Dunno if Family Phil is pulling our leg or not, but he reports on his blog, A Family Runs Through It, that this is National Delurking Week — or the week when blurkers come out of the shadows and post a comment. My numbers tell me that many of you are out there. Above, you’ll find the visual Phil posted to tell you about it here.
Attention: Huckleberries has received word that it won’t be long until North Idaho sports prep writer extraordinaire Greg Lee is blogging. Stay tuned.
*Speaking of sports blogs, anyone who follows the local college teams should check out the SR stable of sports bloggers. Now, you’ll find Jim Meehan/Idaho Vandals revealing that an La. Tech basketballer was arrested after the game with UI here, Glen Kasses/All Cougs, All The Time discussing that tough WSU road loss at UCLA Thursday here, and Dave Trimmer/EWU Sports discussing life on the road in the Big Sky here. Good stuff.
*I haven’t talked about pageview numbers this year because, frankly, I don’t know what they are. In the second week in December, my blogmeister changed my URL to end with “hbo” instead of “nhb.” In theory, traffic was to be directed from NHB (No Holds Barred) to HBO (Huckleberries Online). So, the HBO numbers should be growing while the other shrinks. That hasn’t happened. Combined, the numbers can total over 11,000. Singularly, they’ve run in the 4500 to 6000 range this week. Bottom line? Thanx for your continue support while we sort this out.
*Marianne Love/Slight Detour report amazing progress in healing by the Bonner County family that was badly burned when a house exploded this month here.
*Sam Taylor/Vandal Sense is celebrating because he has been offered an internship with the SR after he graduates this spring … in the Coeur d’Alene office. That means the kid’ll see what life is like behind the Huckleberries Online curtain. For the rest of the story, click here.
