This month Stickboy Bangkok celebrates five years online as a full-time entity with lots of thrills and spills along the way.
Many thought it would be a flash in the pan, here today, gone tomorrow but time tells a different story. I was a man with a plan and was on a mission to reach certain targets and for the best part all those boxes have been ticked, and more.
For the most part this is a great job, and believe me, this is work, a lot of hard work at times, but rewarding watching it grow and grow bigger year in, year out.
From a reach of about 80,000 in its first month to over 8 million in March 2019 just for Stickboy alone shows that hard work does pay off.
As I said, that is just Stickboy.
In the past 12 months, Stick Media has acquired numerous other websites and social media properties, all very well-known and popular that add at least another 4-5 million monthly eyeballs.
All the Stick Media properties run independently of each other to prevent any “cross contamination” – some love Stickboy but there are plenty who hate and despise what I do.
Hey, you gotta take the good with the bad, right?
So what are my plans for the year ahead?
Keep on working, keep on growing and take whatever steps necessary to entertain readers and if that means evolving content and making changes, then so be it, that is what I will do.
Nothing sits still, especially the web, so it is my job to try and stay one step ahead of the rest as new websites pop up on a weekly basis.
As for the thrills and spills of running Stickboy I mentioned in the opening paragraph, let’s save that stuff for another day and head out for a celebratory drink or three.
