Pardon The Interruption, South Florida: You Crashed Gossip Extra!

 The daily traffic increase on Gossip Extra during its first month caused a chain reaction that threatened 300 other websites hosted by Bluehost in Utah about noon Thursday.

So, Bluehost officials shut down Gossip Extra, without prior notice.

For that, South Florida, thank you!

Your frequent visits — about 5,700 in the 8 minutes before Bluehost staff freaked out — show that Gossip Extra has a place here. Since it launched quietly Oct. 6, this site has received 213,157 page views and 50,131 unique visitors — which already makes it one of the area’s most visited non-mainstream local media site.

This couldn’t have happened without word-of-mouth buzz.

And it couldn’t have happened without my founding sponsors: Century 21 Palm Beach and Steve Bate Real Estate in Palm Beach County; Coastal Credit Clinic in Aventura; and The Forge restaurant in Miami Beach. Please, patronize these local small businesses. They helped kick off this website!

In less than six hours yesterday, my tireless tech Tam Peterson migrated the site to the servers of a more reputable and reliable company.

Now, we will  accommodate every single visitor!
