Thank You Readers: Six Years Later, And I’m Still Blogging

Almost six years to the day, I started this blog with the goal of sharing information with other industry insiders and writing about topics not being covered or detailed by the mainstream outlets. My desire has always been to showcase streaming media products and services in the right light and set the proper expectations regarding the streaming media industry, with a focus on the business behind the technology. Little did I know that my blog would turn into a full-time job and that six years later, I ‘d still have so many readers who have an interest in what I have to say.

None of that has been lost on me. My blog still exists because of you and the numerous companies who have or continue to sponsor the blog and the vendors who help me with stories, pitch me topics to write about and help me with data. I have all of you to thank. Even if you haven’t always agreed with what I thought, many readers have made the effort to let me know why and turned the blog into a real discussion outlet, with over 10,000 comments left to date. In turn, those comments help us all and allow others besides me to inform, educate and empower others.

As a one-man show, I have no editor, and I’ll be the first to admit that my grammar needs work. But that’s been the beauty of the blog, with readers accepting what I write even though it’s not always the most polished. But by now, most know that’s how I write and talk about the industry, without sugar-coating anything and trying to keep it practical and real-world at all times. With the blog averaging 100,000 page views a month, none of that would be possible without loyal readers, who in my mind, are the ones who have made the blog successful.

Thank you for your support over the years and remember that I take my responsibility to the industry very seriously. I answer all calls. I accept all briefing requests. I return all emails and messages. And I’m always available via email or my cell (917-523-4562) to answer any questions or connect you with people smarter than me. If there is anything I can do to assist you or your company in the use, adoption, or understanding of streaming media technology, at any time, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Thank you for your continued interest and support of the blog.
