Urban Milwaukee has reached another very exciting milestone this year.

As of today, we have reached the highest annual pageview count in our 11 year history: 6,135,763! That means our various stories, photos, press releases and more have been viewed over 6 million times this year; and it’s only October. Before this new readership high, it took 12 months to reach this number of pageviews, but now we have over two months to keep growing that readership record.

Yes, we’re thrilled. And to thank our loyal and ever-growing throng of readers for their growing support, we want to offer a membership deal that is valid only through Sunday, October 27th. Beginning today and through next weekend, our readers can get $24 off the normal price of an annual Urban Milwaukee membership. That’s right, to celebrate this new record, our normal $99 annual membership fee will be steeply discounted, so you can join for just $75 for the first year.

Our readership, which was just under 160,000 monthly readers this time last year, has now grown to about 205,000 monthly readers.
