The blog now has over 300 visitors a day right now with about 500 daily page views. There are over 1,000 incoming links over the past year. I have never met many of you, nor have I had a chance to say 'asante sana' in person or via email. I hope you know how much I appreciate the good vibrations that you send each and every time that you visit our Electronic Village.
There are over 200 of you that subscribe to our blog. I hope to increase that number to over 500 by mid-year. If you like the flow of our blog ... then I encourage you to take a moment to subscribe to the Electronic Village.
I am no different than the other 960+ bloggers of African descent. I simply write on topics that interest me and it is serendipity when the world shows up. My favorite topics over these 500 posts have been about politics, Obama and criminal justice.
