It is September 13th – back on this date in 2009 I made my first post on Queers4Gears and never thought for a minute I would still be posting three years later.
It has been quite the ride and it wouldn’t been possible without all of you reading and following along.
Q4G expanded in the last 12 months adding several new contributors and we started producing and hosting our own podcast in-house. Out average visits per month jumped to over 15k and we passed 5k followers on Twitter.
We re-focused the content on the site to publish mostly commentary and humor – that whole “real journalism” thing was hard – snark is so much more fun! I also noticed the readers clicked on the snark more than re-blogged news they could find on any site.
I want to thank a lot of people – they have all helped me out a little or a lot along the way and I appreciate you all: My Mom, Troy Germain, Edward Ochoa, Brent Summers, Ross Bynum, Adam Lovelace, Hannah Rickards, John Bisci, David Talley, Lee Spencer, Reid Spencer, Jeff Gluck, Jim Utter, Doug Rice, Farrah Kaye, Lewis Franck, Mojo Nixon, Kendra Jacobs, Ryan McGee, The Speed Freaks (Crash and Kenny), Gary and Dino, Josh Hamilton, Owen Kerns, Marty Smith and last but not least ALL OF YOU FOR FOLLOWING ALONG! (I hope I didn’t leave anyone out)
Three years and we’re just getting warmed up…. stay tuned!
