Those were our best-ever stats for visits and pageviews.

Another tidbit: we’re now #6 when searching Google for the word ‘logrono.’


  1. I want a cut of the cash from every ‘LoGroNo’ Google hit…

    Seriously, other people have to pay when they visit your site, right? It’s not just me?

    When do I have to renew my per-use contract, by the way?

    Is it still month-to-month?

  3. I’ll take credit for some of those, but not all!

    Ross, no, it’s a town in Spain called Logrono that we’re competing with.

    Brendon, no worries, your per-use LoGroNo fee is automatically deducted each month from your PayPal account. No renewal is necessary.

    Just a reminder, tho: you can upgrade to our LoGroNo Pro service at any time for a nominal increase. It provides a bozo filter on all our content.

  5. No, Griff, there is no competition with Spain because the city in Spain is spelled Logroño with the tilde over the n (as in “mañana” and the weather phenomenon known as “El Niño”). So you are the one and only Logrono.
    I was interested to see that Logroño was the seat of the Inquisition in Spain in 1609-10 and also that its economy now is reliant on the Rioja wine trade.
    Its population in 2006 was 147,036. Para los latinos, Logroño es un municipio situado en el norte de España.

    Thanks for that, Susan. Now give a call to Mr. and Mrs. Google so that their search engine knows the difference!

  7. Griff,

    Upgrade me to LoGroNoProNoBoZo service. But take my subscription fee out of the cash you earn for every Google hit on the term “LoGroNo”…


    I do realize that LoGroNoProNoBoZo will probably filter out all of my comments.

    C’est la vie.
