Happy Birthday We Got This Covered! That’s right folks, today marks our 365th day in existence or, our one year birthday. It’s been a long, tough and exhausting struggle but we made it! We have arrived at the one year mark. Our site was born on June 28, 2010 and now, over 1.5 million visitors later, we’ve reached this important milestone. Boasting a strong international audience with readers from over 225 countries, our little site has grown far bigger than any of us could have ever imagined.
In our short one year lifespan, we’ve accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments that allow us the chance to give ourselves a well deserved pat on the back. With contributions from over 100 authors, what started off as a blog has grown into a full fledged website. We are now home to over 3300 posts and one weekly podcast, all of which helped bump us to a Google Page Rank of 4 and an Alexa Rank of 106,374 in just one year.
The site has covered a number of film festivals such as SXSW, Cannes and Sundance as well as the largest gaming convention in the world, E3. Through developing strong contacts at major studios, we’ve been able to bring you interviews with the hottest names in entertainment, such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Bradley Cooper, Paul Giamatti and many more! We’ve also made sure to give back to our fans by hosting over 40 contests!
Really though, we owe everything to you, the readers. We wouldn’t have made it this far had it not been for you. And so, from all of us at We Got This Covered, we’d like to thank each and every one of you. You have made the site into what it is today and your support is appreciated. To thank you for everything, we’re holding a large contest which you can check out here. It’s our way of giving back and saying thanks for sticking with us, through the good times and the bad.
It’s not easy running a website and we don’t pretend that we’re perfect. I’m only human and I know the site has problems. If I were to promise you that one day our site would be among the giants out there I’d be lying because truthfully, it may never be. And that’s okay, because we’re happy where we are. There is one thing that I can promise you though, and that is that we will do our absolute best to continue to provide quality content to you the reader.
Once again, from all the staff at We Got This Covered, thank you! And here’s hoping for another successful year!
