A Milestone - Now More Than 11,000 Articles on

What is PG? By DON WINNER for - The article published today about the new bridge that will eventually be built over the Panama Canal near Colon was article number 11,000 on this website. Let's see, where did I put that box of funny hats and noise makers? We are now in our sixth year of providing news and information to the ever expanding community of English speaking expatriates in the Republic of Panama - we just keep piling it on higher and deeper - and after awhile they start to add up. People will come up to me and often start off conversations with stuff like "remember that time you wrote that thing about that guy..." Well, kinda. It never ceases to amaze me how sometimes people can remember even the smallest little details of articles I've written and published, sometimes years ago. Our readers tend to "stick" to the website like glue once they find us and I like to think that we pick up and add new loyal readers, one at a time. We are now getting about 100,000 unique visitors per month, and our traffic levels continue to increase, year on year, ignoring the little short-term fluctuations. Strategically speaking, we have been growing about 30% per year or more since our launch on 27 August 2004. And of course, thank you all for coming back, time and time again. We're #1 thanks to you.

By way of reference, the cake in the picture was to celebrate the 11,000th dive of the USS Dogfish near Nassau in the Bahamas. Their accomplishment was much more important and harder to achieve than mine - but they did just happened to have the right number on the cake. In any case, cheers...
