Mumbrella is two

Mumbrella turns two today.

Our first post was published on the afternoon of December 9, 2008.

Editor Tim Burrowes opened with an expectations-limiting promise:

“One thing I’ve noticed is that whenever you go to a newish blog, the first posting is invariably rubbish. It usually makes a lame promise about what it’s going to be (invariably controversial and hard-hitting), and how often it will be updated (frequently). The original promise is very rarely kept. Often the site looks like the author never went back. (Actually there are a couple of mine that look a little like that…)

“So there will be no such grandiose claims here.

“My aim is somewhat simpler. I’m going to be amusing myself by writing about the media and marketing world, and linking to some of the very excellent content out there, both locally and internationally.

Since then, we’ve:

  • Written 6,150 posts
  • Had 43,371 comments
  • Recorded 53 Mumbrellacasts
  • Produced 104 episodes of The Mumbo Report
  • Had our YouTube videos viewed 1,380,929 times
  • received five lawyers’ letters
  • Had 3,805,450 visits
  • Delivered 7,604,812 page impressions
  • Employed six people
