Hi Sonia

I loved reading about the milestones in the life of your blog so far. No need to apologise. My blog is 5 months old so it's fascinating to read how things have developed for you. I found your blog through reading copyblogger - I enjoyed your posts greatly and so subscribed to you. I have written some of your advice on a post-it which is stuck on my monitor. Your writing has helped my writing heaps. Thank you. Olivia

Dave Davis

Congratulations Sonia and congratulations to the remarkable communication blog.

Here's to many more!

Thomas Clifford

Hi Sonia!

Happy Blogday!

I don't remember how I stumbled across your site shortly after you launched it but heck, I'm sure glad I did.

Your appearance at Copblogger is well deserved; I was thrilled for you when I read your first post!

Your posts inspire me to keep writing and find new angles in my topics.

You rock. :-)


Happy Birthday RC!That is a huge accomplishment Sonia.

Just look at how far you came the first year - and think of how much further you can go in the second.

This is one of my top five places to come for information. You've got it where it counts, make it stick!


Happy Birthday, and congratulation on one year! That's awesome!!

Brian Clark

Congrats on a great first year Sonia... hopefully many more to come!

Sonia Simone

Thank you all! My goodness, five of you read far enough to make a comment, that is heartening.

Year two is gonna be even more fun. :)

Sally J.

Congrats, Sonia! In this B-day post, you mention almost all of my favorite online biz writers. My Dream Team, if you will. Thanks for all your sage advice and entertaining writing. Who knew marketing could be (gasp) enjoyable?!

Colleen Wainwright

Jesus Christmas. All this in one year? I have been slacking!

Congrats, and here's to more to come. Now, let's get back to work!

Yael Beeri

Am a relatively new fan but i am here to stay. Happy Birthday ! That is an accomplishmet to be proud of!

Janice C Cartier

Congrats Sonia! Best to you for providing such rich content here and here's to many many seriously stumbled trailblazing fun posts to come.

Sonia Simone

Sally, tell me if there are any of your faves I've missed! If you like 'em, I bet I like 'em.

Yep, I've put hundreds of hours into reducing my own fear and loathing of marketing and reframing it so I could actually love it. Hope to do the same for y'all. :)

Welcome to you, Yael!

Janice, always so nice to have you here.

Sonia Simone

(and Connie and Thomas and, well, all of you. xoxoxo)

Seth Godin

Bit by bit, drip by drip.

Great work triumphs.

Good to have you here. Makes it better for the rest of us.

Sonia Simone

Ha! Thank you, Seth.

Naomi Dunford

Happy birthday, you crazy marketing chick. You RULE.

And congratulations on a well executed piece of Seth-bait. Well played.

Dave Navarro

Hey, I'm here, you didn't even have to bait me. :-p

Congrats on the 1,000 RSS!


Happy Birthday! Don't know you very well, yet.. but have been enjoying your tweets and looking forward to getting to know your blog better! Don't forget to make a wish!


Happy birthday!

I'm a newish reader (last month or two) and don't usually comment but wanted to wish you all the best today.

I was surprised that you only have 1,000 subscribers -- remarkable communication really has excellent content, and you deserve tons of readers! Hoping you'll get plenty more before the next birthday, at least.

Michael Martine

I didn't know you a year ago, but damn am I glad I know you, now! Congrats on a year and your success. Here's to much, much more success in the future!


Congratulations and best wishes for the coming year. RC is a favorite read, as are your posts on CB. Keep it coming.


Sonia Simone

A great big smooch to all of you.


Congrats! I know I don't really know you in real life but having been with the blog since before the table post your success feels like the success of a friend. I am so pleased for you!

Janice Chan

See, way more than three! Congrats on your first year! I really enjoy this blog but have found that if I "subscribe" to something that I am much less likely to read it than something I have bookmarked and can go "take a break" to check. Must be psychological or something. Anyhow, keep on, keep on. I'm looking forward to year 2!

Judy Dunn

Wow, Sonia. What a year.

I am starting my own Savvy Blogging classes in the Seattle community but I know I have such a long, long way to go.

You are what I aspire to be and I hold your blog up as a perfect example of authenticity, usefulness and humor that keep your readers coming back for more.

Congratulations and keep those posts coming!

Sonia Simone

I'm having a Sally Fields moment. :)

Special shout-out to Lizthefair, what a long strange trip it's been . . .

Judy, you're a doll. Just keep writing about what you see and what you experience! We all have a long way to go.

Janice, how funny, I do the same actually. When I subscribe, I feel like I'm all done, and often I don't go back, or I get back only rarely. I have my daily/weekly haunts that I just type in the URL to say hi and see what's up.



Wow wow! Happy birthday. It's so neat to look under the hood of one of my favorite blogs.

I'm glad you took the time to do this post. I know what a pain these are to write!

Many happy returns of the blogday.



Alina Popescu

Hi Sonia, belated happy anniversary to you and your blog! Manny happy returns and hope to see much more of your work both here and on Coppyblogger :)

All the best,

James Chartrand - Men with Pens

Sneaky, sneaky... Three readers my ass. Now everyone's chiming in to say, "HEY!"

So... HEY! I'm here! Congrats, Sonia.


Happy birthday, RC! As a complete flake, I'm late in wishing it, but that doesn't make it less hearfelt. : )

Also, as a total flake, it's taking me longer than it ought to work my way through your archives, but this year-in-retrospect, chock-full of links as it is, will give me some sort of guide.... Thanks!! : )


Very clever Seth-bait,
which was Naomi-bate,
which the MWPs couldn't resist -- and all in a true lesson about comment-bait!

Happy Blogday Sonia, keep up the good work ~

Sonia Simone

Carole, this is a safe zone for flakes of all varieties. :)

Jeffrey Simons

Only a year? Based on the way I instantly got hooked on your blog, I thought you'd been at this a lot longer. Congrats! I'd wish you many happy years of blogging, but at the speed things keep changing, who knows whether we'll even still be blogging in a few years.

Sonia Simone

Who knows, right Jeffrey? Content is content, but the shell can change a lot. It will definitely be interesting to see how that evolves, given the rate of change over the past 10 years.

Todd Smith

I love your blog, Sonia! It's one of the ones I read every time. Thank you for everything and I look forward to great things to come.

Writer Dad

Happy anniversary, happy birthday, and happy blogging. Glad I found you. Have a great weekend.

Drew Kime

Thanks for posting the numbers. I started mine a year ago this November (and *WOW* was my photography bad) without any real plans to make it a regular thing. I started (mostly) regular posting in March of this year, and just topped 600 feed subscribers.

I keep reading about the people who hit multiple thousands within a few months and wonder what I'm doing wrong. It's reassuring to see confirmation that those are the exceptions.

Happy birthday, and here's wishes for many more of the same.
