Site News

Injustice In Seattle has hit a couple milestones this month... but might have to cut back soon...

First, October marks the first anniversary of this site and I would really like to thank all the people who made that possible... Mainly that would be you, the readers and supporters who have spread the word about the site in places I never would have thought that we would be talked about. Thank you all for sticking with us and for visiting, sincerely.

Second, we've had over 10,000 visits since we started a year ago, a milestone we hit and passed this month actually. Sure, that's not much when compared to other sites, but I think it's great given we're only a year old and for the type of content that we put out.

Visits Trends for our first year

As you can see, the trending looks pretty good for our first year, thanks to everyone who has told others about us. But that's not all, some of you like what you've read here so much that you've subscribed to our feeds...
Subscriber Trends for first year

Thank you for reading our site from a feed reader as well, it means a lot that you're interested enough to keep informed whenever we publish new content!

What's really astounded me for this first year are the number of readers we've had in syndication:

Our articles that have appeared in news sites have been viewed nearly 500,000 times, that's amazing isn't it?

Again, thank you all for showing me that the issues I talk about here have an audience and it's encouraging to know that some of the information we have available here has helped people find the resources they need to get help, hopefully it makes a difference.

But, unfortunately, as you may have noticed, I'm not posting nearly as much as I used to lately. We used to average about a post a day but have fallen back a bit and it's likely to stay that way for a while. My wife has bravely suffered through a chronic health issue for quite some time but recently it became much worse and it's starting to look like she'll need surgery. We knew it would happen eventually, a day would come when we couldn't hold it off for any longer, but now that day is fast approaching.

Since I only work contract (no insurance), because we're still in debt from when I was a victim of misconduct, and because she hasn't been able to work for quite some time it looks like I'll have to find a third job in order to get her the treatment she needs. Of course, I'm not telling you readers this to get donations, in fact I'll refuse any that are offered because I don't want to hurt what this site is meant to accomplish by giving anyone the impression that I'm trying to profit off of those who suffer misconduct. That's why I don't use advertisement here in case you ever wondered.

But I do want people to know that if you don't see a new post for a few days or weeks, that it's not because I've given up on these issues or don't care about victims of misconduct anymore, but it's because I might not have much time to devote to this site in the near future because of the additional work I must do and the need for me to do more at home to care for my wife and children as well. My family is everything to me, so hopefully you, the reader, will understand.

...and hopefully you will see me write about much better news in the coming year as well, and perhaps one day I won't have to write anything at all.

Thank you for staying with us, and I wish everyone all the best.
