Every year I figure our growth has got to start hitting up against some type of slowdown and every year we just keep cranking, adding multiple subscribers every single day to the feed, to the Facebook page, to the podcasts. This train is still chugging thanks to the hard/fun work of our contributors. Lets keep chugging crew!
Is GMG your first look online in the morning?

Best Team In The Business- Only Getting Better
Great work guys.
Not only do we have the best contributors, we have the best online community of positive people who just love our area to death.
Keep writing in to encourage your favorite GMG contributors to keep on creating interesting content. (Your comments are what let them know that you appreciate the effort).
Jeeze, what’s the next milestone? I remember the first day we broke 1000 views and I thought that was about the coolest thing ever. Now if we have less than 50,000 in one day I start to question where we could improve!
Monsters in this space. Absolute Monsters.

We’ve been averaging between 55,000 and 68,000 a day now.
About six months ago I think we were averaging around 48,000 a day. Now we are almost consistently doing double the number of Gloucester Residents according to the last Census (28,789)source wikipedia census data
June 20, 2011 was the first day we ever surpassed the number of Gloucester residents. Now we’re averaging double that on a consistent basis with some days bumping up against 80 and 90,000.
Yesterday’s Numbers and Top Twenty Posts-
60,000, as in 1,000 times 60
thank you for the correction Martin DelVecchio
All Time 29,506,608-Within a Couple of Weeks we should hit the 30 Million Mark
It wasn’t long ago the upper end of our daily visits were around 58,000 per day. We’ve been adding massive amounts of subscribers lately and the past couple days have brought us 66,199 and 63,771. Over double the number of every single Gloucester resident- man woman, child and transgender.
Growing like a honeymoon hard-on baby!
You know usually when the kids go back to school we get a little drop off from the heady numbers we do in June and July during our Fiesta and Horribles Parade Coverage, but we’ve been adding so many subscribers that this thing called GMG just keeps on chugging and growing so there hasn’t been any drop off. Just killing it.
Will there be a day when we do 100,000 a day consistently? I don’t know, but if you ever told me that our hyperlocal blog about our community would be doing almost double the number of Gloucester residents on a daily basis 4 years ago I would have called you crazy.
It’s funny because every time some newspaper of magazine interviews me for a piece on GMG they ask about the daily viewership and I tell them, then the magazine comes out a month or two later and the average views jump even higher. We’re a freight train baby!
In the North Shore Art Throb piece on GMG when Lou Mandarini asked me what we were doing for numbers I told him- 28,000 to 48,000 a day and that was just a month and a half ago. If he asked me today I would say 38-56,000 a day. #Boom!

Gotta be doing something right.
An old timer calls me on the phone yesterday and tells me that I really ought to watch the language I use on GMG because it would be a shame to see us lose all the great things that we’ve built up here. I’ll take it all under advisement buddy.

I guess high 40,000’s is the new norm. See y’all at Dog Bar tonight to celebrate our BONS Wins.
We also posted our 23,000th post this morning.
That’s a whole lot of G Town Love. I’d say we’ve got a pretty good catalog of Gloucester material. if there is something you want to know about a search is worthwhile in the search box in the right hand column on the Blog.
I remember the first day GMG hit 100 views in a day and how psyched I was. Then I remember 1000, then 10,000 views, then I had the number of resident’s in the City of Gloucester as a target- BLAM blew that shit out of the water. I thought that there was a finite number of people with the nature of GMG being so hyperlocal that we would be bouncing off of barriers and topping off but no way Jose. Not yet anyway, the growth just keeps coming.
It’s a freight train baby. Jump on board and join the party or get run down by the beast.
We gots a ways to go baby! Let’s Do This!!!!!!
