I am glad to say that this week our blog crossed 20,000 subscribers. If you are one of them, thank you! If you are not, what are you waiting for? You can subscribe and keep updated with all our posts, via RSS, email or Twitter. And yeah, it is completely free.
Now let me share with you guys how it all started. Early in 2007 my DailyBlogTips.com blog was growing quite fast. As the name implies, my goal there is to help other bloggers, and I realized that most people around could use a brush-up on their writing skills.
Initially I was not sure if I should publish the writing tips on that same blog or start a new blog exclusively for that purpose. I ended opting for the latter, and DailyWritingTips.com was born.
English is my second language, so instead of writing the content myself I decided to bring some writers aboard. Maeve Maddox was one of them, and boy did she know her stuff. Her very first post, titled Let the Word Do the Work, received over 5,000 visitors and many comments in a matter of 24 hours.
Along the years we also had other talented writers contributing to the blog, but Maeve was the most prolific one, and now she is the editor in chief. Once in a while I chime in with a post or two (like this one), but she is in charge of our core content.
And that is where we are right now. But stay tuned, because we have a lot of great content in the pipeline for you!
