Posts Tagged ‘Year 1’

There are more than 100 million blogs in the world, but there’s no one home at most of them. According to the numbers I’ve seen, most blogs are abandoned in the first month. If there is such as thing as the “average blog,” it has the life expectancy of a relationship that began in the “Casual Encounters” section of Craigslist.

But Run-DMSteve is still standing, one year and 47 posts later! In my next post I’ll tell you how and why I launched this publishing juggernaut and what I’ve learned. I’ll also give you the lowdown on my Loyal Readers. Until then, here’s the first year in one handy place. I’ll eventually move it over to the Blogroll column.

Thanks always for reading. Keep on rockin’ in the free world!
