When you’re a new parent, you have a name all picked out for your little bundle of joy, right?
But we never got around to giving our mascot a name. And his first birthday is just around the corner! And that’s where you come in…
Would you help us name our mascot? We affectionately call him “the little dude” around the Social Media Examiner offices. We want to make this fun, so we’ve got some great prizes we’ll give away to the readers who come up with the best names. See below for details.
The Dude’s Wild Ride
It’s hard to believe that Social Media Examiner is not yet even a year old! With the help of outstanding writers and a brilliant reader base (yep, that’s you!), we’ve achieved a lot.
When Alexa ranks you as one of the top 1700 websites in the United States, that’s pretty shocking for a newborn site. But that didn’t come without a lot of work.
Here are some interesting factoids you may not have known about us:
- 50 experts contributed more than 230,000 words of original content to our site
- 11,000+ comments bless our posts
- 16,000+ people interact with us on Facebook
- 37,000+ readers get our updates in their email boxes each day
- 192,000 unique people read our content last month
Here’s one more… The original idea for our mascot came from our designer Greg Grigoriou‘s young son who poses for the unique illustrations you’ll find on our site.
