Two Year Anniversary Humblebrag
Around two years ago, Ryan and I started this blog with the simple goal of channelling our lifetime passion for sports. After two weeks we grew our followers to double digits. The audience was small but it was an audience and it kept us going. Now, two days shy of our two year anniversary, we’re creeping on 10,000 followers! *Tebowing with thanks*.
We jumped into the sports media game (and Tumblr) unaware that the industry was changing. With the help of Twitter and Tumblr, independant sports publishers are making a name for themselves. Humbly, that’s what we’re trying to do with The Tickr and we have a few things in the pipeline that we hope will do just that.
With the help of our new recruit, Steven LeBron, we’re going to start creating original sports content. It all starts tomorrow with a new feature we’re calling 3 in the Key. On a weekly basis, Steven LeBron will focus on three relevant basketball plot lines and package it all up in one post worth pondering. From there we plan on building out more, yet to be determined, original content features — thoughts, viewpoints and opinions you won’t find anywhere else but here at The Tickr.
We’ve come a long way since January 4th, 2010 but we have an even longer way to go. Our vision for 2012 and beyond is strong and we look forward to rolling it out to you. Thank you for making our humble sports blog mean a little something. We’re still flying coach but we’re sitting next to cute blondes who read Those Guys Have All The Fun.
