Nine years ago today, we went live with our very first blog post here at WU. On a good day back in 2006, we might have seen seven visitors on our site. Fast forward to present day; WU attracted nearly 1 million visitors in 2014, and we put on our first conference!
We want to take this opportunity to thank our valued contributors:
Our sanity-saving Admin Assistants:
Our Twitter Team (@WriterUnboxed):
Our Mod Squad on Facebook (learn more):
And our many Guests.
We want to thank everyone who supported the idea of Writer Unboxed Publishing via the roll-out of Kathleen (Ani) Bolton’s Steel and Song.
We want to thank everyone who participated in our first Un-Conference, for trusting that we’d pull together something worth attending — and repeating, even if that can’t happen every year.
We want to thank the many who’ve helped with a small “subscribers”/repeat donation to WU via PayPal. Donations of as little as $1/month assist with WU’s continuing expenses. (Learn more.)

Finally, thank YOU for being a part of the WU community. We appreciate your visits and especially your comments, which help to create each post’s public record. If you’ve been lurking for a while, we hope 2015 is your year for de-lurking; we want to hear your voice.
We are humbled, awed, and grateful by all we’ve seen here, and by the way WU has grown over the course of nine years. A big slice of virtual cake for all of you. (And, yes, it is chocolate.)
Write on, WU’ers!
