How Time Flies

It seems hard to believe, but next week marks the third birthday of Wasabi Media Group.  So much has changed over those 1,095 days, that it seems appropriate to glance back.

What did things look like when WMG launched?  In July 2008, we were comprised of twenty-two of our current twenty-four sites.  The Wasabi team was much smaller, consisting of ten writers, a part-time designer, and a part-time programmer.  Yours truly served as editor and sales manager, among other various roles.  We published twenty-five articles in a successful week and had approximately 4,000 visitors each month.

How do our current numbers compare?  We have twenty-four properties, all of which publish new material at least twice a week, setting our weekly total at seventy-five (or more) articles.  The WMG team has grown immensely, as we now have thirty contributors (twenty team writers and ten specialists), a full-time designer, a full-time programmer, a sales and marketing manager, two associate editors, and one CEO/editor-in-chief.  On a weekly basis we are launching new designs and features.  We now have approximately one million readers each month!

Where will we go from here?  We will add more features that pique the interest of our readers.  Our publishing volume will increase in order to deliver more articles that inform and entertain.  As always, we will strive to meet our company’s goal: Engage your mind through our media.
