Changes at Roosevelt Islander and Some Readership Statistics

Regular readers may have noticed some changes to the look of the Roosevelt Islander blog. I hope these changes make it a little bit easier to read, navigate and search through the blog. This is still a work in progress so please bare with me here as I try to upgrade Roosevelt Islander with more services, information and features over the coming months.

I find it amazing that what started out eight months ago with an all CAPITAL letter post of one Roosevelt Island resident's complaint concerning the RIOC policy of charging $18 to view the July 4 fireworks celebration at Southpoint Park has grown from a once in a while post to over 435 posts. Also, what I thought would be of interest to maybe a few family and friends has climbed to almost 35,000 unique Roosevelt Islander visitors, an average of approximately 185 daily, since statistics started to be kept in mid September.

People knew exactly why they were there and what they wanted. Did you tune in to TNT on Cox cable channel in Oklahoma City in time to see the performances? If you missed it, you can check out Melanie Fionas performance of O Canada here. The soundtrack to the movie debuted at No. Scientists have found that sounds from 5,000 to 8,000 hertz recharge your brain's batteries. In 2006, Josh launched his 3rd studio album, Awake, that includes guest appearances by way of the vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo and jazz pianist Herbie Hancock.
