4700 new followers overnight!

Also a reminder that everyone starts somewhere.Here's a milestone I posted when I hit 100 followers about how I was copying Steve's style. Never thought 6 months later he'd share my tips:

      Thank you - I currently write every post. But looking to pull together some ideas to allow user generated content. It's hard because my site is known for quality. So don't want to let that slip. Appreciate the support.
