YAY! It's SKOHRboard's 1st Birthday! Well technically it was yesterday but I didn't want to have the party until the weekend. The site started out innocently enough (as a normal blog no less!) but now it's grown into the international multimedia behemoth you see before you today. The very first article was a boring intro post where I talked about writing on topics such not sports. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!? LOL. Actually the second post ever was a 2010 NFL Draft recap, which I encourage you to read as we move into Days 2 and 3 of this year's draft.
It's pretty clear that this is now a one stop shop for everything you desire in the sports world. In fact, we're working on a new motto and right now we have one kicking around that goes something like, "ESPN who?" It's catchy right?
It's been a great year and SKOHRboard has really grown. From the meager beginnings when a 100 visitor month was noteworthy, we've averaged roughly 3,000 Unique Users a month over the last four months and April 2011 has been our best month ever in terms of page views with over 10,000! There have been 212 posts over the past 12 months, over 30,000 page views, over 15,000 visitors, and there are now 84 Fans of the SKOHRboard Facebook page! What a wonderful audience!
Big thanks to those that have helped me with SKOHRboard by doing things like coming up with the name (Lauren), writing (Justin and John), promoting (Erin), or floating great ideas for stories my way (the Stangs League plus Everyone, oh and keep those ideas coming!). There have been some memorable posts over the last year and you can find them all in the SKOHRboard's Most Popular Articles gadget on the right side of the page. Go check them out if you're haven't seen them yet. Those are some great articles but the SKOHRboard & Stangs Leauge Mock Draft Series (results here!) that ran leading up to the NFL Draft this weekend really takes the cake. Seriously if I had cake or if that football birthday cake in the picture was real I would totally give each of the GMs a slice.
I'd also like to thank everyone who comes here to read what I've written. It seriously makes my day when people become a fan of the SKOHRboard Facebook page, share articles with friends, or even just like one of the posts. Keep it up and don't be afraid of it if you haven't tried it yet! I love reading every single one of the comments and will continue to do my best to respond to all of them. Thanks again for reading and don't forget to tell your friends to check the SKOHRboard!
