Here’s to a Successful First Year!

Posted: September 24, 2016 in .NET Architecture


To my Loyal Readers: 

I published my very first Möbius Straits article approximately one year ago, with an original goal of courting the technical intellect of a just a few savvy thought leaders.  In retrospect, this exercise helped me remember just how difficult it is to stay committed to a long-term writing initiative.  To aggravate things just a bit more, my hobbies are motorcycling, music, food and travel…and none of these things align incredibly well with creative technical writing.

So, in an attempt to evade a potential degradation of creativity and writer’s block, I experimented with a number of things, including co-creating a small writing group encouraging individuals to write articles based upon their own unique interests.  This, in turn, offered me a dedicated block of time to work on my own material, spurring my productivity for a while.  The bottom line is that I forced myself to find time to write about things that I thought the technical community might find both relevant and interesting.  In my humble opinion, there is no greater gift than sharing what you know with someone else who can benefit from your experience and expertise. 

Regardless, I now find myself embarking on my second year of creative technical writing, and as I pour through the first year’s readership analytics, I’m very enthusiastic about what I see.  For example, over the past four months, Möbius Straits has found a steady footing of 600-650 readers per month.  What I’ve also discovered is that many of you are returning readers representing over 130 countries from around the World.  Also, with five days still left in September, this month’s readership is projected to reach over 700 unique visitors for the first time ever.


Finally, from a holistic standpoint, the data is even more exciting, as the total number of non-unique Möbius Straits’ visits has grown almost 800% since January 1, 2016 (see the chart below), suggesting a very strong and loyal monthly following.  I am without words, maybe for the first time ever, and cannot thank you enough for your ongoing patronage.  As I mentioned in my original paragraph, it can be difficult to stay committed to a long-term writing initiative; however, your ongoing support is more than enough inspiration to keep me emotionally invested for another year.  I really owe this to you.  Once again, thank you so much.  Love!



Thanks for reading and keep on coding! 🙂
