Look What Happened in 2017!
In 2017 we had over 780,261 views and visits from 135 countries who read about Lanark County (and now Quebec Eastern Townships) history.
Facebook brought in the most hits, next it was various search engines I use and then Twitter coming in second and third respectively. The top countries reading our local stories are: Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, India and Australia– and Brazil coming up strong this year.
Here is the deal- I can’t do this alone– no one can–it is only through sharing stories and commenting that we make history come alive! So thank you for helping get the word out about Lanark County. Now let’s keep spreading the word– we can do this!
