AboutBoulder.com has been doing exceptionally well recently. It has grown faster than we ever could have imagined, and continues to exceed our expectations every coming day. AboutBoulder is the go-to website for both Boulder and Boulder County and it has lots to offer.
First of all, we now have over 20 columnists. That’s twenty different people with different areas of expertise, all posting about the great happenings around Boulder. Our categories now range anywhere from business, cycling, food, yoga, health, coffee, and so many more. There’s something here for everyone, and each of our columnists bring fresh and unique blogs on a weekly basis in order to create a more diverse outlook on Boulder County.

Two of our new columnists, Joseph Wirth and Travis Bildahl, are introducing a project that is similar to the wildly successful Humans of New York. Joseph has started “Faces of Boulder,” where he interviews Boulder locals and then takes incredible pictures of them (see picture below). It’s a whole new way of exploring Boulder, and we’re very excited to say it’s happening exclusively on AboutBoulder’s website.

All of this has really impacted traffic to our site as well. On Facebook, we now have over 1,700 likes and we’re getting up to a thousand visits to the website per day. It’s incredibly exciting seeing these numbers, which have grown immensely over the last few months. Our unique visitors has more than quadrupled since January.

If that’s not all, AboutBoulder is even responsible for a couple of our interns getting substantial jobs. David Westreich, one of our first writers on the website, even published a book.

Overall, there’s a wealth of reasons to be excited about the website. We couldn’t have done this without all of our loyal readers, and for everyone reading this right now, we thank you for helping us get to where we are today.

I’ll end this blog with a beautiful picture of the aspens changing.
