It seems like yesterday when I started this website and it has been nine months already. We crossed the “One Hundred Thousand” milestone in August and in two months, we are two Hundred Thousand strong!
When I started this website, I really didn’t have any clear goals or strategy. I had just resigned from Psychomilk and yet my love for writing reviews was staring right back at me. The BL Xpress was obviously an attempt to give voice to my opinions. I need to thank ZombieSlimFast, because he kept pushing me to move ahead with this project. Frankly, I was quite nervous about handling a new website all by myself, but ZombieSlimFast trusted me. It was this trust and fervent support, that has led to our phenomenal growth in the past few months. This post would be incomplete, if I didn’t appreciate my dear friend, Kdarlings. Her reviews and opinion pieces are an artwork, transcending beyond boundaries, while connecting with our reader’s hearts.
Our success belongs to the other members of our team as well- Yarnball, PotatoBLChild, Mycelle Love and BLBlissAuthor. I love exploring different themes with each of them. It might be a learning curve but all of them keep surprising me every day and frankly, it is an entirely riveting experience. All our team members are busy individuals; some are students while others are working. Despite their busy schedule, they have never failed me nor our readers. At times, I can be a control freak, so I’m also learning to be more patient and rely on their instincts.
September bought a new surprise as one of my closest friends and popular book reviewer, Prats decided to join our website. I have always been a huge fan of her writing style and getting to work with her is sheer pleasure. We are also expecting some new team members, so keep watching this space for the latest additions to our colorful team.
