WELCOME TO THE 2011 ANNUAL TRAFFIC REPORT
Hi, everyone. This is Doug with the Annual Traffic Report for 2011 . Below the summary data for this year. I have included the corresponding data for last year, if it is available.

I realized that I never sent out this report for 2011, so I am sending it out VERY late. You'll have to forgive me.

Some observations: The number is subscribers is slowly declining. The number of Articles is down from the previous year. Apparently we did not have enough Contributors to fill out the Top 25, even less than last year. This is exactly what I said last year.

Since this Report is being sent out in April 2012, I have a little advance information. It seems since The Humor List moved to its new location, things seem to be picking up. I hope they continue.
(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 #5 in the Digest For 8/17/1997
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H9708170.php#Joke5

From: Chalapathi Rao Poduri
Subject: Golden Jubilee Celebrations <clean>

A 50% discount on the 50th year of Independence sure does sound like a slick offer, right? A software company which launched it's new vernacular package recently had it's sales representatives complaining, "Thank God, it's not the 100th year!!"

Chalapathi, proud of being an Indian (*^_^*)
And euphoric, still, after Friday's celebrations!!
