On a chilly November 19th in 1999 EzineArticles.com was born. Today marks our 8th birthday. :-)
Frankly, today snuck up on us and we’ve been so busy behind-the-scenes that we didn’t plan any big party or promotion to celebrate this milestone.
I wish we could recognize our 7 or 8 year members but the reality is that our website was completely re-designed and re-launched in August of 2004 and we didn’t have members till October of 2004.
So for fun, let’s recognize our first member to sign up: Cathy Stucker, yes, the Idea Lady.
Ironically, Cathy is one of the less than 5 experts that I’ve worked with to help with new product creation and I’ll be doing a free teleclass with Cathy the evening of November 27th. Topic? Giving away many secrets included in her Cash Content Formula training guide… more about that another day.
After Cathy, we’ve had 119,791 membership sign up requests (as of a minute ago) and over 74,500+ members who’ve had their articles accepted…ok, so I guess we’re pretty picky on the quality thing. :-)
Anyway, for more birthday fun trivia: Alexandria K. Brown, The EzineQueen was our first article accepted in August of 2004: 11 Things You MUST Know Before Hiring a Copywriter!
In summary, Happy 8th Birthday to all stakeholders in the EzineArticles Team, Members, Family and Friends!
