Okay, it’s me. A few of you knew that; most of you didn’t. To those who did know, thanks for keeping the secret. And to those who didn’t know, thanks for not asking around too much. Secrets like this rarely keep long.
I started the Denver PR Blog because there was a vacuum of PR information in Denver, due in part to the shrinking business sections in the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News. Many of us wanted to know what was going on in Denver’s PR community, but only knew what we heard around town at lunches or various PR events. My goal with the blog was to aggregate and disseminate Denver PR news and rumors for everyone’s consumption. And to do it with enough of an edge that it stayed interesting.
I kept the blog anonymous because I thought intrigue would drive traffic, which it has done. In fact, the growth has astounded me. I started it less than a year ago, and in that time it has grown from 150 hits a month to more than 14,000 a month. I have done nothing to promote it other than exchange a few links; the growth has been organic, driven entirely through word-of-mouth by you. And I thank you for that.
So, now, the next evolution of the blog will begin, and I hope that it will contain many more voices than just mine. Thanks for reading.
