MVSJ published its 400th post on Friday; now we just need more subscribers.
Four, zero, zero.
It’s a big number no matter how you stack it.
Why do I mention it today? Easy, because this post — West Linn girls roll past Tigard 62-52 — which went live on the website late on Friday, Jan. 20, marked the 400th post to Miles Vance Sports Journal since its launch back on Aug. 25, 2022.
That means that in the 26 weeks since launch — if we count just five work days per week since then — readers/subscribers have seen an average of more than three posts per day on MVSJ, with every one of them dedicated solely to the teams and athletes at Lake Oswego, Lakeridge and West Linn high schools.
That includes the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, when high school sports were momentarily on hold, not to mention the extra week off between fall and winter campaigns created by the shorter high school football season.
So if you like high school sports — and especially high school sports at Lake Oswego, Lakeridge and West Linn high schools — there’s a ton of great content for you at Miles Vance Sports Journal. There’s content you can’t get anywhere else and in abundance you won’t get anywhere else.
Along the way, I have posted literally thousands of photos in more than 100 photo slideshows. I’ve also made those photos — via digital download or traditional print — available for sale at milesvance.smugmug.com.
I have conducted hundreds of athlete interviews — all of them with Lakers, Pacers and Lions. I have written previews of every varsity team at each school. I have written stories on every set of all-league and all-state teams from the fall.
I wrote stories on every football game played by each of the varsity teams at LO, Lakeridge and West Linn, beginning with Lake Oswego’s season-opening win over Barlow back on Sept. 1, 2022, and continuing through West Linn’s win over Sheldon in the Class 6A state championship game on Nov. 25.
In the winter season, I have already written about every team at Lake Oswego, Lakeridge and West Linn multiple times, with much more to come before the playoffs and district meets/tournaments arrive.
In short, if you care about sports at Lake Oswego, Lakeridge and West Linn, if you want the teams and athletes at those schools to get the respect they deserve, and if you want to have their accomplishments recognized and recorded for years to come, you should subscribe to Miles Vance Sports Journal.
