I love milestones, and in particular, I really love the milestone that BiggerPockets just accomplished.
A few hours ago, BiggerPockets.com registered its 25,000th Member
When I announced our 20,000th member back in August, I didn’t expect to hit the 25k mark so soon thereafter.
What can I say . . .
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR MEMBERS AND VISITORS
This has been quite a year for BiggerPockets! We started ’08 with a brand new social networking engine to add to our forum-based website, and close to a year later we’re growing like a steroid infused muscle! The vast amount of sheer knowledge shared on our site is beyond compare. Couple that with the deals happening here, the marketing and networking opportunities, and it is easy to see why people are really starting to jump on board. Our new front page says it all, “25,014 people are currently networking their way to real estate success… Are you?”
As I do each time we hit a landmark, I like to take a minute to point out some key people who make it all happen. Thanks to Julie, Edd & Rob (my saviors), Charles & Joe (my brain trust), NDC (my diligent server team), all the people on the back end of things (the lawyers, accountants, Sparky, etc.), my AWESOME moderation team headed up by Jon Holdman (the man!), my kick ass bloggers (check out all those cool people in the blog’s sidebar), my donors, and to everyone else who’se help to spread the word about BiggerPockets in the media, Twitterverse, and blogosphere! You guys make this place work!
Now that we’ve successfully crossed that threshold, we’re on to bigger and better things, as always. We’ve got HUGE plans for 2009 and we’re sure that our membership at this time next year will dwarf the current number. We’ll continue doing what we do and bust our humps bringing you the best site imaginable for real estate networking, knowledge sharing, deal making, and marketing.
I’d love to stay and chat, but I’ve got a site to improve!
