A review of our progress four months in

A summary of Technology Bloggers achievements, 4 months in.

Today Technology Blogger has been live for 4 months – or 17 weeks and 3 days if you want to look at it like that.

Now after the first two weeks of being on the net, I wrote an article about what we had achieved as a community. Today I am going to do the same, but 17 (and a bit) weeks in, just so you can get a sense of scale as to the amazing feats that we have achieved.

Technology Bloggers LogoAs of today, the 13th of August 2011:

How have we achieved all this?

I have written a series on how to be a successful blogger, telling you what I have done that has helped the blog be a success, but I couldn’t have done this on my own.

The real answer is you guys! If you have written for us, commented on our content or even just read some of our stuff, it’s thanks to you that we have achieved what we have.

The best bit!

Great, we have achieved all this, but so what? Well I feel like I have gained a lot from the blog in this short amount of time, so I hope you have to, but remember we are a dofollow blog with great content, so everyone benefits! Read | Contribute | Benefit – it’s there for a reason πŸ™‚

Readers gain knowledge and know-how from our content and others comments comments. Readers who also choose to comment benefit from the fantastic community we have and dofollow links. Writers benefit so much too: experience; exposure to a massive audience; dofollow links to their site; highly valuable, quality comments on their work; potentially AdSense earnings, etc.

The future…

Well done to all, we should be very pleased with our achievements, but I see this as just the beginning.

We have grown at such a rate in such a short space of time, I can’t see any reason why in a year or two we could have the likes of TechCrunch, Engadget and Mashable quaking in their boots!

Keep up the great work everyone πŸ™‚

Christopher.

*Sigh* πŸ™

4 months in and yet some people still don’t get it.

Thanks for the congrats Desi, but the point is this isn’t my blog, its our blog – including you as a commenter.
It’s not good news for me, it’s good news for you, me, Naser, Marc, Maria, Chadrack, Alan, John etc.

Oh well, maybe we will get there in another 4 months πŸ˜‰

We can get there, if we keep working together, to keep improving our community technology blog!

Thanks for the encouragement Naser πŸ™‚

Well done, Technology Bloggers! As a writer for Technology Bloggers as well, I would like to add on the great job done by Christopher for making life easy for us. All the procedures to submit article for this blog is smooth and notifications are done manually by the administrator. Let’s hope for the best in the coming few years!

Thanks for the appreciation Alan πŸ™‚

“Let’s hope for the best in the coming few years!” – seconded!

“I think it future the blog will become only stronger and better.” – now that would be great wouldn’t it!

looking at the other blogs you cite here I find them rather monotone. They lack the diversity that might attract somebody like me who is not really interested in technology in se, but in social implications provoked by technology. Maybe we should push for diversity instead of falling into this trap. Only my personal view of course.

I feel that’s what we are developing, don’t you Jonny? We have loads of writers writing about loads of different niches πŸ™‚

Wow, this is really some great achievement! And I must say I love your forward looking atitude, “I can’t see any reason why in a year or two we could have the likes of TechCrunch, Engadget and Mashable quaking in their boots!” It’s simply takes planning and focus and if you can achieve this in 4 months then there’s some surprises in the future.

Congratulations.

Well thanks Nasif!

BTW, I saw your corrective comment so I corrected the mistake and then deleted the second comment πŸ™‚
