Happy Birthday (to us) !!


Hard to believe, but it’s been one year since went “live”. Since that time, we have posted 1,145 stories and have 401 comments, 11 videos and nearly 500 pieces of spam on our main site and get several spam e-mails every day. We have had well over 1,000 e-mail items to deal with as well. We have about 50 advertisers, some with multiple ads. The site has become “quite complex” according to our technical assistant Josh Dennis from Midstate Marketing. We had one hacking attempt.

Our 6 editors come from a variety of backgrounds. We attempt to be apolitical, or at least “fair and balanced”. Stories come from viewers, various town organizations and our faithful reporter Meghan Bowden. We would like to thank the Haddam Civic League for making HaddamNow possible. We are indebted to our advertisers and our advertising manager Craig Salonia for getting us up off the ground and sticking with us.

We have a core group of 500-600 viewers unless something really newsworthy happens, like accidents, fires, crimes, awards, significant athletic accomplishments, voting session results, contest results, etc. Our peak page views were over 2,000 on several occasions. So a special thanks to all of our viewer; send us your articles, comments and/or photos.
