Spring has sprung and April is finished. The theatrical scene in Utah was a little bit quieter last month, which led to a drop in traffic compared to March (which was our best month ever). Nevertheless, there is some good news because the number of pageviews and the average time spent on the site is up substantially–which is a sign to us that we are providing useful content to readers.
