The post that opened Spiceworks-News was this time last year, taking 2 weeks for Spiceworks to find it and to declare what a big hit it was.
Since then we have changed our name to Unofficial Spiceworks and we have gone from having a blue coloured theme to a Spiceworks Orange one.
So what have we ( well I ) done in the year?
- 150+ unique visitors a day
- ~50 returning visitors a day
- 18 Google subscribers
- 300+ Track able referrals + countless none track able
- 360+ posts (just under one a day)
- 30+ Categories
- 130+ comments
- 840+ tweets
- Made it into the Spiceworks monthly update email twice
- Got 120+ links back to us
- Got 3 guest posts by Justin Dorfman
- Was the inspiration for SpiceworksLounge.com the Hebrew Spiceworks site
With some outstanding and loved posts like
As well as then creating Let Me Spiceworks Search That For You and working hard on the community to answer questions.
I know were not the biggest blog but its not bad?
So what’s to come?
Well my plan as with any website is to continue to grow. Some key things coming up will be:
- New logo and slogan, this has been in the works for a while. I will be shorty posting up more information about this and how you can get involved.
- A new theme? Maybe, Maybe not… not sure on that one.
- The closure off spread-spiceworks.org.uk, this was the inspiration for Unofficial Spiceworks but quickly found it copied too much off the official Spread Spiceworks area and recently ended up being a holding page with not a lot of info or visits. I’m in the process of deciding if I want to port the theme on to Unofficial Spiceworks. Either way in the coming months the site will just redirect to here.
- Better insider information, hopefully I can try and wiggle my way into Spiceworks HQ more this year to get some more information to you first.
- More guest posts, from doing things in the community to making plugin’s, what ever people want to talk about. If you want to guest post drop me a email via the the contact form or add a comment anything Spiceworks related.
- Work on my spealing, I know its really bad at times, I’m working on it…
And thank you
Too all the readers for continuing to read
It’s what makes it worth while.
