Today is the day. On June 1st, 2011 Steve K’s Vaping World launched with all of two articles (one of which eventually became the about page). The original site was on Blogspot and didn’t even have its own domain name.
To be quite honest, I had no idea what would happen. I was early on in my love affair for e-cigarettes and I wanted to exercise a little creativity. I decided to see if I could take the limited amount of gear, plus other things I saw on the net about e-cigarettes and write something coherent about it.
Remembering back to when I started vaping, and the trouble I had finding good resources when Googling for e-cigarettes. I wanted to offer something different from the sites I found (sadly, 1 year later, Google still is not as cooperative as I’d like).
I settled on a pretty aggressive schedule of trying to knock out one post per day, no matter how small and see what happened. I had no idea if anyone would visit the site or if I could keep up the pace.
One year later, I’m quite pleased at where things wound up. This site has come a long way since the early days where I’d be excited when I broke the 10 users per day mark, then 25, 50, 100 etc.
I’ve had a chance to interact with a lot of people along the way. Vendors, other bloggers, and most importantly, readers like you. It’s been a lot of hard work, but I wouldn’t trade a minute of it!
And for that, I want to thank you for reading. I wish I could do something more personal but, alas, this is sort of a broadcast type medium. So please accept this humble post as my heartfelt thanks for your continued support and readership.
Now, before I go, I thought it might be fun to share the first 5 posts I published after the welcome post just to see how far things have come.
