Dear Community,

This year was a banner year for 540Blog. Our content grew exponentially and so did our audience. We brought on our very first blog contributor and featured a bevvy of guest contributors from the Rochester community for much of the year. The blog has been blessed with amazing international readers and supporters that kept the website vibrant via Facebook and Instagram activity. A key part of 540WMain’s mission has always been to provide relevant, thought-provoking, and engaging digital content that would reach a worldwide audience and based on the engagement we are reaching this mission with each blog post.

The Stats

540Blog was viewed 54,527 times in 2019 

These views came from 28,417 people from all over the world (but mostly from the United States) 

540Blog content is reaching people from over 60 countries

It is so surreal to know that our content is reaching a global audience andseen in countries as close as Canada and as far away as Tanzania! I am excited for all the growth that is planned for 540Blog as we Scale Up in 2020.

So without further adieu… The Top 10 Most Viewed Blog Posts of 2018
