A community of 604,000

I don't know about blog reading, but I can let you know that online reading hit heights in March here on

Unique visitors topped 600,000, one of the highest totals in recent years. In all, 604,000 different readers visited us online.

What fueled March's high number? No doubt the trial and the Penn State wrestling success.

Readers flocked to the Web site for multiple daily updates in the trial of Mirinda Boob and Ronald Heichel, and wrestling fans around the nation were captured by the success of Cael Sanderson's team in winning the Big Ten and then the national title.

Those two story lines, covered aggressively by our staff, certainly fueled online visits.
