Thank You, Everyone for Reading FlowingData

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

A few days ago, FlowingData’s subscriber count shot up to 3,100+ subscribers, moving past the three thousand mark for the first time. I just wanted to take this chance to thank everyone for reading. Thank you. FlowingData wouldn’t be the same without you, and I’m really happy with the community that’s developing around this modest, little blog of mine, or maybe I should say of ours.

Thank you for reading, thank for commenting, thank you for linking here, and thank you for sending me post ideas. I appreciate it ALL. FlowingData is well on its way to 5,000.
