This year is already shaping up to be our best one yet! Derby Frontier started 2014 with 37,609 visitors and in just over two months we have seen 65,195 (as of 12:42 PM today) people from around the world read, share, view and comment on posts on the blog.
It wasn’t too long ago that there were just a handful of visitors to the blog exclusively from Saskatchewan and now we’re interacting with thousands upon thousands of truly amazing people from across the globe! It began with a simple post highlighting a few upcoming events in August of 2012 and has since become something much greater than anything we could have ever fathomed. This is certainly thanks to the thousands of skaters, officials, fans, leagues, teams, announcers, coaches, trainers, magazines, newspapers, radio stations and other blogs from not only Canada but from all across the world. To everyone who has read, shared, tweeted or linked to any of the posts on Derby Frontier, THANK YOU. Your constant support and encouragement has kept this blog going and has been a catalyst to us making the changes needed in order to ensure it is the best resource and news blog that it can be for this sport.
In the coming years, Derby Frontier will continue to follow its mission and goals while discussing challenging topics and promoting this sport in an honest light.
Finally, we’d like to thank all of my interviewees, the generous photographers that gave me permission to share their work, the leagues and organizations that have donated merchandise/goods for our giveaways and contests and the provincial derby community of Saskatchewan for being their, cheering us on and pushing us forward toward greater successes!
Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for information about the 500/100,000 K Giveaway to celebrate this new milestone!
