Your feedback was interesting, candid, and incredibly helpful. We found that there are a few features our readers really like, while the other weekly articles could easily slip away without much hubbub.
Since Tiger Bytes’ inception, we’ve also been measuring the traffic to this blog. It’s clear that we have several faithful readers, but in comparison with our other University channels, the readership is relatively small and has not grown over time. Meanwhile, traffic to http://www.olivet.edu/ continues to increase every month, and the number of Facebook fans and Twitter followers we have has skyrocketed over the past year.
It is for these reasons that ye old Tiger Bytes writers are signing off for now. We’ve had a lot of fun with this blog and getting to know you. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve uncovered a lot of trivial trivia together. Perhaps someday, we’ll have the pleasure of meeting you face-to-face in a Tiger Bytes reunion.
Your favorite features are not going away, but will simply be moved to other places, like http://www.olivet.edu/, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube . And now that we have more time on our hands, we’ll be introducing new features in each of those places. Be sure to check us out!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and an awesome summer! And don’t forget to stay in touch.
All the best,

P.S. We didn’t want to leave you hanging on our final Trivia Tuesday answer. On May 25, 2006, in Madrid, Spain, 300 self-proclaimed geeks arranged themselves to form a human replica of Pac Man. Now there’s a good use of time.
