It was one year ago today that the Lodi Valley Chronicle published its first article.
It’s been a long road, and we have a long way to go, but we’re still walking.
As of today, the Chronicle has published 320 articles from 16 contributors (not including myself). We have had over 46,000 page views, and are averaging over 35 daily readers reading 3 articles per day. That might not sound like much, but… Did you read 21 articles in the Enterprise this week?
Thank you to everyone who has written an article. Thank you to everyone who has pointed me towards a story. And thank you to everyone who has read, liked, and shared the articles that we have written.
While the law says otherwise, I believe that the Chronicle has become “the newspaper of the Lodi Valley”.
Happy birthday, and thank you.
