On the 26. February 2015 we were able to welcome, after about 4 years of blog work, 500 subscribers. Enormous, and a milestone in development. It will not be much more than that was my thought then. The facts are against, the brand Saab in retreat. And I was completely wrong!
Just over a year has passed since then and yesterday we already counted more than 900 readers who subscribed to the blog as a regular reading. We have not doubled within a year, but increased reasonably. A phenomenon for which there is no clear explanation.
The formerly lively international Saab blog scene has lost a lot of its substance in the last few months. Quite a few blogs write only very irregularly, others seem to be disappearing. Saabblog.net has been almost exclusively German for a few weeks, and Germany has never been a home game for Saab. As in recent years, topics are still difficult to find, blogging is demanding work. All of this speaks against a positive development - actually.
Nevertheless, we have more visitors, more subscribers. That does not really fit together and may be a typical Saabian phenomenon. Of the lunatic factorto say it with the late Rolf Bleeker. I do not think another explanation.
Anyway. Mark and I are proud of so many readers and trust in the blog. We are happy and say thank you! Of course, we continue to deliver a colorful mix of topics. The rest of the week remains worth reading. Tomorrow there will be a short Saab test report and on Friday ... Hmm, it will be exciting.
Yes, there is a little tension, again. We show what most likely no reader has seen before. Exclusive, and of course it has to do with Saab.
