It’s my 5 Year Blogiversary!
Can you believe it?
It’s been five freakin’ years since my very first blog post.
3,137 posts. And my favorite stat . . .
I started this blog on my father’s birthday, which is no coincidence, since he’s the guy that inspired me to always question, always challenge, and to always seek improvement. The mission of the blog way back then was to “amplify the conversation about the theater.” See, I always hypothesized that there were a bunch of people out there just like me who want to talk about the theater . . . with the hopes that conversation would lead to more participation, which would lead to more support, more shows, and, in the long term, more audiences.
And you and your 10,610 comments proved my hypothesis correct.
I can’t thank you all enough for going on this e-journey with me for the last five years, and participating in this conversation about this business that, despite its dysfunction, we all love so much.
If it wasn’t for those comments, I wouldn’t have made it to Year #2.
And you’ve all inspired me to get to Year #10.
Wow. Just imagine what Broadway will look like then? Will there be hard tickets? Will print advertising disappear completely? Will Phantom still be running?
I’m excited to find out. You?
(By the way . . . scroll through some of those early posts if you get a chance. There are some fun entries, and some entries that I might not even agree with myself anymore! Just click the archives section on the lower left hand side of the blog. Or if clicking ain’t your cup of tea, click here and you can grab the published form aka a book.)
Oh, and one more thing . . . and this is more important than any 5 year blog or any business, including Broadway . . . Happy 83rd Birthday, Dad.
