In case you have ever asked yourself, “Am I the only one who reads this stuff on Borderstan.com?” the answer is, “No.” The average number of views or hits per day is around 100. For a small, new blog that focuses on a limited geographic area with a very specific focus, I would say this is “not bad.”

Remember that the primary purpose of Borderstan.com is disseminate public safety information to Borderstanians. Our secondary purpose is to provide neighbors with information about their community. Finally, we also aim to amuse and entertain from time to time (it’s also a good way to get you to read the public safety info).
