How My Readership Changed In 2013 + What Do You Want To See In 2014?

The first month of 2014 is almost over and time is flying! As with most years I am always trying to look at tweaks and changes I can make in my business and my life to make the year ahead even better. My blog has always been heavily influenced by reader feedback, which makes a lot of sense for a blog since I’m not writing this to myself!

In 2013 my blog blog readership changed quite a bit. From 2007 – 2012 I would say my audience was about 90% domain name investors. Fast forward to today and it has become a pretty clear 50/50 split between domain investors and startup founders. It has been great to see so many new people find-out about my blog through some of my articles on Medium.


If you don’t know about Medium, you should, along with being the source for many of my new readers last year it’s also a site that I probably now read the most out of any site on the Internet. If you want to learn more about Medium and Ev’s view on the future of media I highly recommend you check-out this article on TechCrunch.

Okay so enough about last year, let’s talk about this year!

I will, as always continue to write articles about domain investing and startups but there have been some other topics that did very well last year that I thought about layering in. One of those is eCommerce, and in fact my most-read post of 2013 was an eCommerce Showdown I did between Magento, Shopify and BigCommerce.

Here are a few topics I’m thinking of adding into the mix:

  • eCommerce
  • Growth Hacking
  • A/B Testing
  • Conversion Optimization
  • Blogging/How To Start + Grow A Blog

Right now all the topics above might get covered a couple times a year but they aren’t a regular topic on the blog. Let me know if you’d like to see more focus on any of these and of course feel free to share anything else you’d like about how to make the best that it can be in 2014!

Comment and let your voice be heard!
