At midnight on November 1st, Progressive Blogic (PB) will celebrate its first birthday. I would like to say it has been fun for all 365 days to date, but then I would be stretching the truth to the breaking point.
It certainly started out fun, as Molly and I celebrated every time we reached some small threshold in page views. Neither of us expected it to take off so fast nor ever exceed 100,000 page views so quickly.
As PB grew, it sometimes became a challenge to keep up with the blog. With the approach of the blog’s first anniversary, I find myself proud of what has been accomplished, but at the same time saddened that what started as a team effort, no longer is; and by the tepid to non-existent support for the blog from some surprising and unexpected sources.
Has all the work been worth the effort? Yes. Has it been worth the cost? Only time will tell on that question.
I do wish to thank anyone and everyone who has contributed, read, commented, or accidentally clicked onto Progressive Blogic during its first year of operation. I especially want to thank Molly for all her efforts through the first eight months – PB would have never been as successful as it has become without her.
Any feedback for improving the site in the future would be appreciated and I look forward to continued blogging vibe, though perhaps as a less brisk pace during year two.
