Hot damn… how the heck are we at 2,000 posts now? You figure that, on average, we post stories at about 850 words each – that is 1,700,000 words that we have added to the internet collective. Not too shabby.
About the first 1,000 posts or so were just me, doing my thing, trying to keep AirlineReporter going. Now, we have over 15 writers who contribute (some big and some small) to keep the posts flowing.
I think one of the things that still surprises me is which stories are popular. There are times where we will travel halfway across the world, do a great story, and it just doesn’t take off (pun intended). Then another story I think will be a throw-away (aka “omg we have no story ready today, we need to post something”) and it turns out to be quite popular.
That is why we keep trying to do new things and tell new stories to see how they go (as in recently trying to get more into commercial space travel). Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. We are already grateful that you, the readers, are open with us in what you like and don’t like as far as content is concerned.
