2,000th Blog Post

Back in January of 2007 I took the blogging plunge and put up a quick Inaugural Blog Post on WordPress. I started out strong posting several times in the first few weeks, but then gave up on it. Then, 18 months later, on July 20, 2009, I wrote Rethink PowerPoint Presentations with BBP, and that was the start of writing a post every day.

My inspiration for doing a post per day came from AVC.com. After seeing Fred Wilson’s content pop up on a regular basis, and reading his About page, I thought to myself “I want to do that!” Well, I started the daily post and haven’t looked back.

Writing one short blog post per day is such a great way to share ideas, document best practices, and get feedback from smart people. Now, it’s been over five years of writing daily and today marks my 2,000th post. Thank you to everyone for your help and here’s to 2,000 more posts.

  1. Thank you for your diligence and commitment, David. As a regular reader, I find your insights helpful and often share them with others. It can be hard to sustain this kind of commitment over the years, please be encouraged that you are having a big impact!

  2. Congratulations! I really enjoy reading your thoughtful, honest, informative posts. As a 30-year veteran of start-ups, I appreciate the time and energy it takes to do the work at hand, and to layer this personal blog commitment on top of every day’s “to do” list – you are very generous with your experiences and perspectives. Do you get to take one day off now? 😉

  3. Thank you David for your interest and passion towards the entrepreneur community … also, just finished Startup Upstart. Will be using it as a guide as I start my next venture! Cheers!

  4. Thanks David! Your posts are short but excellent at getting key information across in a way anyone could understand … you are like The Daily Show for the start-up world. I am really looking forward to the next 2000 and beyond.

  5. Congrats! Appreciate all the nightly posts. Amazed you maintain such a cadence of quality material… No joke — whenever I feel like I’m running out of steam for my weekly posts, I remember what you do, and I hammer a post out. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Thank you David. And congratulations. After I discovered your posts a few months ago I couldn’t stop reading. You have been sharing a lot of good content with us and it helps a lot in this daily effort to build a better business.
