WELCOME TO THE 2009 ANNUAL TRAFFIC REPORT
Hi, everyone. This is Doug with the Annual Traffic Report for 2009 . Below the summary data for this year. I have included the corresponding data for last year, if it is available.

Well, not much change from last year. Total Postings, Average Contributors, and Average Month Contributors are down. However, Average Subscribers and Average Countries are up.

However, what is disturbing is that we only had 19 people who contributed this year from our 31 contributors. You other people on the Contributors list, GET TO IT AND CONTRIBUTE!

All of you have a good 2010!
(This report updated with current information: December 2017)

SUBSCRIBING INSTRUCTIONS:
1) http://thehumorlist.us/subscribe.htm

2) The one-time subscriber fee is now $14.95 for one email address or $19.95 for two email addresses.

3) After payment through PayPal, you will be directed back to the Humor List website. Because PayPal and SimpleLists are not directly connected, there is a second step that must be completed. Please continue by adding your subscription information to the SimpleLists form.

4) One of the factors in deciding to allow SimpleLists to become our new mailing list service was their strict anti-spamming policy. After completing the SimpleLists form, you will be sent a "Request to join mailing list thehumorlist@simplelists.com" email with a confirmation link. Be sure to confirm your email address. If a subscriber has not "confirmed" their email address - SimpleLists will not allow us to include their email address for daily mailings.

DOUG'S TRADITIONAL HUMOR CONTRIBUTION
And finally, the one feature which has been featured in all Traffic Reports, the contribution of Humor. Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives. It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. This is my contribution of Humor from the Archives:

This joke is joke #3 in the Digest For 8/26/2008
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H0808260.php#Joke3
From: Paul Benoit
Subject: Swimming Lessons

[excerpted from The Old Perfesser's diary]

Dear Diary,
Over sixty years ago, my father taught me to swim by throwing me in the river.
Mother told me of his deathbed confession: He wasn't trying to teach me to swim.

- The Old Perfesser
