We’ll readily admit that it’s been a slow year for content, especially the second half of the year.
Not to make excuses, but it’s partly because Corey Friedman and William R. Toler have been keeping busy working at the Richmond County Daily Journal in Rockingham, N.C., and it’s hard to come home and write when that’s what you do all day.
Nevertheless, stories on issues we find important have been posted, albeit, sporadically. As a result, readership has dropped.
Despite that, this sparsely read blog has seen several posts over the past year reach more than 1,000 hits, which to us is quite an achievement.
The most read story from this year was about now-former Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown and how several blunders in his department could cost him his tin star. We can’t say if the things we wrote about had anything to do with it, but the long-term lawman was defeated several months later in the primary.
