One year ago this month I sat down at my computer and decided to start a blog about capoeira. If you had told me then, that a year later, my words would have been read by thousands of people around the world, I would have laughed at you.
I didn’t set out to become any kind of authority on capoeira–and I’m still nothing of the sort–but I can’t deny that people have and will continue to come here to The Capoeira Blog to read my posts, and I really couldn’t be prouder of what I’ve accomplished.
So, what have I accomplished?
57,000 hits. Almost 1,000 fans on Facebook. An average of 300 page views a day (for the past couple of months). Over 100 posts (though, I wouldn’t mind if this were more). And I’ve met some great people.
Here are some of the top posts from the past year:
And, the fact of the matter is, that I wouldn’t be anywhere if it weren’t for you guys, my wonderful readers, who have supported me, dealt with my breaks, spread the word, and have been willing to actually read what I have to say.
So, to celebrate this milestone,
I’m going to give away one month’s subscription to Learn Capoeira.
How can you get in on this action? It’s easy. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. And when I say comment, I don’t mean just dropping in to say “hi” or something; I’d appreciate it if you took the time to write at least one sentence.
The contest closes on June 9th, and I’ll announce the lucky capoeirista on the 10th. The winner will be chosen by a random winner generator so that all is fair.
So, there you have it. I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride as much as I have, and I hope you’ll stay with me for the next 12 months!
