Yes, it's May Day. And it's Law Day. You might also say, it's The Batavian Day.
The Batavian officially launched on May 1, 2008. In our first month, 2,756 people visited the site.
In May 2009, there were 25,553 visitors. The past two months, we've topped 40,000 unique visitors each month.
And, of course, we've gone from zero to 75 local businesses sponsoring the site.
In May 2008, I was an employee of GateHouse Media and launched The Batavian for my employer. Now, Billie and I own The Batavian, LLC and I no longer work for GateHouse and Billie and I live in Batavia.
A lot can change in two years, and Billie and I (and Pachuco) love how things have turned out.
Thank you all for your support.
P.S.: It would be fun to hear in comments how you first heard about The Batavian.
