Happy Birthday to Us – The B-Town Blog Turns Five Years Old Today!
Posted By Scott Schaefer On December 11, 2012 @ 7:30 am In Burien News,Business,Headlines,Life | Comments Disabled
Five years ago today (at 9:03 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2007 to be exact), Burien resident Scott Schaefer  founded The B-Town Blog (flashback to our first post here) , and we’d like to celebrate by thanking YOU – our Readers and Advertisers – without whom this venture would not be possible!
In those short five years, we’ve grown into South King County’s leading News, Events, Arts, Entertainment and more website, with a recent average of between 65,000 ~ 71,000 Unique Visits per month (or approximately 103,000/month for our network of six local blogs).
From humble beginnings, The B-Town Blog has expanded into South King Media , which also includes other media properties, like:
‘HYPERLOCAL’ INTERNET RADIO:
ONLINE LOCAL SHOPPING SITE (partnership with Buck ):
COMING SOON – ORIGINAL SHORT FILM (partnership with Steve Edmiston):
Since we’ve got cake all over our faces and are in a self-indulgent mode, we’d also like to take a moment to point out that we’re the only local blog in the entire Northwest to also be awarded as “Best Hyperlocal Website ” by the Society of Professional Journalists for two consecutive years!
Of course, no operation like this could be run consistently without a great team – the folks behind Burien’s original and first local blog include:
Of course, our success is also due to people like Janet Grella – our first Sales Manager, as well as Joy Steele, along with others we hope we didn’t forget to mention!
And finally, we’d like to take a moment to posthumously honor the memory of Writer/Sales Rep Margaret Ryan , who was tragically killed Nov. 13.
As Actor Ed Asner said in the role of Lou Grant during a classic episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Margaret “had spunk!”
But unlike Lou, we LOVED Margaret’s spunk! She is missed by us all…
