Over the past 3 months I’ve seen a large growth in my Camaro Forums. Up until about 2 months ago traffic, registrations, and post activity were all at a somewhat consistant rate (not as high as I’d like), then in February the exposure of the site really began to take off and I’ve grown from 300 Members (took a bit over a year) to 545 members today (thats 245 in less than 5 months). I’ve been waiting for the time where the amount of users and data on the site would make it begin to really roll on its own. Now that this time is here, it was well worth the 1 year wait. I’m sure there have been other forums that have gotten 545 members in weeks, but I’m really happy with the content, timing, and most of all community that we’ve created in a very saturated and powerful niche.
This goes to show that even though it may take some time, if you’re passionate about a subject that is saturated, don’t let it completely dismiss your ideas and inspiration. This isn’t to say it will be easy, or that it will even succeed, but with a bit of work and determination it can be done.
On a side note; It’s been a while since I’ve updated here, but I’ll try to keep a more routine schedule now to keep the info flowing.
