Perfect Duluth Day hit a milestone today at 4:28 p.m. when the user “emmajoru” created an account and made the post below about the Low concert. PDD now has 1,000 contributors.
This is kind of a meaningless number in some ways, because not all 1,000 contributors have actually contributed. Some people create an account and never post. And, of course, only a small percentage of readers bother to create an account and become a contributor, because the only reason to have an account is to create a post. Anyone can read or comment without an account.
Nonetheless, big even numbers are fun, so I thought I’d share this milestone.
It took just over two years to reach 1,000 contributors. Although PDD is approaching its eighth year, we started over at zero contributors in 2009 when the site switched to the Word Press publishing platform.
By the way, anyone who thinks “emmajoru” should win $1,000 should contribute $1,000 to PDD. For now, thanks to “emmajoru” and all of our users, lurkers, commenters and random people who find our site by searching Google Images for “bong.”
