Readership Stats 'Go Off the Charts'
for as Yet Unknown Reason


EDITORIAL
Up until this past Monday, the lower bars of the Readership Chart (above) from the Stat Service that I have had since 2010 and which is usually pretty much uneventful. Google, owner of Blogspot, has become a little more aggressive in 2020. They have been urging me to seek a wider readership through advertising and were seeking permission to get me started on it. Simply put, I am not seeking to expand the readership of the Silver Lake Daily Newsletter.

The wintertime average readership falls between 30 and 50 each day and the summertime season is between 60 and 75, generally speaking. Apparently, Google still has a record of some of my previous websites that were involved in broader interest categories and it was not unusual back then to have between 1,500 and 3,100 daily readers. But larger readership usually means considerably more work which I also am not seeking.

I am happy promoting Silver Lake, the SLA, the SLI, the SLE and other various groups and businesses having relationship to the Lake. 

As long as new readers can accept the parameters and limitations of the Newsletter, they are more than welcome to read about who we are and what we do--especially the events we have open to the public such as the Golf Tournament for Clean Water, the Memorial Boat Parade, the guest speakers and programs of the S/L Association. Or the Biennial 4-Day S/L Experience including displays, classes, discussions, audio-visuals,t workshops, food and musical entertainment sponsored by Asbury Retreat Center and the S/L Institute; or the S/L Institute's Friday night Concerts--to mention just a few.

It will be interesting to see if the readership continues to expand or if it will resume its regular trends. I don't mind, as long as I don't get billed from Google!
