364 Days Later and More than 30,530 Page Views: Thank You All for Following RSO Legislation, News and Action Items!

On July 1st 2013 this blog began with a post that summarized 5 years of advocacy.  

364 days and 257 posts later I want to take a minute and thank you all. 

I try to be the voice of reason for those listed on the Virginia Sex Offender Registry, their spouses, their parents, their siblings, their significant others, their roommates and their children when new and harsher laws and restrictions are being considered and passed against those labeled “Sex Offender”. 

If anyone had  told me in 2006  that I’d become a full-time volunteer advocate for a cause that is so polarizing and insights such hate, fear and anger from the public like that of Sex Offenders and the Registry, I would have told them they had lost their mind.  

You never know where life may take you but you are the one that decides how to use that knowledge and experience you’ve gained and move forward.

Some might say 30,500+ page views in 12 months (2,541 per month) is not really that impressive. Well, I’m pleased knowing that this blog has become a resource for so many people looking for information. We’ve picked up new followers/readers everyday and returning readers check back weekly and monthly. 

This blog has received hits from all over the globe, even though its main goal is to keep Virginians up to date on RSO issues. 

Even with the Feedburner email-subscribers routinely missing out on new posts because it works less than 25% of the time, seriously less than 25% (7 weeks off, 3 weeks on, then off again). Hopefully one day Feedburner will fix this issue.  

Thank you all for following this blog and for those of you who’ve emailed me in the last year, I don’t do this work for myself......... I do it for you and your family.
