With a few hours left in the month of August 2009, we can announce with a great deal of gratitude to all of you who have spent time with us that, for the first time in the history of the site, we have served up more than 25 million page views in a single month.
No hamsters were harmed in the achievement of those numbers.
We also obliterated the prior high-water mark for unique visitors. Last month’s 2.389 million visitors has increased to 2.735 million, and counting.
We also owe a huge “thank you very kindly” to the folks at NBC Sports, who have welcomed us with open arms and promoted the site more aggressively than we could have imagined. The relationship has been better than excellent through two months, which of course means that I soon will screw the whole thing up.
Until then, we’ll continue to enjoy the ride. We hope you’re enjoying it, too.
