Another year has passed and we are inching closer to CricketMX's sixth anniversary! It is hard to believe that when this website started George Bush was still in his first term as president, Friends was still airing on NBC and Robert Harvey was still a long way from retirement.

Since this time last year I've been pleased with the growth of the articles section, which was initially launched in January 2008. In 2009 (so far) there have been a total of 36,145 article views including 13,098 from off site referrals (Google, other forums, etc).

One of the highlights of the year in terms of articles was something I actually discovered this morning. In the referrals was http://www.onemovementmusic.com.au/testimonials - it turned out that the manager of the artist I wrote about in the Tata Young performance at the One Movement festival in Perth article included a link to CMX in his festival testimonial! :D

That particular article was also one of the most viewed articles of the year, and I'm sure it broke some site of record on the night it was posted. I have never seen an article race to 100 views so quickly. The corresponding YouTube videos didn't do too badly either, with over 3000 views for each of them. Like last year, I want to thank the members of http://www.tatayoungworld.com/ for making that possible.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year. Here's to another exciting decade of CricketMX.com! Thanks to all of our loyal members for making this decade possible :)
