Customers Rock!

A blog about customers, their experiences, and how businesses can make sure their customer experiences rock!

Thank You for a Wonderful Year!

Posted by Becky Carroll on December 7, 2007

champagne.jpg Pop the cork!  Today is my one year blog-iversary of Customers Rock!, and I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you!  Without you, my readers, I would just be talking to myself (it’s been known to happen).   Read on to see my plans for thanking you all.

I have had a great time putting these posts together for you, and I am very proud to be a positive blogger.  In other words, I make a real effort to blog on positive examples rather than ranting about all the things that go wrong in the world of marketing, customer service, and customer experience.  I think that you, my readers, like it as well because I get many compliments from you (you are so kind!).  However, my best compliments are the comments I get on my blog; thank you to so many of you for conversing on a regular basis (Lewis, CB, that especially means you, as you are my top commenters!).

To celebrate my first year, I am putting together a free eBook for you to read and share some of my favorite posts.  The finishing touches are going on now, so either leave your name in the comments or send me an email, and I will send it to you when it is out this weekend!  Alternatively, watch my blog, and I will put up a post when it is ready.

Thank you all so much for a great year; here’s to year number 2!

Here are a few stats and interesting facts from my first year:

Number of posts: 175

Number of comments: 977

Total views: 88,716

First commenter: Mack Collier on my Harley-Davidson post (within 2 hours of my posting it – amazing, Mack!)

First link from another blogger: Mack Collier in his Viral Community News (thanks!)

    Thank you for sharing the past year with us. Your posts are fabulous! Congratulations.

  10. Many congrats Becky, and thank you 😉

  11. You’ve been in my ‘read’ list ever since the ambient advertising post on Shaping Youth. Actually, without you, I’d never have found the Age of Conversation crew of kindred spirits either, so thank you AND congrats, Becky…you represent a level of candor and perception that makes me KNOW media/marketing/INTEGRITY needn’t be an oxymoron.
    ‘Rock on’ w/pleasing customers! 😉

  12. Hi, Becky!

    Sorry to have missed the day itself, but as they say better late than never. 🙂 But what I really wanted to say was:

    Congratulations for a one year of empowering customers and business owners and inspiring your fellow bloggers, like me.

    Here’s to more successful years of writing, speaking, and blogging!
