Hey, look. We just passed 2,000 members. w00t!
As you can see from the image below, courtesy of +CircleCount
, we've experienced linear growth, so Jeff and I feel pretty good about that. And thanks to +James Calbraith
for taking up the moderation shift when it's sleepy time for us.
But we're by far the biggest. My buddy +Fraser Cain
GPC will break 100,000 members by the end of the month. We're not even the biggest writing/publishing focused GPC. That distinction belongs to the Writer's Discussion Group
started by my friend +John Ward
. He'll be close to 10,000 members as we head into February. Well done, guys!
Not to take anything away from them or what their communities have achieved, but I never had any designs on being the biggest. I'm very happy with the niche we're carving out and remain committed to keeping the conversations of high value to anyone interested in aspects of digital publishing. That doesn't always sit well with everyone. Good thing I have a thick skin.
To those active who've been helping keep that value high -- thank you. To those lurking who are happy to receive the value -- thank you. And to those reading this for the first time -- welcome!
