Beaufort County NOW's Best Month to Date: December, 2015

October, 2015, was our best month in readership and November, 2015 was our best month for Unique IPs, but now that is very old news.

    This post should have been written over two weeks ago, but with all that has transpired, I have been busy of late, and I have written very little about many things, so, with most of these unwritten words still whirling around in my head, here goes. In short: 1) December, 2015 was the best month we have ever known in both readership and unique IPs, besting both October and then November respectively; 2) January roared in with a bang, and then fell dead in its tracks, as our server went down for 12 hours, and as struggled to 'right the ship', we experienced the corruption of 10 database tables, thereby losing over 700 posts, which was extremely disconcerting.

    Disconcerting is well below hyperbole, as we worked frantically to recover posts, and correct broken links within those recovered posts. And now, fortunately, we have recovered nearly 80% of those posts, and have created tools to find more as we make the time to do so. All this achieved while staying current with our contributors, and re-continuing with the development of new projects that will not only keep BCN at the forefront of readership of all online publications originating in northeastern North Carolina, but developing other leading edge marketing tools to help others showcase their wares with the best, and proprietary, internet tools that I am discovering, only we can provide locally - at least at the level of their creation.

    Continuing with the traffic brag, the single component that influenced this knowledge that December was our best month was the jump in Unique IPs over our previous best month of November, 2015, an increase of 17.12%. Unique IPs is the 'gold standard' for evaluating internet traffic.

    With words as spare as I am capable to provide, I present the table of our traffic, with a few milestones achieved in the process:

Latest Regional Business

Extending over 2.57 acres (if purchased in one block, more property offered if subdivided in purchasable building footprints), this Commercial Corner, the former John H. Small property, is now for sale, and may be sold as one tract, or sold in building footprints.
Only minutes from Greenville and Washington, we offer these unique high lots (no flood insurance) above the wide waters within the Pamlico Estuary, where one can build their dream home.
This bundle of five lots can be split to sold as a pair, or in a combination of three additional lots bringing the total to five, allowing a flexible purpose for many possibilities.
Within the plan of this project, I am offering these lots, and this tract that may be so unique that few, if any other proposed projects would even consider offering such, offering such; an experiment in community where the dreams of many may have individual success, bolstering the community.
Tract C, with frontage on the south side of Old Blounts Creek Road, this is some of the best well drained land on this "River Road" of the Southside.
Deatherage and Associates will begin the offering of 3 tracts of good ground; easily accessible, well drained land, all with water access on the Pamlico River /Chocowinity Bay, with many other commonly owned spaces projected as part of the bargain.


Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has now joined the ranks of those of us who have created moderated informational platforms that act as a hybrid publication.
I am now discovering that there is a new local political movement afoot to cast aspersions against me as a Beaufort County commissioner and as a service provider of extreme quality, even saying that my company is the "Webmaster" for the county site, which is false.
How to fit a niche is often an acquired trait as needs present themselves, especially regarding real property - the space where real people reside.


The connective property, waterfront access fronting the Pamlico River and Chocowinity Bay, inextricably linking Rice Patch Creek Preserve and Calf Creek Preserve to the waterways to the World, will support community access in a full variety of measures.
