A slightly different Locally Grown Northfield is emerging this spring

Grandpa Griff WigleyLoGro has mostly been dormant since early 2013 as I’ve focused on other things, mainly my blogging at Mountain Bike Geezer and CROCT (Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails).

But it’s back, with a slightly different focus.

I’ll continue to feature my photography of people, scenes, and events around Northfield. I’ll probably add more videos.

But I won’t be featuring my Northfield-related opinions related to local government (City, School District, County) as my consulting work (here and here) makes that a conflict of interest. I probably will shine a neutral light on current issues as a moderator of live web conferences with community leaders.  And I’m open to having opinionated guess bloggers.

So I’ll be experimenting. Contact me if you’ve got ideas, feedback, or an interest in contributing an issue-related guest blog post.

Follow @logronfld on Twitter and like the LoGro Facebook page as I publish all new blog posts on both. And subscribe to the weekly LoGro enewsletter, which includes all new blog posts and occasionally some extras. If you’re on Facebook and interested in my non-LoGro activities, see my personal Facebook profile.

And about those Google AdSense ads on the sidebars of the individual blog posts, Categories, and Archives?  I’m also experimenting. In the meantime, the measly revenue helps to support my local economic development activity at local pubs, coffeehouses, and bicycle shops.

So move along now. Click any of the images in the grid above to see the most recent blog posts. You can attach comments via several ways, including via your Facebook account if you’re logged in.

Locally Grown site traffic report for August, 2012: summer doldrums

LoGro Google Analytics Aug 2012

According to Google Analytics, Locally Grown’s traffic for the month of August, 2012:

  • 10,149 Unique Visitors
  • 18,278 Visits

This is a big decline from the record of 13,374 Unique Visitors in June but then there’s usually a decline in July and August when more people are vacationing, including me.

Locally Grown site traffic report for June, 2012: another all-time record for unique visitors

LoGro site traffic June 2012

According to Google Analytics, Locally Grown’s traffic for the month of June, 2012:

  • 13,374 Unique Visitors
  • 22,206 Visits
  • 36,215 Pageviews

This is the third month in a row that we’ve exceeded 13,000 unique visitors in a month, and 13,374 sets a new all-time record. That June 26 blog post gave us a big bump (heh) so it’s doubtful July will be able to match that.
