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.

      I celebrate you on this momentous 5th anniversary milestone! Huge thanks for all the awesome expertise you share so selflessly. May all of your tomorrows continue to brim with the priceless trademark intellectual brilliance you radiate.

      Copy That Over. HAPPY Birthday you little 5 year old.
      Child Genius, I agree whole kindheartedly.
      Love reading your blog, love learning from ‘Idiot Savant of Copy’ :)

      Your podcasts are the best part of your program because you can only write so much in every article and the podcasts allow you to dive into greater detail. What’s more, you don’t have the opportunity to sit for a half hour proof reading your audio like you do your posts, so we get to see the real you in action.

      Thanks for helping us all out! My site went from 2,000 followers to 9,600 thanks to your work on how to get your feed seen better.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I have been an enthusiastic admirer for some time and thoroughly enjoy reading and re-reading your posts. Keep up the good work; I’ve been hooked.

    Happy Birthday! Here’s to many more … (As for scribbling on the wall with that Sharpie – you’re forgiven, but only because your scribblings are so insightful.)

  7. says

    Congratulations for a very productive and successful year. Definitely, year 6 and the years ahead will always be a blast for the most awesome blog in the web world.

    Happy Birthday Kids….

    Keep on growing….

    Many happy returns – wish I’d been around since the birth, because you guys have been a great resource for me over the last few months. Look forward to more.

  10. says

    Nice work. Been a lurker for the last 2 or 3 years and great to see you guys grow. Am sure bigger and better things await in the future. Always one of my first stops online to get a bit of inspiration :)

    Happy Birthday! Thanks for all of the great insights and advice. Lookin’ forward to many more!

  13. says

    If there ever was a stellar model of providing great value, ideas, and guidance and then letting the money follow naturally with gratitude, Copyblogger and its principals are it!
    Happy Birthday and many, many more!

  14. says

    Happy birthday, Copyblogger! Your posts are always stimulating and helpful. Two months into blogging now, so at five years you are like a granddaddy to me.

  15. says

    I only discovered you guys about 4 months ago … I’m surprised to hear you’re only 5 years old. You have the wisdom of someone much older … maybe like an 8 year old! Thanks, I’m learning daily!

  16. says

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Wow, 5 years is a quite a long time! Congrats on your success and keep the good information coming!


  17. says

    Happy Birthday! I just stated following this blog about 2 weeks ago, so I’m a little “late to the party”. However, I’ve learned a TON already, and I’m looking forward to what you have in store for year 6 …

    Best to you,

  18. says

    You may be 5 years old but have an experienced of an old teacher who have vast knowledge to share to his students. Happy Birthday, CoppyBlogger!

  19. says

    Happy Birthday! Can’t believe it has been that long. The knowledge gained from copyblogger is unlike anything else, keep up the good work!

  20. says

    Kudos and congratulations! Copyblogger is the best site covering online writing, website design, list management, and related issues. If I had to choose only one site for advice and ideas about how to create and manage great websites and blogs from concept to content and beyond, Copyblogger would be it. Here’s to another 5, 10, 15, 20.

    Many thanks for the gems of thought you’ve shared with your readers/subscribers. Looking forward to the next five years! And what you’ll do when you become a teenager! :)

  22. Jon Morrow says

    Dude, these have seriously been five great years. Thanks for starting something so special.

  23. says

    Feliz bloggy posts! What a wonderful age – old enough to know the date and how to tie your shoes, but still too young to dreamless and stuck in your ways.
    Cake, thanks.

  24. says

    Happy Birthday Copyblogger!

    There is no other site more formative to my toddler years online.

    Thanks for everything, and best of luck in kindergarten!

  25. says

    Happy birthday folks. Many thanks for all of the great content – looking forward to the next five years.

    Five years – makes my 2 months on my blog seem very little :)

    Have a big cake!

  26. says

    Brian — Copyblogger has been my go to resource for most of the last 5 years. You (and the team) completely redefined the way I view writing/blogging online. Thank you for everything; I can’t wait to see what the next five years bring!

  27. says

    In Quebec, we’d buy you large beers and make you chug it all in one swallow, then clap you on the back and huzzah while watching you try not to throw up.

    Lacking beer, I’ll offer the back-clapping and cheers. A very happy birthday to you.

  28. says

    Many Happy Returns!

    Yep, it’s been quite a ride. Thanks for being a blog that makes a difference. (And I hope it’s not getting too hard to blow out all those candles. 😉 )

  29. says

    Dude, congratulations to everyone on the Copyblogger Team! You all had a big 2010! Really lovin’ all that you contribute and do to help make us more successful on a daily basis. Cheers to moving forward and making even bigger waves in 2011!
