If our site’s slowness last week was deeply frustrating, its cause was very satisfying: We had outgrown some of the technology supporting the site.

Last week, you see, we posted the 500th story since we started MyVeronaNJ this past December. Five hundred stories packed with photos, videos and maps–and sometimes all three, which is a lot to load on a new Web site. At the same time, you our readers read enough pages to push us past the 100,000 pageview mark. Both were milestones we didn’t think we’d be celebrating until later this year (and in the case of the pageviews much later this year), and we’d like to thank every one of you who have taken us this far.

We’d like to say we celebrated with a bottle of champagne and a gourmet meal. Instead, we placed a call to GoDaddy, the company that makes our words, pictures and videos accessible on the Web every day, and ordered some more technology. We’ve got some big changes in store and we’re going to need it.

  1. Virginia,

    Congratulations to you and your colleagues.

    You produce a very useful and enjoyable website, whose value is enhanced by the superb quality of the writing. I started reading myveronanj just a few weeks ago, in anticipation of our move to town late next month, and I eagerly logon thoughout the day. (My wife and I have lived in Montclair for 37 years and decided it’s time to downsize. But our move to Verona will in no way be a letdown.)

    Thanks for keeping all your (present and prospective)neighbors well informed.

    Herb Lev

    P.S. Your piece analyzing the proposed school budget–and urging residents to vote in the referendum–was a gem.
