Today we hit the 500,000 visits mark on Chillin’Competition, so we just wanted to say THANKS!
Nicolas started this on March 2009, and I joined a few months later, in October (with a guest corner at the time). It’s been 4 years, 765 posts, 1 or 2 interesting posts, 763/4 nonsense ones, 1,050 comments, 1042 Linkedin group members, 506 WordPress subscribers, and a few hundred hours of telephone calls [during which I tried to
censor persuade Nico not to publish some stuff (one I can tell you about is the proposal to do the EU competition law version of this) and he complained at my (alleged) lack of political incorrection], $ 72.08 of AdWords earnings and $ 65 spent in preserving the chillingcompetition.com domain (that’s a $7 profit in 4 years, or $ 0,02 per hour spent writing here; as you see, we’re still struggling with the notion of opportunity costs…). Below’s the wordpress table depicting our evolution.
P.S. Nico has committed to pay you all a beer when we hit 1 million…
