It’s JobMob’s 7th Birthday!

7 year birthday cake

7 years and counting.

It’s been a strange year.

A few people have even asked whether I’ve lost interest in blogging, or they’ve just come out and said that I seem to be putting in less effort than usual.

The latter is actually true. I did put in less effort this past year than usual. And you can tell:

* JobMob readership continues to grow, albeit more slowly than in recent times, while traffic has dropped significantly both from search engines and social media.
* People are still sharing JobMob articles at a high rate but we’re all suffering more than ever from info-overwhelm, leading fewer people to click through and visit even if they do go on to reshare the link that was first shared with them.

But this isn’t because I’ve lost interest, mind you, not even close. Rather, it was because I’ve been focused on creating an Internet startup company. (Surprised? Tell me in the comments)

You’ll hear more about that soon enough, but in the meantime, change is coming and you can expect me to remove all doubts anyone’s having about my ongoing commitment to you and JobMob.

Next year, I’m going to look back on the best year yet and hopefully you will too.

Count on it.

And it’s already begun…
