Three ways to get an announcement posted on Locally Grown

Got something to announce to the 500-1,000 people per day who visit Locally Grown?  Read on.

While we’re primarily an issues-oriented blog, we also keep connected to the Northfield community by blogging about area people, events, organizations, and businesses.

So if you have something of interest to announce, consider these options:

  • Suzannah CierniaArrange for a photo opp
    People who are willing to show up at one of my offices (tables at area coffeehouses) and have their photo taken can usually get me to blog their announcement for free. See examples here, here, and here and then contact me.
  • Become a member of Locally Grown

LoGro’s April web traffic surpasses all-time high by wide margin: 12,000 unique visitors

Logro traffic April 2011

According to Google Analytics, Locally Grown’s traffic for the month of April, 2011:

  • 12,081 Visitors
  • 22,787 Visits
  • 39,891 Pageviews

I was surprised when we nudged up to 10,000 unique visitors in March, as we’ve hovered between 8-9,000 for many months.  So it was quite nice to see the jump to 12,000.

Locally Grown now no longer accepting text and banner ads

lg-ad-placement-screenshot-bubbles-800w-84x150 After considerable weeping and gnashing of teeth about the types of ads to offer here on LG, we’ve settled on offering a combination of text and banner ads for both businesses and non-profits. (Ad auctions and advertorials have been shelved for now.) See the revised LG advertising page for details or jump right to the ad purchase page.  Four one-month slots sold yesterday: Knecht’s Nurseries and Landscaping, Contented Cow, Chapati, and the Always Family Center. (Thank you, Deb, Norman and Carl!)  Now, how can we improve the offering?
