I continue in amazement at my readers' ability to increase the scope and influence of this blog. I had no idea, back in August, that in switching from years of go-nowhere political blogging to something I was more passionate about would be such a positive move. See for yourself. I. Am. Delighted.
Yet another record breaker, with nearly 40k visits and just shy of 70k page views. There's no doubt in my mind that even though I work pretty hard at this, I'm only one guy, and growth comes from you introducing Free the Animal to friends, family and acquaintances.
I am in your debt, but I'll also beg of you to continue the introductions, if you like what you read here.
I'm going to forego the top posts and top referrers for this one month to give you a bit of a preview as to what's coming.
I think it was back in August or September when I floated the proposition of making a business proposition out of this whole thing. Relax. The blog will never change: free and open, and that's my sincere promise to you.
On the other hand, I have a number of things calling my attention. My primary business. A startup, along with the many recent meetings with venture capitalists in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and, of course, on Sand Hill Rd. — VC capital of the world. I also have a small real estate development in which I'm the principal investor and the managing partner. That has been delayed for obvious R/E market reasons, but ground breaking is anticipated within months.
The bottom line is that I'm most passionate about this, in the long term.
In the next few days I will be outlining my plan for World paleo Domination with you.
