Happy Fourth Birthday, No Treble!
Every May 2nd, I like to celebrate No Treble’s birthday with a story.
Each year’s story is exciting to me, and looking back, it is even more exciting at how far this thing I once called a “little experiment” has come.
We’ve also now published over 5,560 stories, videos, columns, lessons and features. We have some exciting new things in the works for 2013, and we can’t wait to tell you about them.
Today, No Treble is visited by 130,000 people a month, who visit 240,000 times a month. We’d be nothing without you all, and I’d like to thank you first for making this what it is today.
Of course, we’d also be nothing without the incredible group of contributors – past and present – who work to bring the greatest bass-focused stories, lessons, advice and more to readers every day. I’m blown away by all of them, and it is an honor to work with them. Here’s the current lineup:
- Kevin “Mr. Crush It” Johnson (Managing Editor and even more, a great great friend)
- Damian Erskine (Ask Damian Erskine and App reviews)
- Donovan Stokes (The Lowdown with Dr. D)
- Ryan Madora (I Wish I Knew That and Blues Bass columns)
- Thomas “MarloweDK” Risell (Bass lessons)
- Flemming Dørken (who converses frequently with our Twitter friends, and shares some great Videos. He also has the distinction of being the “official 1st friend of No Treble”)
- Sara and Kayla – my daughters – who have worked hard on making things hum with the No Treble Shop, not to mention believing in their dad from day one on this project.
- And all the past contributors who have shared their knowledge and enthusiasm too.
One of my favorite things about No Treble is that we get to meet and feature so many great bassists around the world, whether it is through our weekly spotlight, our Old School series or one of our daily video features. If you haven’t shared your story or your music with us yet, I encourage you to do so.
We’d love to hear from you, on how we’re doing. What have you enjoyed here? What would you like to see us do more? Please tell us about it in the comments.
Most of all, thank you for your friendship, readership, comments and for spreading the word. It means the world to us.
