Back in December, I asked you, my loyal readers, if you were willing to fund an expansion of the coverage I offer here at the Political Junkie. I asked for support for weekly legislative coverage and you stepped up to the plate and donated over $500 to cover the expenses. As a result, I drastically increased the output from this blog.
|Jan-March||# of Posts||Posts Per Week||Daily Avg Readers|
Counting just the posts in my Capital Beat, there were 21 new articles provided by your investment, not a bad return on what you put in, eh?
Thank you again for giving me the support necessary to take this blog to the next level. The question remains, what to do next?
There is definite interest for investigative reporting since our cash-strapped traditional media has little time or resources to work on those issues. Alternately, I could expand my “Keep It Simple, Sweeney” series, where I explain complicated political issues in simple, easy to understand terms. Or, I could just add a new beat, such as “Environment” or “Labor” to my rotation. However, I’m not sure if any of those are what you, the readers, are interested in.
Please click this poll. As always, your input is anonymous. This will give me a feel for whether people are interested in continuing to expand this blog or if I should focus my efforts around the core topic, local elections.
