November continued our remarkable year of growth and transformation. Reviewing novels has entered our pages and will remain a staple going forward as we continue our expansion into a journal fully committed to arts and culture. In the previous month, October, VOEGELIVNIEW exceeded 40,000 readers in a monthly period for the first time in its history. This month, we exceeded 45,000 readers and achieved our best month for total readership, nearly doubling our readership levels from November of last year and continuing our readership growth (our five best months of readership have all occurred this year). We continue to make great strides in readership growth and new networking partnerships which enhances our clout and visibility to others.
The commitment of our writers to bring our readers the best of intellectual and cultural consideration must be acknowledged as an important contributing factor in this growth. While I am sure most, if not all, contributors know that their writings are greatly appreciated by readers, it is necessary from time to time for them to hear that from the editor. Your contributions have allowed me to embark on a campaign of aggressive readership growth, social media marketing, journal reorientation, and other internal changes that will help ensure our longevity and prominence heading into the future.
Without further ado, here are some of our most-read essays along with all our book reviews and poems published this month, as well as Lee Trepanier’s semester education reflections.
