Coyote Gulch running on WordPress passes the half million page view milestone

Wow, sometime after midnight Coyote Gulch running on WordPress surpassed the half million page view mark. That seems like a lot of hits but I’m sure that there are those for which 500,000 hits would be a slow day.

Colorado water issues will never draw the crowd that other subjects do but I’m content with that.

Coyote Gulch is a labor of love. I started out covering politics, getting a bit of recognition for my coverage of the Denver municipal election in 2003. After that came Governor Owens’ Referendum A (a political reaction to the shock of the 2002 statewide drought) in the fall of 2003. The referendum failed in all 54 counties in Colorado but launched Coyote Gulch as a water issues blog. Thank you Governor Owens.

The original Coyote Gulch ran on software from a now defunct company named Userland Software. The archives are still available at http://radio-weblogs.com/0101170/.

I moved Coyote Gulch to WordPress in February of 2009 after experiencing publishing problems with the old software. WordPress is great — Open Source — software. I’m continually amazed at the versatility and ease of use.

Thank you to all of you that bother to give me a read now and again. In keeping with the times you can follow Coyote Gulch on Twitter (@coyotegulch), Facebook and Linkedin.
