Simply, Thanks....and some music.

Just a quick note of appreciation for anyone who has ever visited this site.

June was the biggest month ever in terms of site visits & pageviews.

It was also the best month in terms of return visitors.

Say this site was a restaurant.....returning customers are what every business covets, and last month, 54% of my readers were return customers. This number was 30% just a few months ago. I like to think the article in Orrviews and the new (and terrific) exposure on Facebook had a lot to do with the influx of new visitors, as well as the huge jump in return visitors.

This means the world to me, and is very vindicating. I wasn't sure how this would work, but I'm very pleased with how it's gone so far. I can only say thank you.

One new wrinkle mentioned above, is the exposure on Facebook. Click the facebook logo at the top of the page and become a fan. Just a simple group so far, not sure what I want it to be, if anything, but feel free to participate there if you prefer. The site feed is updated every time I post something new here, so you won't miss anything.

We're less than a month away from the start of practice, and exactly one month away from our first scrimmage at Minerva (Aug. 15th, I think.). Rest assured that I'll be here to cover every inch of the 2009 season.

Here's something for your listening pleasure.

Who's ready for football?

My dad was the band director at OHS from 1959-1965. Even though I was very young at the time I clearly remember 'marching' in behind the band at the start of games. And though I haven't lived in Orrville for 44 years I still follow the weekly football scores. Go Riders

There's a lot of us that want to say thanks to YOU, Mr. Snyder!

I haven't been an Orrville student since 1984 and haven't been living in Orrville since 1987. But reading your football coverage (especially of the pasy playoff teams) brings back great memories of going to the Rider games on Friday nights and sitting in the bleachers or playing a pickup game of football out by the parking lot during the game.

I look forward to your coverage this season.
