Happy Birthday To Us!
Since that first post, we've made great strides to bring the story of Maysville Kentucky to both Maysvillians and those elsewhere in the world. Just this week for example, we received this email from Sgt. Travis Welsh, a soldier stationed in Iraq:
I'm over here in Iraq and I had some down time so I was looking up Maysville on the net. I was just trying to get a taste of back home and stumbled onto your site. This is a great site, I had no idea anything like this even existed. I haven't got to look at the whole sight yet but, I've got nothing but time over here.
We've had many readers come through, some dropping comments on the blog, and other sending in emails, saying that they once lived in Maysville but live somewhere else now. For them, the Maysville Kentucky Blog brings back memories. Others who have never lived in Maysville but are planning a trip here comment that they now have a list of sights to see and things to do.
It helps that we're out there on the web actively shedding a spotlight on Maysville. In the past year we've been syndicated to some of the other sites in town (by the way, if you're a site owner and want to display a list of our articles, send me an email). We've also been syndicated to national news aggregation sites like Topix.net among others. We're everywhere! : ) Well, not really, but we are making the effort and you get the idea.
Now, here's the best part... it's all for you dear Reader! That's right, without readers like yourself, a blog is pretty pointless. So tell your friends, tell your neighbors, and let's have a party! We're one year old and it's time to celebrate... Whoo Hoo!
