Thank You for a Wonderful Year!

champagne.jpg Pop the cork!  Today is my one year blog-iversary of Customers Rock!, and I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you!  Without you, my readers, I would just be talking to myself (it’s been known to happen).   Read on to see my plans for thanking you all.

I have had a great time putting these posts together for you, and I am very proud to be a positive blogger.  In other words, I make a real effort to blog on positive examples rather than ranting about all the things that go wrong in the world of marketing, customer service, and customer experience.  I think that you, my readers, like it as well because I get many compliments from you (you are so kind!).  However, my best compliments are the comments I get on my blog; thank you to so many of you for conversing on a regular basis (Lewis, CB, that especially means you, as you are my top commenters!).

To celebrate my first year, I am putting together a free eBook for you to read and share some of my favorite posts.  The finishing touches are going on now, so either leave your name in the comments or send me an email, and I will send it to you when it is out this weekend!  Alternatively, watch my blog, and I will put up a post when it is ready.

Thank you all so much for a great year; here’s to year number 2!

Here are a few stats and interesting facts from my first year:

Number of posts: 175

Number of comments: 977

Total views: 88,716

  1. I’m proud that I’m right behind Mack in saying Congratulations and those are some Rocking! stats!!! Great job and you definitely rock! Thanks for your wonderfully positive perspective, Becky. Here’s definitely to another terrific year.

  2. You’ve been in my ‘read’ list ever since the ambient advertising post on Shaping Youth. Actually, without you, I’d never have found the Age of Conversation crew of kindred spirits either, so thank you AND congrats, Becky…you represent a level of candor and perception that makes me KNOW media/marketing/INTEGRITY needn’t be an oxymoron.
    ‘Rock on’ w/pleasing customers! 😉

  3. Hi, Becky!

    Sorry to have missed the day itself, but as they say better late than never. :) But what I really wanted to say was:

    Congratulations for a one year of empowering customers and business owners and inspiring your fellow bloggers, like me.

    Here’s to more successful years of writing, speaking, and blogging!

  4. It is difficult to find a quality blog these days and when I do I
    try to stay with it, like this one. I hope Becky Carroll is blessed in
    the future and continues to stay on trcak with what she writes, I have
    no doubt she will. Great stats Becky!
    Sincerly, Vincent Cantera

  5. Ooh gosh i just typed a big comment and when i submitted it it came up blank! Please please tell me it worked properly? I dont want to write it again if i do not have to! Either the blog bugged out or i am an idiot, the second option doesnt surprise me lol.
