News & Opinion: We Are Two Years Old Today

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:55 PM – Filed under: The Company

The 800ceoread blog is two years old today.

This is where it all started for me. I had been doing the Business Blog Book Tour and Tom Ehrenfeld thought Jack and I should meet. It was a little weird that we only lived about 30 miles from each other. I actually interviewed for a job which Jack and I both agreed wasn't a good fit. I came back to Jack about a month later and said we should start a blog. He agreed. I was getting paid to be a blogger before people were even asking if companies would pay people to blog.

Well, one blog lead to three blogs. And that led to our caring for ChangeThis. And that led to the monster we call inBubbleWrap.

I now have a fulltime job telling you about what is cool in business ideas and figuring out what this little company of ours should do next. It is the most fun I have ever had.

So, I hope you aren't surprised if I tell you there are some cool things on the drawing board.

Stay Tuned....and here is to many more...
