As we begin 2008, I wanted to update everyone on some changes going on here at MCW which I hope will help make the site an even better resource for you to use. I am overwhelmed by the support and traffic the site has gotten over the years and as we get more and more readers each year, we receive many comments about how to make MCW a better place.
2007 was a terrific year for MCW and I want to thank all of my readers, message board participants, correspondents and especially our advertisers for making 2007 our best year ever. Incredibly, we finished 2007 with over 52 million hits and well over 500,000 visitors. We published the Top 50 Fairs list and carnival list again this year as well as 70 feature articles on the home page and daily headlines from throughout the industry.
As I noted earlier, in 2008 we will be making some updates that will increase the value of the site to our readers. We are working hard to completely update the list of fairs for 2008. This is an enormous undertaking but we hope to have the entire project completed this Spring. Also, we are now listing carnivals, entertainers and manufacturers free in our database. There will be a charge for bold type, logos, and priority placement but the basic listing will now be free. If your business would like to be listed please email us with the details.

Finally, I wanted to once again ask for help from those who are going to be attending the fair meetings this year. We would like to have information and articles published on as many conventions as possible. If you could ask some questions and collect some information while you are attending these meetings, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will give you the details. Don't worry about being a great writer, if needed we can edit your information before publication.
Again, I want to thank all of you for making carnivalwarehouse.com the number one source of news and information for the outdoor amusement business. We have many low-cost effective opportunities for advertising and networking and we hope you will consider MCW for your advertising needs. Just contact us for details. If you have any suggestions for making the site better, I would love to hear from you. I wish you all great health, happiness and success in 2008!
