Niagara Falls Blog stats update (lots of posts!)

No Comments

I mentioned back in January that I was trying to keep the blog going. It has been difficult over the last couple of years with very little development going on. I lost my Google rankings, and have less companies reaching out to me to visit their operations.

Well, as I said, I’m trying to do better. I try to post 5 times each day on weekdays. This is usually a copy of a couple of newsletters, as well as other new stores. Those stories can come from area newspapers, or things I’ve observed. In the 4 weeks right after the new year, I posted 84 out of 100 possible times. Not bad. In the 4 weeks that ended Friday, I posted 96 out of 100 possible times. Even better!

In January, the site had the most traffic its had in a couple of years, but there is still a long way to go. Please do your best to help me promote the blog. Send links to your friends, like tweets on Twitter, add me on Facebook, whatever you can do. Thanks!

How to follow Access Niagara and the Niagara Falls Blog

1 Comment

If you are following the Niagara Falls Blog regularly, you know that I have my ups and downs… sometimes the blog is very busy, and other times I don’t post anything for an extended period of time. For the last two months I’ve been posting several things every day, and I’m trying to keep it up. Hopefully you’ve found the articles referenced, photos posted, and links provided to be useful and interesting.

Although business seems to be good in the area, it seems that for the last several years things have been at a stand-still from a development point of view. Most of the changes have been renovations to existing buildings. No hotels have been built. This has made it hard to post new/different things. Many years ago when I would walk around the tourist district, I saw something changing almost every day, so it was much easier to write about.

Regardless, I’m going to try to keep this up. I hope to improve the rest of the AccessNiagara.com website as well.

There are a variety of ways that you can keep up with the blog and other activities on Access Niagara. The best way is to follow the Niagara Falls Blog. If you prefer some other forms of social media, I also have accounts on the following sites:

As a side note, I do have ads on the site to try to support the work that I do. I make very little from them, so I’m debating whether to just get rid of them. As you follow the site, you’ll get updates once I decide what to do.

I’ll be posting some more about the Winter Festival of Lights, but here’s a start. On the night that my wife and I went to Sparks Steakhouse, we went for a walk afterwards. Here are a few pictures of some of the lights. Make sure you also check out the animated gif I created of the Zimmerman Fountain that I posted to twitter.

Photo Shows Niagara Falls Bone Dry

No Comments

From Inquisitr.com:

A photo of a dry Niagara Falls has been shared on Twitter more than 750 times after it was published Monday (July 7).

The poster of the photo said it was from the year 1969 and showed a rare, completely bone dry Niagara Falls from what appeared to be an aerial view.

This picture’s worth millions

From Niagara This Week:

Tim William’s brush with notoriety started rather simple.

“I found someone with the same name on Twitter,” Williams said Tuesday. “Of course, I had to follow him.”

It turns out his namesake worked for a CBS affiliate in Pittsburgh and when the American Williams tweeted that he hadn’t seen any pictures of a nearly frozen Niagara Falls during the recent deep freeze brought on by a polar vortex earlier this month, the Niagara Falls man lept into action.

“I told him I could get one,” Williams said. “I said I live nearby.”…

He grabbed his camera and headed out, snapped a few pictures and picked one out to send to his American counterpart…

It was picked up by online outlets like the Huffington Post and at last count, had received five million hits and more than 100,000 shares on Facebook.
