I must admit, I’m not one for introductions, so I’ll keep this short.
It’s been quite a year. This time last year The Next Web was averaging 120,000 unique visitors/month, whereas this month we’ve surpassed 600,000. We’ve signed an exciting ad deal, got 110,000+ Twitter followers and we’re making front pages of sites like Techmeme, Digg, Reddit and Hacker News more frequently than ever. We’ve got an established team and readership and are experiencing growth any publication would be proud of…we are naturally delighted.
That said, one of the consequences of such growth is we’ve slowly but surely been unable to pay as much attention to our roots, the European marketplace and its startups. Today, that changes, and with the launch of TNW: Europe , we’ll be doing our best to give Europe the attention it so richly deserves.
I’m delighted to be taking the reign here as Editor in Chief as well as on TheNextWeb.com, and although that might change in the near future, I do need your help. Aside from subscribing to our Twitter / Facebook and RSS feed, there are two ways you can do so:
1) Send us tips about you, your startups and information you think Europe and the world should know about. You can do so via [email protected].
2) If you’d like to write for us, in whatever language and in whatever capacity (full time or part), we’d love to hear about what you can bring to the team. Please send an email to [email protected] with some information about your passions, written language skills and links to your writing.
As TNW’s Editor in Chief, I can’t begin to tell you how passionate and proud I am to be part of this new stage of growth. Thank you for your everlasting support.
