Sometimes, it’s just amazing how fast time flies. This week is the one year anniversary of when I launched Westlake Revelations.

Today, we believe something like a quarter of the city or more regularly reads the emails and web site. People have read articles on the web site more than 30,000 times. Hundreds of you have sent notes, or thanked my family personally.

Overall, it’s been a good experience. And, I will continue to do it as my contribution to the community, so long as I have the time, and it’s enjoyable.

If you would take a moment, and do two things for me:

1) Think about what you like and don’t like about Westlake Revelations, and drop a line. Feedback makes things better. No idea is too crazy.

2) I have an agenda. It’s for as many people as possible to know the facts. So, take a minute and look through your address book. Tell at least 5 of your friends and neighbors about Westlake Revelations. They can subscribe at . The more people that know what’s going on, the better decisions we all can make.
