500th DBW Expert Blog Post!

Expert publishing blog opinions are solely those of the blogger and not necessarily endorsed by DBW.

This is the 500th DBW Expert Publishing Blog post. Anti-climactic, I know, but here we are.

In about 600 days (including weekends), we’ve had roughly 75 different folks from all over the ebook publishing landscape voice their opinions, ask questions and even sometimes break news. That’s about five posts every six days.

In that time, some of the blog posts have been among our most popular across the entire site, including our digital publishing news and newswire. Some examples:

What the new Penguin Random House Logo Might Look Like

The Top Ten Mistakes Writers Make When Self-Publishing a Book

Ebooks Are Actually Not Books — Schools Among First to Realize

Why You Should Respond to Negative Reviews

Visualizing the Data of Stephen King

These are the five most popular Expert Publishing Blog Posts of all time and they’re all in the top-25 pages over the past two years — among the 3,000+ articles we’ve published in that time.

The blog has been one of the main drivers of DBW more than quintupling its audience over the past two years. In a way, it mirrors some of the trends we’re seeing in publishing right now. It wasn’t until recently that small publishers and authors could reach a wide audience with a book and some simple self-publishing technology. Likewise, this blog gives folks who may not have a megaphone of their own one to use to bring their creativity and ideas to the world.

I’d like to thank all the fantastic authors, subjects and armies of commenters. Keep it coming!

Here’s to the next 500 blog posts.
