Brick by brick. From the first month when we reached 100 views per day ad was excited, then 1000 a day after a year or so of putting the link to the blog in front of as many people I could, then adding great people as contributors, 5000, 10,0000, 20,000 four years in, 30,000 and now where we are now averaging around 45,000 views per day based in a city of 30,000. What a gift it’s been to all of us. Mainly the friendships. You could take it all away and those friendships are the most valuable to me. We’ve been through a lot. We’ve lost loved ones, we’ve garnered national attention, won a ton of awards, fought the good fight, but at the end of the day it’s the people- the friendships, the love shared and the passion for highlighting the best our city has to offer. It’s the people. It’s you guys. It’s the community.
Here’s to another 10 years of passionate community love and collaboration.
