The Positivity Blog is 5 Years Old

This month the Positivity Blog is 5 years old.

It feels strange to write that. The years I've spent writing here seem to have zipped by so fast. And it feels strange to be where I am today with this site.

Back in the fall of 2006 I started this site mostly just for fun and to share my own thoughts on personal development. And I thought that maybe with some luck I could get a couple of hundred people to regularly read what I had written. Perhaps I could even help some of those people out while finding more clarity in my own life and while growing as a person.

Well, things went a bit better than that. Some of my articles took off pretty quickly on social media sites like Digg. And from there things started to really move.

Today the site has over 10000 visitors a day and over 45000 subscribers. That’s just crazy. Just imagining that thousands of people sit by their computers, cell phones, iPads and read my posts boggles my mind. It’s just amazing to me.

And I really want to thank you for helping me to get here. I want to thank you for all the support, for all the comments and insights you have added to my articles, for the clarifying and helpful criticism, for sending along something you found useful on the site to a friend, for picking up one of my premium guides and for all the emails.

I don’t know how many emails I have gotten so far. But it is a lot and I really love how heartfelt and genuine the emails are. So many of you have been so kind to offer to help me out for free with all kinds of things, to invite me to tea if am ever in your town, to share your story and how you have found some help on the site and just wanted to say thanks.

All of those things mean so much so me. So again, thank you!

  • You know you’re living right when you look back at the past few years and realize that you’ve exceeded your own expectations. Helping other people do the same is even better, and I’m really, really happy for you! Good work and congratulations, man!

    Happy Birthday!

  • Congrats a trillion times for having completed 5 years of blogging on this site! Your posts have always been inspirational and helpful :)

    I am very happy for your successfull 5 years positive blog. You are an umbrella to me and for over 10000 people today. I wish you a congratulation in advance

    Henrik, thank you for being ordinary, for rising above all expectations, and for creating something truly awesome. The world is a more positive place because of you.

  • Congratulations! You’ve put in a lot of work on this site, provoked discussion and debate, and I hope you can look back and see you’ve made a positive difference.

  • Now here’s a piece of inspiration if I ever saw one! Congratulations!

  • I haven’t been around for all 5 years but I’m still happy for you.

    I have been playing around online for about 4 years myself and I can’t seem to stick with anything that I start. I made the decision to change that for good about a month ago, though.

    My blog has a similar niche and just like you, I started it as a way to express my thoughts. I do hope to have as much success as you have.

    Nonetheless, this must be a great feeling for you. Keep on moving. Hopefully, on the day you make your 10 year post, I can talk about my 5 year mark. :)

    Enjoy year 6, my friend.

    Congrats Henrik, that’s quite a milestone! Yours is one of my favorite blogs. I’m so glad I found my way here a few months ago. Your posts are consistently excellent and filled with information that can truly make a difference in our lives. Great work! Best wishes, G

    Happy Birthday:-):-):-)

  • Congratulations. I have been blogging for a month, and would love to be in this position in five years’ time.

    I have a question for you. On 9 May 2008, you gave a number of Gandhi quotes. Where do they come from? There is so much on the Interweb, how do we know they are from Gandhi?

    • I can’t remember exactly where I got them but I think found them on major quote sites like perhaps thinkexist.com

      Best of luck with your blog!

  • Thank you all for the kind words! :)

  • Happy birthday Henrik! And many happy returns :)

  • Henrik – congratulations on working for such a great cause. I’ve been quietly following the Positivity Blog for a long time and it’s always been an inspiration! Keep up the great work and I look forward to another 5 years!
