I've highlighted the three relating to the split fix in pink. The two highlighted in yellow are things I was somewhat interested in. I think when 80% of your recent articles have nothing to do with the name of your feature, you may want to rebrand to "Trafficking Columbus: About Traffic, Not Drugs" or "Transport Blog: We'll complain about traffic or your money back" or something about generic transportation.
But really, it makes sense that you can't fill a blog with a road as small as the Innerbelt. Plus, there's only so much viewership you can get with "Ramp X is closed" or "Traffic was backed up again." Diversification is good but I don't look at everything filed under "Crawlumbus" because the idea behind it doesn't interest me. However, transportation does interest me.
For example, take what has happened since January 1, 2012, when BuckIDs were required to be swiped on COTA:
That's interesting. The following is also interesting for the author's disdain of how the bikes look:
"They're also not the most glamorous looking bikes. Bikes used for Minneapolis' program are lime green. Chicago's are gun-metal gray."I think they're kind of cute:
