When I first launched Quick Sprout in April of 2007, my goal was to create a community that was so engaged that it would produce at least twenty comments on each post. At first, I thought this was a lofty goal that could never be achieved. Boy, did you ever prove me wrong.
Granted, half the comments on every post are from me, but still it’s your insights that lead to the great conversations we have every day.
If you don’t believe me, just look at these great stats that you helped achieve:
- There is currently 138 blog posts on Quick Sprout.
- In the past three years, 18,306 comments have been made on the blog.
- Out of those 18,306 comments, 8,386 came from me.
- The average post gets around 132 comments.
Taking the next steps
Over the past three years, I have also learned that blogging and responding to your comments isn’t enough. In many cases, you have questions that aren’t related to a blog post. Plus, there really isn’t a place where we can leverage this great community of ours to get an answer.
Because of this, I have decided to launch Quick Sprout Answers. Quick Sprout Answers is a place where you can ask any question that’s on your mind. Not only will I answer it, but community members will also answer it.
So, if you have a question or would like to share your wisdom, feel free to check out Quick Sprout Answers.
Comments and concerns
Don’t worry, Quick Sprout Answers won’t be affecting the blog in any shape or form. I’ll still be interacting with you on every blog post, and, I hope, you’ll still be interacting with me. Let’s face it: without that, Quick Sprout wouldn’t be what it is.
In addition to that, if you have any questions that you want to keep private, you can still email me, and I’ll confidentially answer them.
Lastly, if you have any feedback on Quick Sprout Answers or ideas on how it can be improved, I would love it if you could leave a comment.
