Yesterday this site reached a milestone of sorts, registering its 500,000th pageview. It took almost three years to get there, though most of that traffic came in the last few months. (If present trends continue, we’ll rack up our millionth hit sometime in late summer or early fall of this year.)

Those numbers are still small compared to the big kids of the blogosphere, but you all have allowed Student Activism to break some significant stories and draw important attention to others. You’ve also helped to popularize a new model for blogging in the field of student organizing — this beat is a lot less lonely than it was in the spring of 2008.

I’m going to be rolling out some new features for the site this week, so keep checking in. And thanks for all your support!
