It’s been a full season since I started Celtics Down Under back in September 2012. While it hasn’t exactly been a raving success, I’m happy that it’s slowly blossomed into a community for Aussie Celtics.
As of today:
- @CelticsDownUnd Twitter followers: 443
- Celtics Down Under on Facebook likes: 330
- Celtics Down Under website, highest page views: 227 (day), 1515 (month)
- Website’s top post (aside from the About page): Michael’s Could Another Big Man Be The Answer?
Not exactly the Larry O’Brien trophy of milestones, nonetheless encouraging. Encouraging, because I got to know many other Australian Celtic fans along the way, who in turn have come to know of many other fellow fans. All of us cheered, ranted, laughed and screamed together in the past months, watching our favourite team struggle its way into the postseason, and ultimately run out of gas. Not the best of endings, but it could have been worse. We went out with grit, and did not surrender.
It really feels great, knowing that none of this would have happened, had I not made the impulsive decision to register celticsdownunder.com and create something from nothing.
Thanks to everyone in the community, especially folks like Justin, Hayley, Tommy, big Kaine, Michael, Nate, Olly, Joel and so on. I’m looking forward to many more great seasons together. Bleed green folks.
