5 months of Roxetteblog – thanks!

On April 29th we started with Roxetteblog, not really knowing where this would lead us to. Five months later, we get a big smile on our faces when we see:

  • We have written 209 posts, to which you wrote 389 comments
  • We have had about 4,000 unique visitors per month and 102,000 views in these 5 months

We now think it’s time for three things:

  • Thank you all for your support!!!
  • Thank you for your contribution to the site as well: keep the articles and news coming!
  • Ask you for your feedback:  we would like to know what you like and you dislike about this website. What you miss, what we could do to improve it.

You can leave your messages here, or use the contact form or our Twitter account @roxetteblog. Thanks!

And I personally want to thank the team behind Roxetteblog: Tomasz, Kirsten, Sascha and Jiri for their time investigating and writing great articles 🙂

Something about comments and new users

Just wanted to clarify one thing about comments. Only registered users are allowed to comment. But: you can only comment after your first comment has been “approved”. Once this first comment from you is approved, then you can add as many comments as you want without any delay. That’s why some comments are not shown inmediately.

Enjoy!

Roxetteblog.com opens its doors

So we finally decided to go public with Roxetteblog.com

This website or blog was born from the idea of wanting to have all events and news happening around Roxette in one single place, as a sort of archive. In the last weeks, with Per Gessle’s tour and the rumours about Roxette, there’s been a lot going on. I’ve been regularly visiting 3 forums and 2-3 websites to get news, links to performances, pictures and so on and trying to keep track of all.. but I failed. I then started to collect all interesting links in “My Favourites”, but it soon became a mess and started to get lost. Excel lists didn’t help either.

So here’s where this website comes in. First I thought of doing it for myself, but then I thought it might help others as well. The idea is based on the microblogging such as Twitter.  It’s about having the most information, all packed in one website. An archive if you want to call it like that. Easy to search, easy to access, simple but useful. As our logo says, don’t miss a Roxette & Co thing! Or don’t forget where you read or found this or that about Roxette & CO!

Kirsten aka Kiwein (DE) joined this project as soon as I told her about this idea (thx for the theme!). She runs the German fanpage and forum.
Tomos85 (PL), Tevensso (SE) and Abysmo (CZ) also joined us this weekend. We also count with the collaboration of Mixella (RO) from Roxette.ro.

We are still looking for collaborators, fans who are very active in the Rox community and who love to share links to news and information they find in the net. Would you like to join the project? Just contact us and we’ll talk about it. The only think we ask for is your active participation, notifying us about any interesting links. As you can see in the existing articles, they don’t have to be “nice”, it is most of the times more than enough to write a few words with a link to the source.

We also want to use this site to share own thoughts about Roxette & Co. What forum do we like most/recommend? Other artists we think other Roxers might like? What’s going on in the Rox community? Who is going to what show?

And of course, your feedback is more than welcome!
