Though very much an anomaly, our Everyday Citizen database was "offline" due to a weird and unrepeatable technical snafu for almost 3 weeks! We are happy to say that it's now completely fixed. We thank all of you for your patience.
Readership continues to grow at this site. Just in the last month, we had 704,238 hits (visits) - even though much of the that time, our writers were unable to post new content due to the extremely rare technical difficulties! In a normal, unfettered month, we have over 900,000 and during one recent month we even crested the million hit mark. These are, without a doubt, very respectable stats for a website of this kind. I believe it is because Everyday Citizen has high quality writers and thoughtful commenters.
And, the good news abounds! This widely acclaimed excellent citizen journalism site, founded in 1997, is fully re-tweaked, re-wired and very sturdy. Good to go for years to come. Writers can rest assured that their archives are working perfectly and are well protected with multiple backups. Our dedicated readers can now return frequently to find new content. New visitors can learn more by reading about our Directory of Writers, our Table of Contents and More About Us.
