February has been a busy month ! I've had approximately 79, 029 page views--10,000 more than January's totals. I have no doubt that the increase had to do with Black History Month celebrations in the US, but I will always welcome new readers no matter how they find the site.

With the changes that I made to the template, I have not been able to link to the archives and some of the posts that I enjoyed writing, but don't seem to be as popular as I thought they would have been. But it seems as if readers are landing on the referenced landing page and then, finding other pages by clicking on the labels or following the links under "You May Also Like."
Ah, well. Enjoy!
