Happy Weekend. April 04 2014, 0 Comments

Spring is here, rain and all. We are suppose to have cloudy somewhat sunny weather which I’ll happily take!

I wanted to send a quick note thanking all the readers who have been coming on to the site each week. I and MB’s amazing contributors really appreciate your support. In the last few months we have been having readers from not only Brooklyn but from all over the country. Wow. When I first started Motherburg I always said I hoped for readers not only from this sweet neighborhood but hopefully from all over. This week alone we had visitors from Australia, Italy, France, Russia and Poland and this is just this week! Welcome and please feel free to email me if you feel there is a topic we are missing.
