WOW what an incredible week! You managed to blast away more long standing records than I could have imagined. For that I am very grateful. I believe it was about a week ago I posted “Sad News,” where I bemoaned that I was going to have to shut down The Colorado Sound Live365 for lack of funds. A few hours later I had to retract my statements, when I learned I was under contract until March 31, 2014.
You responded by contributing $600 in two days, and in the process boosting the listenership to new highs. Two days later I began posting FAN FAVORITE POLLS for our BEST OF 2013 coming out on Dec 28, and the blog metrics blew up.
The Colorado Sound Live365 listener metrics Dec 1 – Dec 7 = 286 streams launched x 35.5 mins avg listening time = TLH (Total listening hours) 169.
IN the entire month of NOVEMBER, The Colorado Sound Live365 listener metrics = 321 streams launched x 14.2 mins avg listening time = TLH 76.
TheColoradoSound.com unique page views Dec 1 – Dec 7 = 3252.
The previous monthly unique pg views record -> May 2013 = 2227.
4 of the past 6 days could have easily been new single day pg view records, which was originally 386, set on Jan 2, 2011. I thought the 457 views on Monday Dec 2 would last at least a year .. or more. Until that was broken on Wednesday, when we logged 1300 unique pg views straight up. WOW.
At this point I have no idea where you’re taking me …but I sure am enjoying the ride.
