Travis Mateer aka William Skink

I started blogging in 2010 as “lizard” at 4 and 20 Blackbirds.  In 2015 the absentee landlord of that blog decided my criticism of Democrats had crossed an unspoken line, so I was kicked off the blog and started Reptile Dysfunction, later renamed Zoom Chron, where I continue to report on local issues with a unique mixture of on-the-ground insights and unabashed opinions you won’t find anywhere else.

Consistently producing content made 2022 a great year for my efforts to crack local narrative control on critical issues facing our community, as the numbers below clearly show.  So how can you help?

Well, if your eyes represent one of those 88,795 views, I hope you consider making a financial donation to help me continue and expand my style of independent journalism. What are you waiting for?
