Copyblogger is 5 Years Old!

image of 5-year-old

Yep, it’s time to put on the big boy pants … Copyblogger is five years old today.

A lot has happened in those quick five years, but as with any 5-year-old, we’re just getting started.

Most of all, we want to thank each and every one of you for “raising” us to this point — it truly could not have happened without you. So thanks for that, and also for sticking with us for the cool stuff we’ve got for you as we head toward age six.

We’re also really sorry for scribbling on the wall with that black Sharpie. Whoops.

  1. Happy 5th birthday, and thanks for all your wisdom. Really, you’re a child genius!

  2. Happy Birthday CB –

    And the post that started it all was called “Sold”. In fact, it talks about how people go online for information seeking out solutions. And blogs are such a great way to build authority and trust so when you do “buy”, you don’t feel that certain discomfort that comes from being sold….

    That post, 5 years later is still true and it’s not only true it’s been proven over and over. And as Zig Ziglar once said,

    “Every sale has five basic obstacles: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, no trust.”

    Enough said. Copyblogger was born and what a great place to be then and in the foreseeable future.

  3. Happy Birthday CopyBlogger!

    Where did you get that boy’s pic? 😆

    CopyBlogger has significantly improved over time (especially after leaving Thesis 😐 ). I wish to see how it looked like when it started its journey, though.

  4. Expect to see lots more independence, attitude, and requests for cash.

    Well, that’s what happened when my Little Dude turned five, anyway. 😉

  5. Happy Birthday! Keep up the excellent work you’re doing!

  6. Happy birthday to you.
    Happy birthday to you.
    Happy birthday dear Copyblogger
    Happy birthday to you.

  7. Happy birthday!
    I would also like to see how it looked when it started its journey. It could be pretty interesting to compare the transformation.

  8. Ever thought about making a book/ebook out of some of the better posts?

    Five years of this is a lot for someone to go through. A book would help new readers get more out of CB.

  9. Tres belle fete, Copyblogger. Thank you for the inspiration(s). Look forward to many more.

  10. Happy Birthday Copyblogger! :) You’ve given me some great posts that inspire me to become a better blogger. May this be the best year yet.
