Dupont – Logan – U Street

Offline for the Weekend; New Look Coming Monday


Borderstan.com will be offline starting Friday morning, May 14, and back online Monday morning, May 17. We will return with a new design and look. However, our focus is not changing: we will continue to cover the Dupont-Logan-U Street area.

Borderstan’s new design will make it easier for you to find and read posts in six categories: News, Arts & Entertainment, Marketplace, Food & Drink, Crime, and Politics & Government.

While Borderstan.com is offline, you can check the Borderstan Facebook Page for updates. See you Monday.

Is anyone else besides you reading this stuff at Borderstan.com? In other words, “Are you a loser for visiting this blog?” Of course not! Borderstan.com is a tiny little blog in the land of the blogosphere, just as Borderstan is a tiny little autonomous region of Dupont-Logan.

    But, you are not alone in your visits to Borderstan.com. In March, we had 13,466 visitors, an average of 434 per day during the month.

    We thank you!

    “Am I the Only One Who Reads this Stuff?”

    In case you have ever asked yourself, “Am I the only one who reads this stuff on Borderstan.com?” the answer is, “No.” The average number of views or hits per day is around 100. For a small, new blog that focuses on a limited geographic area with a very specific focus, I would say this is “not bad.” 

    Remember that the primary purpose of Borderstan.com is disseminate public safety information to Borderstanians. Our secondary purpose is to provide neighbors with information about their community. Finally, we also aim to amuse and entertain from time to time (it’s also a good way to get you to read the public safety info).
