After being in existance for a bit over a month, I'm pleased to anounce that, despite the grumbing from anonymites, The Inside Dope is doing quite well. Traffic to the site has steadily increased and is now pushing an average of 200 individual visitors daily. Thanks to all.
Judging from the snarky comments from some, apparently they've made an assumption that this blog was run by someone who worked at the statehouse or something. They seem to expect me to know everything before it happens, as if I'm the nerve center of Illinois government.
I don't make any money here, I'm not a reporter, I don't have a staff, and I can't see every story from every source on every subject. I've never held this blog out as anything other than what it states in the header and in the F.A.Q., so why they make this assumption, I'm not sure. I'm sorry I don't meet their expectations, but thankfully, there are hundreds more that apparently find the site to be of interest.
As always, I encourage e-mail on how you feel the site could be improved or what you'd like to see here, as well as what you enjoy.
