Happy Birthday! Whose birthday is it you ask? CanMag.Com's
of course! We have finally reached our first year of existence and have
to admit that we have gotten A LOT farther than predicted... at least for
the first year. It took about 2,000 articles, 173 movies, 652 trailers,
3 different site designs and tons of bloodshed to make this year possible.
However, we couldn't have done it without you, the readers.
CanMag.Com turns one year-old on September 16th, 2005. Soon we'll be walking!
CanMag.Com- Year 1
First off, I'd like to thank Kelly “Bubba”
Craner [bubba at canmag dot com], Vince Palomarez [vince at canmag dot com]and
Beth Rodio [beth at canmag dot com] for continuing to write terrific articles
for CanMag.Com with each finding their own niche. Beth Rodio began her career
with us by pissing off The Simpsons fans with her article Should
The Simpsons Just Stop?. But what can we say, hate mail
is better than no mail. Kelly “Bubba” Craner has been with the
site the longest and has offered articles based on technology, music and
movie reviews. This guy has a thing for the classics, so throw him an email
if you wish to chat. Vince Palomarez has left his mark with entertaining
movie reviews and now our weekly Box Office Report. Vince attempts to predict
next weeks box office, usually with poor results. If you don't agree, throw
him an email and debate his numbers.
You can check out all of us at Meet the Staff.
Now, let's check out the numbers for year one of CanMag.Com.
Below is a table that compares the expected numbers
I thought CanMag.Com to get in its opening year against the actual. Thank
God and you readers that there is a difference!
Obviously, most this traffic has come in the last
four to five months. Thanks for your support!
