Quick note of thanks
One of our goals since we began what we deemed “the experiment” is to go out and ask people fair questions and do some real interviewing on the issues with people who are involved in the process of governing or similarly involved in the town we love. When the election season came, candidates thanked us for allowing various voices to be heard, sometimes more than once. (Well if you put yourself on the line, shouldn’t we at least listen?)
It didn’t take long to find out we had hit pay dirt when our earlier work started gaining a lot more attention than we ever anticipated. Questions in the summer quickly followed, will you do more? Well here we are after the election and still at it. Why? Because frankly, you guys keep coming back and seem to dig it. Readership continues to grow even after the election which also has come as quite a pleasant surprise.
Well please tell a few friends about Mile Square View aka the Hoboken Horse and also let us know what’s on your want to see for our to do list. Clearly there’s a need to have a user friendly, intelligent, censor free place for ideas and fair discourse. You know like a good dinner party conversation or a community. And the numbers keep bearing it out. At any given point, half if not more of the readers are returning visitors. That’s a pretty good number with a third spending almost an hour plus in a visit.
