Today is a big, big day for LiP. A milestone has been achieved on the site!
LiP is about 5 1/2 years old now. LiP started out as a small site, but it grew quite rapidly. The first 6 months saw little traffic on the site, not many visitors and not much group participation on the site.
After about 6 or 7 months, I convinced Feyma to write on the site as well. Within about 2 more months, I brought on 2 or 3 other writers, and that has continued over the past 4 years or so. Today, I feel that we have a very strong group of writers here on the Live in the Philippines Web Magazine.
What is the milestone?
So, what is the big milestone on LiP? We have just hit a mark that few websites hit. As of a few minutes ago, Live in the Philippines got it’s 100,000th comment! Yes, there are now more than 100k comments on this site! Few websites even achieve this goal, and I am quite proud of it.
But, this is not an achievement of mine alone. This is a big achievement for every writer on LiP, and also for the LiP family. Every person who has left a comment here has a hand in this achievement. I want to thank every one of you for your contribution to LiP, and making it the number one website about Living in the Philippines. That position cannot be challenged, even just based on community participation on the site! LiP was one of the original websites on this topic niche, and it is my goal to continue to hold the very top spot in that niche.
With the continued help of the great community here, there is no doubt that goal will continue to be a reality!
Congratulations, everybody, on hitting the big 100K in the number of comments!
