WOW! Bringing you the 200th issue!

For those who are keen to know a little history. WDW’s first issue was sent out on the 1st of July 2011 with about 15 subscribers. That’s over 4 years ago! Today, the subscriber count is around 23,400 and growing on an average of 150 a week. Each week contains about 20 links, so that’s about 4,000 awesome links that have been sent out worldwide.

To think that over 23,000 people let me email them once a week is truly astounding. This is something that I cherish and gives me the incentive to continue to make sure each and every issue of WDW is top notch.


So what does the future hold…

Well, to be honest, I’m a little disappointed with myself. This is because, for the last 8 months, I have been working away with a friend on “a little something” that isn’t quite ready. The plan was to launch on the 200th issue, but as I’m sure you will all understand, things take time… All going well, I hope to have some news for you all on this front in the next 6 to 8 weeks.

I’m also extremely keen to give the blog some much needed attention. Over the last few weeks, I have been migrating hosting providers so I’ve had to put the blogging on hold. However, the amount of ideas I am keen to write about is seriously stupid. I just need the time…

I also have a range of ideas to improve the newsletter, but the main focus is to continue to hit the send button every Friday for many, many more weeks to come!


If you have enjoyed receiving the weekly newsletter, it would be awesome if you could take the time, as a thank you of sorts, to help get the word out. Hopefully, in the near future, I will then be able to reach my goal of working on it full time, and bring you an even better WDW each week!

Without further ado, go forward and build awesome stuff.
