I’d like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you out there for reading Copyblogger. We’re just shy of 22,000 subscribers now, after starting the year with 10,000. The blog is also poised to receive comment number 10,000 very soon, which I think is a good sign for the community you are building around here.
So, thank you very much! I hope you’ll stick around, because there’s more coming.
Can I ask you a question?
It won’t hurt, I promise.
Copyblogger has been fortunate enough to be included on many “top” lists segmented by topic, such as marketing, blogging and writing. Some have even tried to include Copyblogger on SEO lists, but some SEO bloggers say it doesn’t belong. Fair enough–I don’t think this is a SEO blog either.
But as Chris Garrett smartly points out, it doesn’t matter what the author thinks a blog is about, or what any single list author thinks, either. Every individual reader views a blog in a certain way, and that’s the correct answer for that particular reader.
In other words, it’s important for every blogger to have a vision for the publication, but learning how your readers view you is critical to developing that vision.
So, what is Copyblogger about to you? What’s the first topic that pops in your head when you think of this joint?
There’s a very good chance that your answer will be lucky comment 10,000… and there might even be a prize. But mostly, you’ll be helping me to point Copyblogger in the right direction going forward, and I sincerely appreciate you taking the time.
Thanks again to all.
