A Question For The GMG FOB’s That Tune In To GMG Daily- What Brings You Back?

If you are a GMG FOB from outside of Cape Ann before you go any further please comment below the post where it says “comment” as to what brings you back daily to the blog.


This morning when I got the email from Sem Sutter who is an avid reader of GMG daily and works down in Georgetown I began to wonder what it is about GMG that brings people from outside our geographic location back over and over and has them subscribing to GMG and requesting Bumper stickers and participating in our comment sections.

I am honored that our team here has developed such a huge following all over the country and in often cases all over the world and obviously when you are pulling down 50-60,000 visitors a day in a city that has roughly 30,000 citizens there are folks from other places that are checking this thing we’ve created out. 

GMG is obviously a hyperlocal blog which mainly focuses on Cape Ann but when you look at the map of where the hits come from, our readership is global.

So I am curious as to what it is about GMG that brings you back if you’re not from here.

Did you visit one time and have fond memories?  Do you dream of moving here?  Is it the photographs?  Is it the humor and camaraderie of the GMG family?  Is it the GMG breaking news which 9 times out of 10 you will find here first? 

What is it that compels you to make GMG a daily or hourly visit?

Thank you so much for being part of our GMG community from afar and don’t forget to leave a comment letting us know what it is that brings you back.  If you don’t see the words comment directly below this post click on the title of the post and you should see it then.

I’m anxious to find out what drives you back here, thanks again,

Mendy Garron and Family Represent! In Sao Miguel, Azores

Hi Joey,
My family and I recently returned from a fabulous trip to Sao Miguel, Azores.  Attached is a picture of Jim and Odin representing near Lomba de Sao Pedro (meaning the Hill of Saint Peter), which we thought was appropriate for the Gloucester followers!  I have included a few more pictures of the beautiful scenery.  It is an absolutely amazing place!
All the best,
Mendy Garron 

Kate Lufkin Represents! In Zimbabwe

Hey Joey. We’ve met a few times, I’m Kate Lufkin, Laurie Lufkin’s sister.  Your wife also went to high school with my sister Sarah.

Anyway, I just took a trip to Zimbabwe and Mozambique to volunteer at an HIV clinic for a few weeks (but I had some fun while I was there, too!) and Laurie reminded me to bring along my sticker…So, here they are! The first one is me on the campus of Africa University (where I was based out of for teaching. I was considered faculty…wtf??) Same with the 2nd and the 3rd. The 5th and 6th are at Victoria Falls, one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen in my life…Finally the last one is on a boat cruise I took on the Zambezi river. It was pretty awesome! I saw elephants, crocs, hippos, you name it!

Feel free to use all or none of them, but I thought I’d send them along.

Thanks for your blog, I love it!

Kate
