We’re going to be putting out a press release about this next week. But I wanted to share with you in advance some numbers about TPM’s growth over the last year.
In March, year over year, TPM’s audience grew by 79%. Put more concretely, TPM had 79% more unique visitors in March 2010 than we did in March 2009.
For the 1st quarter of 2010 as a whole, the growth rate was 48%.
As you can imagine, we’re pretty excited about those numbers. First, because we think it shows we’re providing a quality and breadth of news coverage that people are hungry for and trust. Second, because those numbers mean more resources which we’re going to be able to use to hire more reporters and fine-tune and upgrade everything about the site that has brought us this far.
If you’re new to TPM, thanks. We literally couldn’t have done it without you. If you’re an old-timer, thanks just as much. Because you got us here. We’ll have more details next week.
