Merci Et Bonne Année from Fred and Julien at OverBlog

Posted by Liva on January 4 2013

Thank you and Happy New Year to you, OverBloggers.

Hi, I’m Frederic Montagnon (call me Fred), OverBlog co-founder and CEO.

This time of year is the perfect opportunity for me to write to you directly and share how grateful I and the OverBlog team are for your support. We truly couldn’t have made it without you.

We reached a few milestones within a really short period of time and we are really thankful to you for that:

- launching the new OverBlog at BlogWorld in New York in June was a challenge but we made it, with great feedback from Robert Scoble and Sarah Perez.

- just like that, from scratch, you became our second largest user base in the world and we are now happy to be the personal destination page of choice to over 200 000 of you (don’t fret, that’s for the new version only), thank you for choosing us as a blogging platform

- From NYC to Miami, LA, Coralville (Iowa), Boston, and soon Vegas and San Francisco, I make it a personal commitment to travel with my team to meet as many of you as possible to understand what you need.

OverBlog has evolved a lot and there’s always more to look forward to.

It’s not always easy to make everything happen but please keep on feeding us with ideas and comments. And how about a challenge -- how about becoming the first user base of OverBlog?

I’ll tell you how you can make it happen: keep writing, keep sharing. With the OverBlog iPhone app, this should be playful and easy. And if it isn’t -- let me know. Take us with you!

As I said just before, I’m still on the road meeting as many of you as possible. This week and next, we’ll be at NMX in Las Vegas then we’ll travel to San Francisco. Victor Canada, whom you already know, has become a huge enthusiast and will be coming with us as an OverBlog Ambassador at NMX. I’ll be speaking about taking your blogging skills to a global level with Amy Vernon on Monday 7th, at 10.30 -- we will have a special guest joining us too: Chris Heuer, founder of Social Media Club. If you’re around for the conference, we’ll be at the booth, right in the middle of the exhibition floor with goodies galore to thank you. I believe you will meet the one and only Linda Bernstein, aka @wordwhacker if you visit us!

It’s been amazing, it’s been fun, let’s do even better.

Thank you for your posts, insights, videos, interviews...: Anne Tran, Maria de Los Angeles aka @ViceQueenMaria, Anne Reuss, Bill Hartzer, Chris Voss, Nick Westergaard, Jason Falls, Linda Bernstein, Stephanie Grayson, Nonishanay Cavaliere, Peter Bordes, Robert Moore, and many, many more.

Fred

P.S.: Here's just one of the incredible and fun things we did this year, meeting with Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg. On the right, Julien Romanetto, OverBlog co-founder and COO.
