Fellowship Writers Community Stats: Week 10

The community has grown to nearly 400 members in 10 short weeks.

An average of 40 new members are joining our community every week. This is an incredible accomplishment. It is a level of growth that was unimaginable in the early weeks of our publication. In those days, we struggled to gain our first 50 members. If memory serves correct, it took us nearly three weeks to hit that 50 member milestone, but here we are, ready to eclipse that marker every week!

At this point, we are more than a publication.

We are a tribe. A company. A circle. A group of dedicated writers who strive to help each other with no-strings-attached. The proof is the pudding. Check out each featured story, and you will find a consistent, dedicated group of members commenting, encouraging, and inspiring. There is no better example of a “relational” platform than our community. It reminds me of the words of the founder of Medium:

“Another form of relational media on the web is blogging — especially in the early days. One of the things I loved about blogging back then — and that people enjoy about writing newsletters today — is the feeling that you’re publishing to a relatively consistent group of people who care what you have to say. Even if it’s a small group.” — Ev Williams

Finally, as we continue to grow, I will take periodic opportunities to thank the dedicated individuals who participate regularly. They are the reason our community continues to flourish.

So, without further adieu.

Thank you for your dedication. Thank you for your feedback. Thank you for your participation and contribution. Thank you for your encouragement. And, most importantly, thank you for your positivity.

It has been a great first ten weeks. Here is to many more successful weeks together!

Kind regards,
