June 2020 will mark one-year since we started to prepare to enter the Google News Source network. In October 2019, we officially applied and at that time we only had about 25K viewers.  Today, the CC+L team has brought our traffic up to over 100K visitors each month, and Google is helping us get our content out even faster with a higher search rank. It was definitely a challenge, but an even bigger reward, to have been accepted. The approval was also timely as we fire ahead to publish the first Belize Gold Book.
