Ten years ago, in April 2000, we emailed our first issue of the Woodworker’s Journal eZine. We sent it out to just under 30,000 woodworkers – whose email addresses we had to scrounge, borrow and beg. Now, there are around 250,000 of you, and for that we are very thankful.
My first plan for my editorial was to come up with a top 10 list of eZine accomplishments. But after a bit of thought, I decided to simply say thank you to all of you readers who have made our success possible. And, while 10 years of publishing on the Internet is no small accomplishment (in Internet years, it’s only slightly less than our sponsor Powermatic’s 90th anniversary next year), there is really only one reason we are still around: You, our readers, who check in with us every two weeks, put up with my sophomoric sense of humor and offer us interesting and important feedback. So thank you so much … and I sincerely hope that you will choose to stay with us for another 10 years.
