The one service here at TrekToday which has grown to become far more popular than I ever expected it would be is the TrekToday Headlines service, which I added to the site exactly two months ago today. When launching it, I figured maybe 10 or 20 sites would actually start using it, but I just updated the list of sites using TT headlines, which now actually has 85 sites on it - and about an equal number of sites which didn't submit their URL for inclusion on that page, according to my statistics. Most sites using the service decided to include 10 headlines with short news descriptions, making up nearly half of all the headline requests together with the option to just have 10 headlines without descriptions. But almost every other option is used as well, with to my great surprise the option to include just 1 headline being used in 23% of all cases. If you also want to have TrekToday headlines on your page, you're of course still able to sign up - I wonder when we'll hit the 100 sites.
