken to the most recent news items posted that day. I’ts that simple. If you want to see school lunch menus, obituaries, yard sales, or the classifieds, they’re just one click away, at the top of the page.
News and events may be submitted to MonticelloLive by sending an e-mail to joe@MonticelloLive.com.
And if you around town and see a big guy in a MonticelloLive.com shirt, that’s probably Joe. You many want to slow down, because there may be a car wreck, fire, or other event nearby that would be better to read about, than be a part of.
If there are no flashing lights around, just stop and say “hi”. Joe’s usually a friendly fellow, who likes to hear what folks think about Monticello.
Finally, say “Happy Anniversary” to the sponsors that make our time together each morning possible.
