One year of blogging
Knowledge Tester blog turns 1 today!
Last year on same date, when I wrote the welcome note, I was not sure how long my passion for ‘writing about software testing’ will be. But the good thing that it is going and seems like it will keep going. To mark this anniversary I’m glad to introduce new logo designed by friends (well, not free but at a discounted rate).
I have many thanks due for this journey starting from the friends who suggested me to start the blog at the first place (hey there, you know it 🙂 ). Then I’m thankful to my friends who have become regular readers and commentators on the blog and to regular readers who have become my friends now. I am also thankful to guest posts from some of my special friends. And those who at times help me with proof read the drafts or suggest/instigate an idea for a post.
One amazing fact is that software testing is a truly a global economy and WordPress stats suggest that so far 53 countries have touched the blog. I knew I had some influence outside Pakistan (my native country) but had no idea that I’ll be reaching such a larger global audience. Truly amazing.
Just some more facts that my most popular blog posts have been on the subject of Tester-Programmer friendship, Testers putting more focus on learning the business they serve to the bug finding missions. The average readership that I had in my first month got 8 times increased in my 12th month and it keeps on improving.
Oh yeah, if you there thinking to starting your blog. My advice is “get started and keep marketing your stuff” and yours can be a successful story even more than mine.
By the way, what topics you’d like me to cover more in the next year?
