The living room/kitchenette is dark except for a light over the stove against the wall. I’m sitting at my workstation tapping these words into this post as I listen to the Pittsburgh Pirates playing the Atlanta Braves on the radio. It’s the bottom of the sixth inning and the Pirates are losing two to nothing. The game is on 93.7 FM The Fan and the talk on The Fan is whether or not the Pirates are in a collapse because the team has now lost seven games in a row.
I use to be a very dedicated Steelers, Pirates and University of Pittsburgh Panthers sports fan; but now that I’m older, sports don’t seem that important anymore. Now sports are just another form of mild entertainment. I’m more invested in karaoke.
And I’m an online publisher. I think about this magazine all the time.
For the month of August this publication is averaging 72 page views every day. To me, 72 page views a day means my little magazine is still a hobby. But every month the page views have increased since the magazine was changed from a dot-com to a dot-net. As a dot-net the magazine is only about one year old.
And I don’t know of any other publication on the Internet like this magazine. So it’s got originality going for it. Still I feel that an average of at least 100 page views every day by the end of the year would mean that the magazine is heading in the right direction.
Let me encourage you to become a regular reader of the PittsburghFlashFiction. I think something unique is going on here and you don’t won’t to be left out of the mix.
